5.0 out of 5 stars Without fault., 19 Aug 2011
This review is from: Canon EF 100mm f2.8L Macro IS USM Lens (Accessory)
*Bold statement alert* I can't begin to explain how much you need this lens in your life. For a sub-1k lens it is beyond amazing.

Although this is a macro lens, it is also one of Canon's most popular portrait lenses. Why? The focal length is great. The images are razor sharp at f/2.8 (wide open). The I.S. is very effective. It's lightweight.

The body is made from a kind of high quality plastic instead of the normal metal used in L-lenses. I didn't know this at the time of ordering, but rest assured it really isn't an issue. In fact, it's probably a benefit as it makes the lens very light.

I use this lens almost exclusively at f/2.8 for portraits. It is stunningly sharp. Honestly, there is no hint of wide open softness and this blows me away ever time. The autofocus is accurate and quick (but not lighting quick), and the I.S. does its job perfectly.

I've only used it twice for macro duties so I don't feel I can comment fully. On both occasions I did use it though, it performed very well.

That just about sums it up. Buy it.
