Nice photos

  • Excerpt: I wasn't sure about this lens at first since it seems more plastic than the other L-series lenses I have purchased from Canon. But the images are sharp and despite the noise of the auto-focus, it appears to be good quality glass. Makes nice portraits and I am enjoying the sharp macro feature.
  • Pros: Sharp Macro Images

  • Excerpt: Have been testing few Macro lenses from friends,<br />EF 100mm is the final winner that I got.<br />Sharpness with 1: 1 ratio makes the price worthy.

Great Prime Lens for Various Purposes

Rob at MyFocus.com, B&H Photo
3 January 2014
  • Excerpt: This has turned out to be a great prime lens for portrait photography (on my full-frame camera) as well as macro photography of bugs and jewelry. I also want to give it a try with the moon rise when the weather gets better. I'm glad I got the 50mm f/1.2 and the 100mm macro rather than the 85mm or another zoom lens. The only catch with the macro lens has been getting used to the extra switch that speeds up the focus by limiting its range.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Variety Of Uses
  • Cons: Additional Controls

Worth the money

  • Excerpt: I bought this lens for product and apparel work. It hasn't disappointed. The macro functionality works great and I love the ability to shorten the focal distance to speed up the autofocus. <br /><br />It feels very solidly built while still being lightweight.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight

Excellent Lens

Vince, B&H Photo
15 October 2013
  • Excerpt: I use this as a telephoto prime for portraits and general use and for macro shooting. The pictures are crisp and sharp and the bokeh is excellent. For the price, this is an excellent lens. A couple of small complaints is that an adapter is required for the ring flash and I am unable to use a UV filter when using the ring flash.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Slow Focus

Really enjoying this lens

  • Excerpt: I was hesitant about putting the $$ out for this lens but after using it a few times, I am glad that I did! Have only had the chance to use it a few times but I am very excited about the results and looking forward to using it more. Still getting adjusted to focusing - manual vs auto.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh

  • Excerpt: very nice barrel, comfortable. <br />fast autofocus. <br />crisp images. bright. <br />image stabilizer on status makes a little bit of noise - not sure if its supposed to - but i think its just the motor. <br />used it with rebel t2i and got great results.
