ef_100_28_1_
Review Date: May 20, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: True macro, good color rendering, bokeh is great, build quality, not heavy, USM!, and Very Sharp!
Cons:
no IS, but it will be more expensive.

I bought this lens with 17-40 f4L to get the 250 bucks canon rebates, they are my first macro L lens. I was to get the 24-105mm but I figured I could get 2 lens with cheaper price, yes I made a right choice. I thought I would use 17-40mm for my walkaround lens but when i went to the park with my wife in the weekend, boy once we saw the insects and flowers we just switched to the this macro lens, and the results are fantastic! This lens also produce very very good portrait pictures, in my opinion I feel the quality is better than my 50mm f1.8. The autofocus is pretty decent, and I could manual focus it too when it's in auto mode, that's what USM about, I love it!! For portraits, the focal length is little bit long on my 30D, but I can accept this for its superb quality. I love this lens more than my 17-40mmL honestly, more fun!
