FAB! Buy one now!,
This review is from: Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 USM Macro Lens - non Image Stabilised (Camera)
This is a fantastic lens. I was originally looking at some other cheaper makes but so dam glad I parted with the extra money (which in truth was not that much more).
As the others write, the lens is Sharpe and very salient. A silly little thing which I really like is the fact you can have the autofocus setting on and still be able to manually help it a little without the usual horrible noise from the motor sounding like you're about to severely damage it. No idea if this is really allowed or not but seems not to damage it and allows me to get that required picture much faster.
In short, another happy owner of this lens. If you want to see some pics taken with it go to [...] where you can see some quick snaps of some fruit and the best is the matches. Notice the detail. The 60mm allows you to be at a good distance to take them.

"No idea if this is really allowed or not".... It's allowed! Its a feature of the lens called full time manual focusing. Very worthwhile looking for it on any future lens you buy as well.
