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.
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:
