Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM

ef10028lmisu_586x225
Review Date: Apr 4, 2010 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $884.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Feel in hand, sharp wide open at 2.8, weather sealing, IS, good focus speed
Cons:
A bit pricey

The 2.8L IS USM is a definitely step up from the 2.8 USM it replaces. Wide-open it really shines. Bokeh is definitely improved.

The IS is every effective even for macro shots (albeit more like 1-1.5 stops for macro use).

This lens is plastic, but it doesn't feel like the non-L plastic lenses. It feels better built and well sorted out.
