I LOVE this lens! Excellent for macro as well as portraits! I highly recommend this lens, expecially for newbies or amateur macro photographers. Easy to use with AMAZING results! Add a teleconverter and some extension tubes and you can get super duper macro!

I bought this lens so i could have the best Macro lens, especialy for photographing objects at home, like my camera collection. I did already have the Sigma 105 f2.8 Macro, which is a very good lens, but I find this one is slightly beter, and I was able to sell the Sigma for a good price on ebay. Having moved to a 5D I find you really do need to use the best lenses out there to make it worthwhile - the 5D shows up problems more than the cropped censor.

I am delighted with this lens and I would easily give it a 9 out of 10. It is certainly as sharp as some, perhaps most, of my L lenses. It is solid and well built and the AF (which i don't use that much) is very fast. It costs nearly as uch as an L lens and a lot more than the Sigma but I think it is worth it for a top quality macro.

This is the lens I leave on my camera for general purpose use. At non-macro focus distances, it is a very fast lens in a convenient short-telephoto length. The images are sharp out to the corners. This is one of those great Canon lenses that probably deserves an L-series rating but is available without the red stripe and exorbitant cost.

Tested in an astrophotography context (point sources on black backgrounds - excellent for revealing aberration and coma), I have found that this lens is reasonably sharp at f/4 and completely sharp by f/5.6. For daylight terrestrial photography, the tiny aberrations caused by the wide-open f/2.8 aperture are hardy noticeable and by f/4 the images are exquisitely sharp.

There is a lot of glass in this lens - it is heavy. I highly recommend buying the tripod collar as it allows you to attach the camera and lens to a tripod or ballhead with much better balance.

Also, if you plan on using the macro functionality, keep in mind that the effective f-stop of the lens goes way up when you're focusing at very close range. At 15cm from the front surface, it performs as though it were an f/9. You'll either want a lot of light or a very steady subject and a good tripod (another reason to buy the hideously overpriced tripod collar).
