What is the general consensus on the EF 100/2 ?
Pretty darn good lens?
I'm not a Ken Rockwell devotee, but I just read his review, and it was very positive, and he didn't joke around or talk sarcastically at all in it as he often does. He just said it was a really good lens and gave some solid reasons why.
It's my top choice at the moment for my very first EF lens.
I've been shooting Nikon since 2000, and now that I have a full Nikon setup, I'm looking to start a small Canon system. I have an EOS A2 body that I can't really use until I get a lens. in fact, I only used it once so far a couple of years ago, with a friend's 17-40 L, 50/1.8, and 70-200 L IS lenses. So I'd be shooting this lens strictly on film (mostly b&w and color neg) for the time being.
This would be my only EF lens for a while. 100mm is one of my favorite focal lengths, and I don't actually have a 105mm Nikkor lens.
I have a current nearby friend who uses Canon, but doesn't have any fast primes, but has a 70-200 L. So maybe I can convince we can share lenses during shooting outings.
Thanks. Merry Christmas / Happy Holidays.
