Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM

ef_100_28_1_
Review Date: Sep 27, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Very sharp, good color, nice weight and it seems to fit the 350d very well.
Cons:
Focusing seems very poor in bad light (I even fail quite often to achieve focus lock in reasonably adequate light indoors). I have no other bad feelings about this lens. I guess something that many may not know is that at 1:1 the focal length is nearer 70mm due to the internal focusing. This may be important for some but it doesn't bother me.



 
Canon EF 50mm f/1.8

Review Date: Sep 27, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Very cheap for what you get, focusing seems to be pretty accurate, much sharper at 50mm than my kit lens, very light, pretty good at f1.8, nice metal feel.
Cons:
For me 50mm (80 equiv. on my 350d) is a little long for my favourite uses of f1.8 (indoor e.t.c) so its a shame this quality lens for this price isn't a slightly better focal length. Nothing else really bothers me about this lens though.
