ef_100_28_1_
Review Date: Feb 1, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $590.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Great sharpness at all aperatures, great macro features, great AF for a macro lens
Cons:
None

I own a number of L lenses as well as the 45 mm tilt-shift, and the tilt-shift lens is the only one that beats this lens in sharpness, but that's a manual focus only lens.

Shooting at all distances, from macro to infinity, this lens is sharp as can be and it now serves as my general purpose lens when I don't want to carry around a whole pile of lenses.

Built quality could be better, but for a relatively inexpensive lens it does quite nicely.

There's also something to be said for its light weight, especially when compared to the aforementioned tilt-shift lens, which requires a tripod as well.
