The old EF 100mm f/2.8 macro lens had a superb reputation but Canon managed to keep up the performance of the USM successor despite of the introduction of a true IF design allowing to keep a constant lens length throughout the focus range. Mechanically this is a drastic improvement due to the absence of any moving outer parts that could suck in dust or wear out more easily. On top of that the USM implementation in this lens is excellent – compared to conventional macro lenses in this range it is a speed daemon here and a near silent one. Optically the lens resides on a very high level with little to nothing to be desired. HIGHLY recommended! READ FULL REVIEW
Other Canon 100mm f/2.8 USM macro EF Reviews
Without a doubt, the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro is a superb lens. It’s in a good focal length range for use as a portrait lens, but you may actually want to knock its sharpness down a bit after the fact in Photoshop(tm) to be kinder to your subjects. It may not be for everyone, but if you’re looking for a maximally sharp, high-quality lens in this focal length range, this is about as good as it gets. If you’re into macro photography, this is a superb tool, with the added benefit of a comfortable working range, thanks to its 100mm focal length. READ FULL REVIEW
I love this lens. It does everything well and has no weak points. It’s hard to convey this in writing. This is one of those lenses that works so well, efficiently and effortlessly you wonder why all lenses can’t be this good. READ FULL REVIEW
