Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM

ef_100_28_1_
Review Date: Jul 6, 2014 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Insanely sharp, great colors and contrast and fantastic bokeh.
Cons:
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:
