Pros: Very high sharpness, excellent blurry, RR 1:1, AF relatively fast (very fast considering it is a macro) but very precise, non-existent distortion, very efficient stabilization, semicircular diaphragm, excellent tropicalization, plastic construction but, I have to say, really great and I must also add light.

Cons: Basically no one but the fact that its sharpness is not greater than that of the 100 macro USM... in short, from an L I expected something more, and even the resistance to flare is not without criticism.

Opinion: I purchased it, after using for ten years the previous 100 USM macros, not so much for the stabilizer but rather for the sharpness that I expected higher than that, however excellent, of the 100 macro USM and from this point of view I must say that I was a little disappointed that, despite being of the highest level, the same is not higher than that of the previous model. On the other hand, however, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the blurry, which I honestly did not expect so high, by the very high efficiency of the stabilizer and by the quality and precision of the circular diaphragm. The tropicalization is then amazing, to the point that although I fell into a river, attached to an EOS 1n, and stayed there for a good half minute, it did not suffer any water infiltration. Lastly, with regard to the construction which, although decidedly plastic, has proved to be truly excellent since on two occasions the lens has fallen to the ground without suffering damage.

Pros: Clarity and extreme optical quality, since f 2.8; stabilized; Tropicalized.

Cons: Slow focus (but it's a Macro)

Opinion: An absolutely fantastic goal, it is of an extreme optical quality: crisp to the far-fetched, with a crazy color rendering. Excellent stabilization, and also thanks to this, and the weight and relatively small footprint, can be used without tripod. Very suitable not only for Macro and Still Life but also for portraits. The only drawback is slow focus, but it's a Macro so it's normal; and the supplied light screen is too long and for this reason not very comfortable (I never use it, and I do not think it is fundamental unless you have strong direct light sources in view). Over-recommended, absolutely!

Pros: Blurred sharpness tropicalized stabilizer weight

Cons: lampshed a little long

Opinion: After testing the sigma 105 macro lens great but af noisy and slow I changed it with this canon 100 L 2.8 macro and fell in love with it. Quite light compact tropicalized silent and precise a lens that gives me a lot of satisfaction. I often use it freehand in the macro and I can take shots of insects without micromosso with its stabilizer and it gives me a beautiful blurry. I use it with a 90d and it gives me a lot of detail. I tried to do portraits as well and find it excellent even though it's a 2.8 I really like. Goal that I definitely recommend

Pros: material quality-stabilizer-sharpness-blurry excellent

Cons: AF not very quick-lack tripod ring

Opinion: excellent lens for macros and still life, but it defends well also for portraits, despite being only f2.8 has the advantage of the very close focus distance and unlike its counterpart f2 (which has 1 meter minimum focus distance) you can make a close-up even to children which is very useful in my opinion. Autofocus isn't as fast as non-macro USM targets, but I think it's normal, still nothing dramatic, stm do worse at speed. I also use it for landscapes on holiday and it has a micro contrast and detail to envy the 70-200. The only drawback is the lack of a tripod ring that is very useful for the macro, especially now that I use it with the rp (very small and light) with adapter and I have to buy it from third parties. It's my staple of the kit I started from, I would only trade it for 85 1.4 is L, but I should give up a lot of things and I would have a lot of doubts about it.

Pros: Material quality, optical quality, versatility

Cons: In my opinion, no one

Opinion: Great lens, used for both macros and portraits. Either way, he's doing great. Even not being a slow born for portraits gives a beautiful Bokeh. Very contrasting and sharp. Comfortable and precise focus. Comfortable focus selector, maybe just the slightly uncomfortable lampshade to remove and put the lens cap back on. Great lens, L series does not disappoint.
