Canon EF 100mm f/2 USM

Review Date: Jan 15, 2010 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

Pros: I read about it, and found out that it would be very sharp. I expected a lot, but was still very astonished about the sharpness.
None, really. Even the filter tread is perfect.

I expected this to be a normal lens. One wich would be VERY sharp at f/2,8 and a bit softer more open. I got it wrong: it is very sharp, even at f/2,0.
It was even sharper than I expected it could be at f/2,0.

I mainly shoot nature, although since I have this lens, I'd love to do portraits more often. That's just because this lens is a pleasure to use, expecially wide open.

Search for a cheap one secondhand, it is wonderful.
