Excerpt: This lens is great for portraits. I shoot a lot of weddings, and even in low light, this produces a great image with an aperture of f/2. In good lighting conditions it really shines. The only thing I have an issue with is the lack of IS (Image Stabilization.) But, for the price, I can overlook that.
Excerpt: I bought this lens not knowing what to expect. It was my first prime lens which I got myself and for some reason, I picked this 100mm over the nifty fifty. When I finally received it, it was a really good lens. But when I kept using it over the months, I realized that this was a great lens.
Excerpt: This lens has become my favorite lens in my Arsenal. Amazing bokeh, incredible sharpness (L quality), great color out of camera, and solid. This is a pure beauty and for the price, you CANT. C-A-N-T beat it.
Excerpt: Superb medium telephoto landscape lens on full-frame at apertures ranging from f/8-f/16. Clean and sharp edge to edge, nearly zero distortion, and great color/contrast. It's exactly what you want for professional landscape work. I only use prime lenses..
