Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM

Review Date: Aug 13, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Sharp. Well built. Fast focus.
Cons:
When you use it with 1.4x TC and EF12mm tube you can't focus to infinity or even close anymore. This is probably normal? Tripod collar 'B' is a rip off, as is the hood.

I really like this lens. It's so so so sharp. I discovered ant and bee tongues with it!

I bought it for macro: http://www.flickr.com/photos/philchambers/15171717/in/set-367746/

but it's a great portrait lens too: http://www.flickr.com/photos/philchambers/13661593/

It's probably easier to manually focus it at macro distances, especially if you're chasing bees or similar.

Get one - they're cheap as chips!!

lots of example shots:
