Excerpt: I was given this lens as a Christmas gift and I absolutely love it. Every product I have purchased from B&H has been off the highest quality, and this lens is no different. This lens allows the photographer to have complete control over which details to capture and provides such a smooth interface...
Updated: Not a Canon product, but a very good dealer!

Summary: My earlier review reflected frustration at receiving a lens that didn't fit my camera. The mistake was mine, so I'm revising my review. Although I still think the heading for this item is misleading -- the product is "Canon-compatible," but it is not a "Canon" product -- this is nevertheless a very...

Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I use this lens when I do close up nature photography and it is just awesome. The pictures come out exactly like I picture them to be from a macro. The awesome part about this lens is that its not just a macro photography lens but can also be used as a portrait lens, so it is very versatile.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction

Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
Excerpt: Before purchasing this lens I scoured the reviews on many other Macro lenses here at BH. Narrowing it down to the Canon 60mm, 100mm, and 180mm. I really wanted to get sharp nature/butterfly photos that would reveal details that our eyes cannot see.
Excerpt: I've only used the product for a couple of weeks, but first results meet/exceed my expectations. My interest is in close up shots of flowers and insects. I've learned: (1) the lens does a far better job than my 17-55mm f2.8 lens (as well it should), (2) DOF is very shallow, (3) and hand-held shots...
