  • Excerpt: I was hesitant at first to buy this lens it was between this and the sigma 150mm, I am glad I went with the Canon. I was also hesitant to buy it used but i saved a couple hundred dollars. This was a great investment as I am starting to get more in to food photography.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction

Great Lens

  • Excerpt: I have so far tested out this lens on some product photography and wedding like detail ring shots. It is a great lens, beautiful detail and I absolutely love the colors it produces. Like others have said it can be slow to focus and 'hunt and peck' if in low light, but if you can find a harsh edge for the lens to focus on it usually does alright.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Slow Focus

Unbeatable Images

Rob the Hiker, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I purchased the lens primarily for macro work with insects, spiders, and other creepy crawlers. I was nearly persuaded to purchase the Sigma 105 mm macro because of the lesser cost. However, I was reminded by a fellow professional photographer of the Canon build quality and the exceptional sharpness reported in reviews.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged
  • Cons: Heavy

Close up detail makes for great video.

  • Excerpt: Even though I've rented this lens before, it's still somewhat new to me. I was going to rent it again for a 13 day old puppy video but decided to purchase it instead. This lens worked great with a Canon 5d 3. I love close up shots (especially for cute puppies!) so for me this lens is essential. I really enjoy the visuals it allows me to get. I've read that some think the lens is heavy, I don't think it's that heavy.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Nice Bokeh

A home run

  • Excerpt: This was a birthday present for my wonderful wife. She loves her camera and her new lens. Photography is her hobby and her passion. I think I scored points on the wonderful hubby index as she is still smiling. The quality of this lens is up to Canon standards and she has already taken some stunning close-ups. Great lens!
