There is a bit of a learning curve, but so is Macro.

Excerpt: I've had the 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS for a week. There is a definite learning curve. I am new to Macro, so I was expecting it. The definition and detail that this lens captures is remarkable. The weight is not an issue for me, as others have mentioned. I use it with my Canon 70D and an extender.
Great detail and it's what you'd expect from a red ring

Excerpt: I've been using this lens on my Sony a7ii and its great! Pretty crazy how close you can get to your subject. The detail is outstanding. Only downside is that it is a plastic lens, although it feels just as sturdy as any other L lens (which is why I didn't give it a 4/5) Optics are sharp and crisp,...
Pros: Consistent Output, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I am a technical photographer and video maker. I find this lens to be very sharp and fun to work with. The AF is accurate and fast. I have tried using two extension rings too with good success (36 mm total) with a 5DM3. My only warning is to watch the direction of light when you use this lens.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I have a deep love of Canon L-series lenses, but I didn't have a macro lens I loved, so when I got a chance, I picked up this one. As others mention, the bokeh is ridiculously perfect. The focus and clarity are every bit the best Canon has to offer: I would argue that only the TS lenses are sharper.
Excerpt: My first L-series lens and it is well worth the price paid. Pictures are super sharp where they need to be with a nice bokeh. I've even used handheld for non-macro photos and have had great results.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
