Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM

Review Date: Jul 6, 2014 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

Pros: Insanely sharp, great colors and contrast and fantastic bokeh.
No lens hood supplied so had to buy one as an extra purchase. Slow focus, but this is par for the course with a macro lens like this.

As a wedding photographer I use this lens for detail shots (rings, shoes, flowers, table details) and on occasion also for couple portraits. Sharpness is way better than my Canon 70-200 F2.8 L IS, and the quality of the bokeh also far superior.

Very happy with this lens and have no immediate desire to upgrade to the L, stabilized version.

Here are a couple of examples of images I have shot using this lens with my 5D MK iii:
