Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM

Review Date: Dec 31, 2010 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Good price for the quality (price dropped to 659 euros). Silent, fast focus. IS = effective to avoid blurred pictures. But also makes it easier to frame your picture. With non IS you spend energy to compensate (too much?) movements seen through the viewfinder
Cons:
Plastic. Probably no problem and the future for all lenses. But I just love the tough of my Contax Zeiss Planar f/1.4 50 mm. But this 100 mm is 10x better then my Sigma EX 500 mm macro. But my Sigma has a hood with a filter thread on the front to mount a 77 mm lenscap. Very smart. Canon your lenscaps sucks! Replaced all of them with $3 center pinch caps from Ebay. Will buy a neoprene lenshood to put over the hood. Tripod ring price is extremely overpriced. Will buy a JJC R-3 ring from Ebay for $11. Canon original is 145 euros! Perhaps goldplated under the black paint.
