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.

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.

Pros: Great macro ability, Durable, Consistent Output, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction, Fast / accurate auto-focus
Cons: Heavy
Other Comments: Great lens for not just macro work, which is why I got it, but also for portrait work. Really great clean images. Responds pretty well to dim light, just watch out for high ISO, but that's a camera body issue not this awesome lens. Weird thread size for filters, but easy to find filters for.

5 out of 5 stars   Great lens - really 4.5. Macros and more
By pase0 (St Louis MO) September 26, 2011
Review submitted for Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM Lens (CN10028ISL)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Hybrid IS, Dust and weather sealing, Rugged, Very nice optical quality, Very Sharp, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction, Durable
Cons: A bit inconsistant AF, Expensive, Not best L build
Other Comments: Great lens - my first L so I can't really compare to other Ls. However, I can compare the build quality on this vs the 17-55 2.8 and this is definitely a step up but not as much as I had expected. It's probably the large amount of plastic use that gives the perception of less than typical L quality. The plus on plastics use is the relatively lighter weight. Very nice brokeh with the 9 blade aperture. Only real con I saw was some AF misses at times. Not sure if only my copy or if this is representative of the lens. This lens is great for low-light portrait shots, limited landscape use, and macros. I found sufficient working distance with this 100mm for my purposes but can see why pros recommmend using 180mm+ for serious macro use to have greater working distance.

By Sailracer (Hudson, MA) July 25, 2011
Review submitted for Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM Lens (CN10028ISL)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Nice Bokeh, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Easily Interchangeable
Cons: Expensive
Other Comments: This lens is very sharp and provides a good working distance for macro subjects. The IS is also useful for hand held portrait work. I can't comment on the ruggedness as it is still pretty new, but Canon L products have a good reputation in that regard. The only downside is the price, but it should hold it's value well.

By BForward (California) December 30, 2010
Review submitted for Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM Lens (CN10028ISL)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Consistent Output
Cons:
Other Comments: I have photos that regularly appear in a quarterly magazine, most of which are taken with Canon L lenses. This lens is noticeably sharper and faster focusing than any of the others I own in that series. Its image stabilization (IS) is amazing and appears to have given me at least two extra f/ stops.

Pros: Nice Bokeh, Easily Interchangeable, Good with 5D M II, Fast / accurate auto-focus
Cons: No Tripod Ring
Other Comments: At this price and being an L series lens the tripod ring should have come in the box and certainly not have been $200.00. Any one who buys this lens is obviously a Canon loyal devotee and deserves better treatment. Aside from this the lens offers increased closeup pix without having to always lug a tripod.

5 out of 5 stars   great color detail sharpness
By brambo76 (Boston, MA) May 11, 2010
Review submitted for Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM Lens (CN10028ISL)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Durable, Nice Bokeh, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Consistent Output, Rugged, Strong Construction
Cons:
Other Comments: this is great versatile lens for portrait, macro, and anything you throw at it. AF is fast and accurate. IS really helps in low light and when your shutter speed is not so great. and.. you get 1:1 macro that lets you get very close to subject. I don't shoot macro a lot, but I do have little children and I'd like to get closer at times.. and this definitely helps with that.
