Pros: Great image quality. Nice bokeh. Sharp at F2. Decent build, better than the EF 85F1.8 USM (a bit more metal). Fast and silent AF with FTM. Pretty compact and not so heavy. Quite affordable. Small and popular 58mm filter thread.

Cons: The hood design is a joke, which is a rattling piece of plastic and it's sold separately. Color aberrations (the fringing) are lower than with the EF 85F1.8 USM, which come into play only in some specific lighting situations, but they are still there. Not a big problem (for the price). Doesn't work well for close-ups (MFD=0.9m). Not stabilized.

Opinion: I really like this lens very much. More than its smaller, but slightly (and reasonably) cheaper 85F1.8 "sister". Works beautifully on my EOS 6D. I wish it could focus a bit closer, but there's nothing that an extension tube couldn't fix :). It produces pleasantly sharp and contrasty images with a nice bokeh. Which is a fantastic deal for $500. Recommended!

Pros: Untopse and blurry, image quality, sharpness, purple fringing resistance better than 85mm sibling, autofocus

Cons: Nothing relevant

Opinion: I took this lens almost 8 years ago used, when it was almost impossible to find its reviews as it obscured by the most emblazoned 135L, the 100mm macro or the 85/1.8. After monitoring the online used markets I managed to take it for a ridiculous amount and never bought it was right. The lens is small, light and very manageable (same family of canon gold series 50/1.4, 85/1.8), perfect companion for any trip, as the footprint is null and you will not feel the weight in the backpack. The image quality is surprising, the colors are not too contrasted, nor saturated as the modern goals, but not for this reason the image is "washed", but on the contrary it is very natural, with an incredible sharpness already in TA (of course we do not talk about a macro lens, you will not have the same micro contrast), and with a detachment of the floors that in the amateur field has little to envy to 135L. The most important flaw of its little brother 85mm, the purple fringing, here is very attenuated. I do not want to criticize the absence of the lampshade, as no lens of its band includes it, as far as I know. I didn't even find any difficulty with the torpedo graft. I bought one for a few bucks online and it sticks exactly like other gold series targets. Vote 9

Pros: sharpness, focal length, color, blurred

Cons: paralight not supplied and decidedly uncomfortable as graft

Opinion: Optical recently discontinued. I had the much more popular 85 1.8, but, subsequently, I switched to this 100mm, finding myself much better both as a focal length, especially in portraiture, and as a general character. The 100mm f2 has a very fast and precise maf, a very pleasant blurry one, with a gradual and not at all 'nervous' detachment, a balanced color yield and typically 'canon', quite free from aberrations or purple fringing. I use it with 5dmkIII with great satisfaction. Perhaps, as Patrick1948 writes, it tends to subpore slightly, but I say this only because his observation made me think: nothing, common, relevant. The focal length, size and weight, make it a very discreet optics in the portrait and, I would say, also in the 'stolen' portrait, long enough to allow a fair distance from the subject. It can also be interesting in some landscape detail. A few years ago I also had the 100 L 2.8 macro, an excellent optics, but perhaps too incisive in the genre 'portrait', at least for my personal tastes and that I sold, since the macrophotography has finished interesting me. If you can find any residual specimens or some good used, I highly recommend this lens which, of course, will not disappoint you. Too bad for the dedicated lampshade, which has an impossible graft. For the rest, an optics that has a very similar timbre to the 135 L f2. I would like to assign a 10- (less just for the lampshade ).

Pros: sharpness at TA, autofocus fast enough

Cons: Lens hood

Opinion: Taken used (with 1 year warranty) at a palious price from a store, I immediately saw the excellent quality of the lens, which although dated, gives really good results to TA. Small and unwieldy, it looks like the classic portrait lens, and at this point, even having the 85 f1.8 I wouldn't know which one to use anymore (better to have this spoilt for choice). I use it with 6D canon. The lampshade is to be taken apart, fortunately having the 85 I can use that, but it has a really twisted hooking system, you have to think of certain abstruse things, I do not think they can come spontaneously... to conclude, highly recommended!

Pros: Spectacular quality-price, very sharp photos, excellent AF even if old

Cons: Nothing lens hood

Opinion: Target bought on the market at 270 EUR and delighted to have taken it! The photos come really well. I have yet to improve the technique with this because I often get one side of the face brighter than the other outdoors but for the rest is the maximum. To start doing portraiture is a perfect springboard. Luckily I found it already equipped with lens hood.
