Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM

ef_100_28_1_
Review Date: May 5, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $375.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Vibrant colors, long focal length, close minimum focusing distance, f/stop, autofocus override, and outstanding bokeh.
Cons:
Subject to motion blur more than what seems normal.

I love this lens for the colors and bokeh. I am a big macro fan, so being able to make a 10 inch print of a single grain of rice at full photo quality is just amazing. I find myself more subject to available-light issues than with other lenses and am always battling motion blur. Crazy as it sounds, I wish they released a stabilized version even though it is only 100mm. I was considering the competition because of price, but I was able to snag this for less than the competition anyways, and it is a far better lens. Again, bokeh, colors.
