Review Date: Jan 13, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $250.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Fast, supersharp at F5.6, good colors and bokeh.
Cons:
Not a ring USM, does not provide distance info for ETTL-II.

I'd give the lens all 10s if it had ring USM and provided distance info to ETTL-II.

Canon EF 100mm f/2 USM

Review Date: Aug 8, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $325.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Extremely sharp @ F2.5 and up, very pleasant creamy and colorful bokeh, fast, precise autofocus on 20D, optical quality of L-lenses at non-L price.
Cons:
None.

I compared 100F2 side by side at 100mm to my favorite zoom 70-200F4L and 100F2 @ F2.8 beats the zoom @ F4 hands down in every respect of image quality. Sure it was not apple to apple comparison, but 70-200F4 was the best lens in my bag. Highly recommend for head portraiture. Now I'm considering purchase of 50mm F1.4.
