Style Name: EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM Verified Purchase
This lens is so good I've bought 2 of them. I had to sell my first lens due to financial reasons and bought another one at the earliest opportunity afterwards. Those months without it were a pain and I genuinely missed it!!

The lens is well built - a little lighter than I would have thought and it's fairly long but it doesn't feel flimsy.

Auto focus is good and fast in good light. If you're not using the lens for macro flick the switch on the side to limit the focus mechanism to anything greater than 48cm distance and it speeds up a whole lot more.

There's a full time focus ring and a manual/auto focus switch too. Focusing is internal meaning the lens doesn't grow in length as you're focusing which I really like.

Now down to the nitty gritty: image quality - which is really excellent. I personally bought the lens after reading many reviews on the web and I have not been disappointed in the least. Background blur is also very beautiful. Images are incredibly sharp all the way from f/2.8 so I have no reservations using the lens wide open. Stopped down a bit things just get better - the details this thing can resolve are outstanding. Operating at minimum focus distance (31cm) with an aperture of just 2.8 leads to a super narrow depth of field, we're talking probably 1 or 2mm is in sharp focus! However, it will allow you to be very selective about what is in focus.

Another good feature of the lens is that whilst achieving 1:1 reroduction at it's closest focusing distance it still gives you about 15cm from the end of the lens to the subject.

Style Name: EF 100mm f2.8L Macro IS USM
My first L-series lens was the 24-70mm, and I thought it was amazing. The 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM blows it out of the water as far as image quality is concerned. It's like experiencing that wonderful "introduction to L-quality" moment all over again.

The combination of prime optics and macro magnification mean that this lens gives pin sharp details at incredible scales. I really cannot stress enough just how good the detail resolution is at 1:1 magnification. I use a 7D and was expecting some loss of resolution due to the cropped sensor, but it is simply not apparent in full scale images. This lens is really fun to find uses for and it's kinda hard to keep it off the camera.

I can assure you that portraits from this lens are first class, especially when used in conjunction with flash bounced off a white ceiling. They are light, airy, and natural-looking. The focused areas are both razor sharp and finely detailed whereas bokeh is smooth and soft. Absolutely spot on! It can be a bit long for comfort on a cropped camera body but it is well worth the extra leg exercise. Using it for portraits and candids has given me an idea as to why people rave so much about the 135mm f/2L.

One area where this lens lacks somewhat is in its focus locking; it can sometimes seek a little, focus off-target, then lock on after a second. This means it is pretty poor at AF tracking - even when using AI Servo in anything less than bright light. Using the proper setting on the autofocus distance limiter is pretty much essential for most types of shot.

I use a Gretag-Macbeth colour chart to confirm colours with my camera/lens combinations and correct any drift.

Style Name: EF 100mm f2.8L Macro IS USM
I already own the non L version of this lens, and I was having problems holding the thing still in situations where I wanted to take photographs and didn't have any readily available support. So I decided to get the L, mainly for the stabilisation.

Optically, I can't really tell that there's much difference between L and non L, they're both incredibly sharp, even wide open. The MTF charts I've seen suggest that the new lens is sharper than the old, but, frankly, it's pretty hard to spot in an actual printed photograph.

The IS works really well, is quiet in operation, and for me, has made a huge difference to when and where I can use this lens. For portrait work you'll get the full 4 stops, for full on macro it's much less useful, but has already made the difference between me getting a usable shot or not.

AF is quick, but can hunt a little if you've not chosen the appropriate distance range (there are three to choose from), but in practice this shouldn't be a problem unless you suddenly switch from macro to portrait.

Overall, size and weight are pretty much the same as the non L, but with a larger filter size. The surface of the lens barrel has a textured finish and in profile the lens looks squarer than the non L, without that tapered look. I think it feels nicer in the hand than the non L.

If you think you need the IS, buy this lens, if you think you can do without, the non IS version will give you images of (to all intents and purposes) identical image quality at a considerable saving. It's a similar situation to the 70-200L zooms, where the only difference between the two was the IS.
