Review Date: Feb 20, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,600.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: wide aperture, superb build quality, practical lens hood, very sharp
Cons:
weight, feels a bit weird (short & heavy), price, a little slow focus

This lens is awesome.
You can't imagine how fun such a large aperture can be.
I get a little paranoid about scratching the rear element, but I'll get over it Smile

Canons definitive portrait lens.
Image quality is excellent. (I noticed a little CA tho')


 
Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM

ef_100_28_1_
Review Date: Feb 20, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $300.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: 1:1 magnification, build quality, bang for the buck
Cons:
can hunt a little

A truly excellent lens.
The build quality is exceptional.
I use it primary for macro work, but it's also good for portraiture.

The focus ring is very broad and feels nice.

For macro a no-brainer
