5 out of 5 stars   Top quality lens
(Vancouver, WA) April 05, 2014
Review submitted for Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM Lens (CN10028ISL)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: The lens is even better than I expected. Clarity is excellent. Depth of field is exactly as expected. My very first pictures were hand held and the IS worked very well. Others commented that the AF was loud - I found it to be barely audible.

3 out of 5 stars   Regret Purchase
By Android (Boulder City, NV) December 23, 2013
Review submitted for Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM Lens (CN10028ISL)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Nice Bokeh
Cons: Touchy manual focus
Other Comments: The focus ring turns only about 135 degrees from infinity to max close focus, so the manual focusing is very touchy especially at high magnification. There is an element in the lens that rattles and can visibly be seen moving around when the lens is not on the camera. This stops when the lens is attached. I'm told this is normal. It seems that there is potential for damage during transport. Rattling parts do not inspire confidence, even if rattling is considered "normal". I regret this purchase.

5 out of 5 stars   Superb macro
By Dr P (Los Angeles, CA) December 22, 2013
Review submitted for Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM Lens (CN10028ISL)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Strong Construction, Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus
Cons: Bulky
Other Comments: Another terrific lens by Canon. Very affordable for an L series lens. If you have a lot of macro photography needs, then this is a must have. I use it for close up medical photography with stunning results. For optimal results, get a ring flash as well.

By danndanndanndann (Los Angeles, Ca) May 22, 2013
Review submitted for Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM Lens (CN10028ISL)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Nice Bokeh
Cons:
Other Comments: The price was ridiculously good! Had to do a double take to make sure this was the right lens. If you're looking for a great macro and portrait lens, this is it. I do both so it helps not having to swap lenses a lot. It's also a fast lens so it makes it possible to easily shoot in low light.

5 out of 5 stars   Great lens, not just for macro
By Mystiqz (New York, NY) May 22, 2013
Review submitted for Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM Lens (CN10028ISL)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Nice Bokeh, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction, Durable, Lightweight
Cons:
Other Comments: Prime lenses tend to give better image quality than zoom lenses and this lens is no exception. It focuses extremely fast. Probably not as fast as the 135L lens, but comes close. Definitely faster than the 85 and 50. It's a great lens for portraits too. This lens is very versatile and I think the macro is an added bonus.
