The best native Canon macro.

  • Excerpt: Well, I do agree with the rest of the reviews; It is a really good lens and you will get some really nice images using it! The connection between the 100 mm's and the 2.8 aperture gives you a fantastic range of possibilities.

(IS) Is worth it

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: If you are wondering whether IS is worth it, it is. When I first got this lense I was experimenting with the settings and when it came time for a shoot, I hadn't realized the IS was off. Very few pictures turned out sharp. My next shoot I made sure IS was on and nearly all the images are tack sharp.

Fantastic piece of glass

  • Summary: Debated between purchasing the 100mm and 180mm F 3.5 macro. There might come a time where I'll wish that I had the extra 6 or so inches in minimum focusing distance but conversely, the larger aperture on the 100 will probably come in handy at some point too. Having IS is always nice as well.

Epic Bokar.

  • Summary: The 18-200 is a nice lens and takes sharper pictures than the Tamron equivalent, but the clarity of the Nikon 50mm 1.8G is in a completely different league. What it lacks in versatility it more than makes up for in clarity and "wow" factor. On the D80, this lens functions as a 75mm prime lens.

Excellent Macro Lens

  • Summary: Very sharp lens. So far I can't find anything to complain about. I have discovered that lens extenders such as the Canon EF 25 II Extension Tube do not add much magnification. The attached photo are samples from this lens.

The quintessential macro lens.

Hersh Bhargava, Amazon
17 March 2016
  • Summary: This is one of the best lenses I've owned. Paired with my EOS 6D, I have had excellent results. The autofocus mechanism is a bit slow since it has such a large range (infinity to 1:1), but the physical switch to adjust the focal range improves the speed quite a bit.

Owned both the non-IS and the IS - this one is the keeper by far

Jim, Amazon

  • Summary: My typical Canon 6D configuration is a 35mm f/2 IS USM (an excellent lens, which I’d recommend over any walkaround lens short of possibly the 50mm/f1.2L), but there are times when a 35 just doesn’t cut it.
