Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM

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
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

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
Auto-focus can hunt a little when set on 0.31m - infinity. Sometimes requires manual help, but not a serious drawback for macro work.
