Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM

ef_100_28_1_
Review Date: Aug 17, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: very sharp, macro, fast focus
Cons:
af hunts, pretty loud af

Well i rented this lens to play around a bit and shot some tennis and macro things around the house. I'm pretty impressed with this lens. AF is fast but it hunts sometimes which takes some getting used to. The build quality imo isnt the greatest. Dont get me wrong it feels solid but a lens hood should come stock to help avoid hitting the glass when shooting macro (the lens extends quite a ways). Other then that it is super sharp and would reccomend it to anyone who loves to shoot bugs and flowers and even portrait. I think for sports i'd stay away....it wasnt designed for sports but could be applied occasionally

Pros: sharp, quick af, decent price
Cons:
no is, f/4

overall this is a solid lens. I borowed this lens to shoot some baseball and i am pretty impressed. AF is quiet and fast, lens hood helps when its bright out. I didnt notice any lens flare either. The only downside is its f/4 and no IS which can effect how your pictures come out when your hand holding in places that arent well lit. Other then that there really is nothing to complain about this lens is super sharp and i think a pretty good price when you consider what you get. I definately recommend this lens to any photo enthusist that doesnt have the money for pro equipment.
