Great budget option for court sports-- fast lens

Mina Carson, Amazon
6 January 2015
  • Summary: If you are on a budget (who isn't?), and you shoot a lot of schoolkid court sports, this is a great option. As a fast lens, it allows you to do without flash (and who would want or be allowed to blind the players, anyway?).

EF 100mm f/2 USM Lens by Canon

Syl, B&H Photo
6 January 2015
  • Excerpt: This is a great lens, except that it didn't suit my purposes and I returned to buy a 70-200 f\4 L IS instead. Here is why.I wanted to have a high aperture lens to take portraits of my 3-year old. At f\2 I would have a nice blurry background.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh

Crisp lightweight lens

Peter Lemonjello, B&H Photo
24 March 2014
  • Excerpt: This lens does a great job at getting reasonably closer to a subject without having to be in their face to get a good shot. Lightweight, great depth of field. Solid prime lens. I wish the F-stop was 1.4 like it's 50mm cousin to do even better in low light, but I'm sure that would kick the price up...
  • Pros: Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light

Great Lens!

Movie Lover, Amazon

  • Summary: This lens is a great buy for the money. I can't afford a super "high end" glass, and after reading the reviews thought I'd give this one a try. It turned out to be a great addition to my arsenal; whether I'm shooting stills or video.

Great cheap prime.

Nikola, Amazon
10 August 2013
  • Summary: Good bang for the buck -- it's like the 50 1.4's Uncle Jim-Bob. Unfortunately, it's a somewhat awkward length, at least on full-frame, and I ended up selling it a few months later because it graced the front of my camera just once in that time.

Lurcus, Adorama
20 May 2013
  • Excerpt: Despite its age, that's still an amazing lens. Unfortunately, it lacks the stabilizer and the AF is not up to the best Canon lenses, but other than that, this lens is just great. Distortion is negligible, vignetting is very well controlled and sharpness is very good throughout the whole frame even...
