Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM

ef_24-70_28u_1_
Review Date: Feb 14, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,200.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Solid, weather-sealed, wide 2.8 aperture, fast USM autofocus, substantial hood included, resistant to flare, sharp even wide open all through focal range, works well with extension tubes for macro work
Cons:
Weight, size can be intimidating when hood attached, not wide enough on 1.6 crop

I've only used this lens on a 30D but found all the "Positive aspects" listed above to be true.
Would like to try it on full frame body.
It is my most used lens (ahead of 10-22 EF-S and 70-200 f4 IS).


 
Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM

ef_100_28_1_
Review Date: Sep 29, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Sharp Fast and accurate auto-focus when set on 0.48m - infinity (on 30D) Smooth bokeh Resistant to flare No CA, even in extreme contrast situations
Cons:
Auto-focus can hunt a little when set on 0.31m - infinity. Sometimes requires manual help, but not a serious drawback for macro work.
