Good Macro for those on a budget

  • Excerpt: I have only been using this as a portrait lens so far, but backgrounds have been soft and creamy and focus has been sharp. I'm used to having IS in a lens, so I'll have to get used to this, but I didn't feel spending so much more for the IS version was worth it. For macro work, of course a tripod will be necessary.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh

Good lens

  • Excerpt: I've really been enjoying this lens. I wish I'd splurged on the IS lens, because it's hard to keep steady in certain positions. But a monopod really helps. On a tripod, the images are exceptionally sharp and colorful.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh

Awesome Lens!!

  • Excerpt: I had read a lot of positive reviews about this lens and they were right. Works really nice with my Canon 7D. I especially liked it for shooting fast paced events and animals. The only thing I didn't like about this lens was it didn't work well in low light. I had read some other reviews that stated that as well, so I wasn't surprised when I experienced the same thing.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light

Great Classic Lens

  • Excerpt: I recently moved from APS-C (EOS 50D) to full frame (EOS 6D). So I needed a replacement for my EF-S 2.8/60 Macro. I did some research and finally decided to get the 2.8/100 Macro.I also considered the Canon 2.8/100 IS and the Sigma 2.8/105 OS HSM. But the use of IS is somewhat questionable in macro photography.
  • Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction

Great macro & portrait lens

  • Excerpt: I am a portrait photographer but always wanted to try macro photography. Everything I have read has indicated this is a great macro lens for the price and I completely agree. Plus it gives me a fixed lens that is perfect for portraits. At f/2.8 it gives you a nice fast lens with a great narrow depth of field. My only 'complaint' is that it's not a quick autofocus lens. But if you are doing macro photography that's really not an issue anyway.
  • Pros: Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Slow Focus
