From the manufacturer
Discovering macro photography can open up a whole new way of seeing the world. You might want to capture the exquisite detail in the wing of a butterfly or a flower bud. Or you might choose to get creative – you can find the most stunning patterns and effects by magnifying the surface of everyday objects. The possibilities are endless.
A macro lens with Image Stabilizer for steady shots
The EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM is part of Canon’s prestigious L series and first in featuring an Image Stabilizer with angle and shift detection that is highly effective at close focusing distances. The lens offers a minimum focusing distance of 30cm.
Fast quiet autofocus
The ring USM (Ultrasonic Motor) drives extremely rapid autofocus with near-silent operation. Full time mechanical manual focus override is available without having to switch out of AF.
High image quality
An Ultra low Dispersion element within the lens design effectively removes chromatic aberration. This allows for excellent image quality with high resolution, high contrast and excellent colour reproduction.
Beautiful background blur
A circular 9-blade aperture helps to create attractive, even background bokeh when isolating subjects at wide apertures.

This is, quite honestly, a stunning lens - and I write as someone who has several L-series lenses. Image quality is startling - better than my go-to EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM; colour rendition faithful and bright. (Of course, it is a prime lens, but even so.)
As a walk-around lens, this has performed well for me as a medium telephoto - making me think about composition and using the "foot-zoom" has been fun. It is very well made and solid in feel without being heavy - as you'd expect from an L-series lens, build quality is excellent.
But of course it is the macro performance that is the best feature of this lens. Close focus is excellent, and the (supplied) lens hood allows you to get very close to the subject without worrying about contact with the glass - a real benefit of the 100mm macro lens against those with shorter focal lengths. The aperture of 2.8 is fast enough for hand-held performance in decent light - of course, at this aperture depth of field is VERY narrow: see the picture of the caterpillar for an image captured at f2.8; the burnets were captured at f5.6 - you can see the wider depth of field; the (white and pink) Great Masterwort was taken at f20.
In short, this is probably my favourite lens. I'd give 6 stars if I could!
All in all, incredibly happy with it although now after getting my first 'L' series lens - I want to upgrade all of my other lenses to 'L' too...best get saving.
I'm not an expert and I still have lots to learn but I love this lens. I can't wait until the spring when all the insects reappear so I can get back outside to photograph. I'm hoping with the use of a tripod, which I have yet to buy, I will be able to see just how much detail this lens can give. Highly recommend.
The IS helps a lot on this model if you like to wander round the garden (like me) and shoot hand held. Everything is smooth and creamy for macro, and pin sharp if you use it as a general prime lens. Probably one of the most versatile and best quality lens I have used, and I have a few L series lens for my 7D.
You can couple this lens to an extender if you also mount an extension tube between the camera body and lens. The cheapest canon extension tube is fine. This combination can increase the magnification for macro to greater than life size (on the sensor).
I picked this up at a promotional price when there was also a cash-back offer from Canon, so it was ridiculously cheap. Definitely pays to watch out for offers, both from Amazon and also from Canon.
Token review: it's a great lens, I'm on my second copy in 10 years, wouldn't swap it for the world. Great for portraits, good in the studio, and wonderful for chasing pieces of dust or bugs if that's your thing. As for me, this is a no-brainer for weddings and product photography.
Delivery, as usual with Amazon, was quick and as promised, and it was well packed.
