Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM

ef_100_28_1_
Review Date: Apr 14, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $450.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Sharp and light
Cons:
No lenshood, (but no flare seen yet).

As I bought this one for the macro abilities, but soon I discovered to have a very nice sharp portrait lens also!
Usually I use(d) the 70-200mm L IS for the portrait part. This small and light 100mm lens is very versatile and allows me to go extremely close. Macro is sharp and portrait is sharp, comparable to the 70-200. Although I prefer the bokeh of the 70-200 still. Together with my 16-35 a very nice light walk a(ll)round lens kit.
As a macro lens it delivers nice colorfull images at 1:1.
A must have lens!
