Excerpt: I got this to complement my Sigma 150 f/2.8 macro, which has too much reach for some types of closeup shots. The color rendition and contrast are superb, and it is very sharp. Autofocus is fast and accurate. It is also relatively light, even though it seems well constructed.
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
Sharp lens, good image stabilization, somewhat noisy focus

Excerpt: These are my initial impressions of the Canon 100mm f/2.8 macro IS USM lens: 1. Very sharp at macro distances 2. Good contrast with limited vignetting 3. Image stabilization very good, maybe excellent 4. USM focus mechanism a bit slow and noisy when compared to other Canon USM IS lenses I own.
Excerpt: I recently purchased this lens for capturing images of small plants and wildlife. It has enough reach that I don't need to get too close, and I can capture a wide range of subjects. It even works well as a simple 100mm prime.
Excerpt: My go to lens is my canon 70-200 2.8. Even after purchasing the 100mm macro I have to say that is still true. However, I have never felt like my close-up portrait work was As good as I liked. Problem solved!
Amazing dept of field for a fraction of the price.

Excerpt: This is a great product for it's price. It works well in low light and it is very light to carry around compared to the 70-200mm I own. Granted the quality is not going to be 100% like the 70-200mm lens, however it does give you a run for your money.
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
Excerpt: I use this lens mostly on a 7D2. It makes very nice images very sharp (even on the crop sensor camera), high contrast, great background blur. I like it a lot and I'm not going to be parting with it any time soon. However, the autofocus performance in low light has been something of a disappointment.
Amazing image quality, but poor focusing in low light

Excerpt: I'm using this lens on a 7D2 body. Compared to other lenses this one focuses noticeably slower and has more trouble in low light than any other lens I own, including some much much cheaper glass.
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
