Pros: Very sharp lens with great color and contrast, better than many L lenses. Very good bokeh, very low aberrations. 1:1 macro, internal focusing, front elements (as in most EOS lenses) do no rotate, does not change length during focusing.

Cons: Not fast focusing, won't become a sports lens for anyone. The optional lens collar is horrible; an L-bracket is a better option.

Opinion: Best bang-for-the-buck macro available for Canon (i.e the very best value for a macro lens, in case translations don't say it well). Also great for portraits (if f/2.8 is shallow enough for you) and landscapes. The IS model costs twice as much for no extra benefit aside from the IS. If you work from a tripod, this is a great lens to have.

Pros: sharpness, color rendering, internal focus, construction, lightness

Cons: lack of IS (but you know when you buy it), bulky lampshade

Opinion: Bought used after my friend who had lent me another specimen asked me back his. I use it mainly on APS-C (I'm considering buying FF, in which case I would also use it on that, tested on a friend's machine body, fantastic results), for macro photos to insects. For my kind of macro, I rarely use the easel (let's say I do "macro traveling hunting) maybe the IS would have been comfortable, but often the move is given by the movements of the subject or the wind more than my hand, so it's okay so (not to mention that , as someone has already written, IS compensates for up/down/left/right, but not the forward/backward that so many focus issues give to macro photos). The quality of the lens is great, the AF is not lightning (but I think it's more the fault of my old 30D with which I use it), but it quietly does its job. This weekend I also used it for photos during an athletics competition (cloudy weather, then little light, and with the 30D to raise a lot the iso is not talked about) and did not disappoint at all, indeed. In short, I am fully satisfied and recommend it to everyone!

Pros: Sharpness, excellent colors where the best of itself on non-recent sensors, size

Cons: I can't find

Opinion: Bought used with the ambitions to start to macro photography and still life, I always find it in the bag and often attached to the machine. It is a lens that makes you love both in portraits and in other areas like landscape (!): It produces an exhilarating sharpness with really pleasing colors. Attached to non-recent bodies of type 5d old and 1dsii gives more than dignified files. On newer sensors (5DIII and 6dii) it holds the highest density so much that it becomes really difficult to detach it. Moreover, with AF more performant (5DIII), it does not truant too much in the MAF, even in difficult situations. Given the price of the used, I feel strongly recommend it.

Pros: sharpness, blurred, color rendition, Overall yield "vintage".

Cons: Very slow especially in low lights but it is a 2000 lens, it is there.

Opinion: Gorgeous. Even at full aperture gives you exciting, crisp files. I use it almost exclusively for portraits, the detail and sharpness it offers are really great. For portraits maybe even too much, you have to act in post on skin sharpness because it highlights every detail. Very slow with little light, you have to use it after well understood to be able to exploit the best potential. I highly recommend it, with a relatively low expense you can buy a really portentous lens with strong personality. I would not change it with anything, for the use I do.

Pros: Very clear already from F / 2.8, fast autofocus and above all accurate, beautiful bokeh, cheap if taken used

Cons: Good but not excellent construction, shade to be purchased separately

Opinion: A lens to have in the kit in my opinion. It is used at affordable prices and has an incredible quality, very clear already from F / 2.8 has a silent autofocus and very precise, the fuzzy is creamy and the ring of fire is smooth and pleasant to use.rnOne two in the hood are not included (to be purchased separately) and a building is robust, but not excellent
