Pros: Sharpness, colors, AF speed, excellent stabilization

Cons: Nothing

Opinion: After having had two specimens of the excellent canon 100mm macro usm (bought the first and subsequently sold for momentary little use, I then felt the lack and bought the second, then also sold in search of something different), I wanted to try the L and IS version of Canon that did nothing but confirm what good has been said about this lens. I often use it for portraits, an area in which the stabilizer gives a good help, but unlike what I thought even in macro applications, thanks to the hybrid stabilizer (so defined by Canon) it manages to make a good contribution during freehand shots. Plastic construction but resistant and reactive and very precise autofocus. The only one is the prohibitive cost for the original collar of the tripod, otherwise a must.

Pros: Construction, AF, hybrid stabilization, colors, contrast, blurry, sharpness

Cons: It's "just" 2.8, just to write something

Opinion: A lens that is of the same dough as the 70-200 more, however, has white and lively whites, then it is fast, engraved, excellent blurred, indeed, sensational, moderately light. Hybrid IS is a boon as it also compensates for forward-backward micro movements. Macro I do not do, I use it for some freehand close-up, portrait and low light situations. You can clearly see that it is made on purpose! In these fields excels, I replaced the 70-200 F2.8 IS II with the F4 IS version and this 100L, so as to gain in ductility and ... Even in weight, I no longer have a brick in my backpack that often made me leave it at home. Using it on the 5D III the AF is a sniper, I use it only in AF-C, even during theatrical performances of aerial fabrics, it is not wrong. Who finds it slow and noisy or has a broken lens or has a camera body that does not move it properly. For portraits it is great, the blurred is very sweet, despite being defined it is not nervous even in the most difficult situations, the light points always perfect, I prefer it to the 100 F2 which was too soft on the whole figures. In addition, the stabilizer also serves there, at 1/125 to me begins to shake my hand too much with the focal ones, so it is a valid help. A lens that takes "live" photos, to be used and cared for with great care!

Pros: Having taken it only now

Cons: Not having taken it before

Opinion: I am shocked. Really shocked. It's the first L series I buy, despite having already used others over the years, but this one... this is of another level. Taken at a great "used" price, also thanks to the desire of my partner to do macro. I eternal undecided between the 100mm f2.0 and the 135mm L in the end I took the 100mm L... well, I would say a great compromise!! Speaking of the lens there is at the same time little and much to say. The construction I find excellent, the weight all in all contained (weighs practically as much as my pentacon 135mm f2.8), the triple distance selector is a real godsend, the autofocus even in full I find it very fast and very quiet. The hood is a cannon, perhaps a little too long, but it does its job and, it may seem like, but mounting and disassembling it is a unique satisfaction from how fluid it is. The stabilizer does an excellent job on "normal" photos, while for freehand macros the problem is not so much the micro shake, as the very shallow depth of field and there is no stabilizer that helps, but it is still great for macros. From TA to f11 my specimen is a real blade, after that it starts to lose something, but from then on it is not the fault of the glass, but of the physics. Used on both 5d mk ii and 7d mk ii, so far it has never disappointed me. Also tried for portraits and churns out a blurry that I love madly and the detail is obviously macro. Sometimes it exalts you, sometimes you would like something softer (especially at TA), but I already knew it before buying it. Ultimately a fantastic goal, which if taken used at the right price is a real must-have. If I have to find a flaw for the use I make of it (amateur) is the lack of the tripod ring

Pros: Exorbitant sharpness, excellent stabilization

Cons: Plastic construction and general sense of "fragility", not up to the L Series brothers

Opinion: In one word: spectacular!!! I used it on both APS-C (Canon 7D mark II) and FF (Canon 5D mark IV) and I used it in the fields of Macrophotography and Portraiture (when I was looking for sharpness and engraving in faces). Blurry beautiful and soft, never nervous. AF quite fast and extremely accurate. The construction with the massive use of plastics makes it different from the classic L Series that give a greater sense of robustness. I consider it a very valid ally in the areas described above, a lens that cannot be missing. I separate myself from it since I no longer devote myself to the photographic genres mentioned but I highly recommend it.

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.
