Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM

Review Date: Apr 21, 2010 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $883.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: Super sharp. Smooth as butter. Quiet and fast.
Didn't come with air conditioning.

The most fun lens I own. Unbelievably sharp right out of the box--no need for micro-adjustment. Excellent color, too. Of my four IS lens, this one is the most effective.

I was simply blown away by the image quality--I'll even give it the nod over my much loved 70-200 f4L IS. If you can justify the expense, run--don't walk--and get one. BTW, I bought mine during the Canon spring sale, so that is why it's a little cheaper than normal.

Canon EF-S 17-55 f/2.8 IS USM

Review Date: Jul 10, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $960.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: Amazing image quality. Very sharp wide open. IS is da' bomb. Very good color. Quiet, accurate focusing.
None I really care about.

I finally decided that I needed new glass more than I needed to upgrade to my 20D. My first purchase--after much thought and research--has been the 17-55 IS. It has not disappointed. The sharpness is amazing. Also, there is simply no better lowlight zoom lens on the market. I love to shoot with natural light whenever possible, and this lens makes it much more possible than when using my older 18-50 2.8 Sigma.

Excellent lens.
