Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Nice! This is the best lens canon offers, FOR the money. Works very nice on ANY close up situation. Close up portraits are a breeze and the depth of field is easy to control. This lense is perfect for a 1.6 crop camera. You would have to spend 4 times the amount to match the portrait capabilities of this lens. I use this lense many times for special wedding photos. The blur is as nice as my 70-200 2.8 IS and can be used in tight quarters. Little slow on the focus but does it really matter for still shots? It is not a L lense quality, but seems fine. For the money it is a must have. If money is no object then opt for the 85mm f/1.2.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice macro lens I use this lens on Canon XSi. I had to decide between this lens and 100mm macro. Decided to go with this lens based on reviews (recommended this for cropped body cameras). I did not have any macro shooting experience when I got and was a little disappointed when first used it. The reason for my disappointment was slow autofocus. Now when I have some experience I love it. Here are the reasons I find it an excellent lens: 1) When you get used to it autofocus is not a problem. It works very well even when you shoot 1x1. 2) It is very very sharp. 3) Solid build. 4) Not heavy. 5) Nice bokeh. 6) Not cheap but not overpriced. After using it for a while I fall in love with macro photography.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Value This lens is a 3-in-1 Grand Slam value! I have owned and used this lens for approximately 2 years. This excellent prime lens is my work horse providing a near normal field of view for work as a normal lens, while also having a nearly perfect focal length for portraits; and (of course) it is an excellent performer as a macro lens having true 1:1 reproduction capability. Build quality is very nice, with a solid feel. The auto-focusing is fast and spot on while having full-time manual focusing available makes tweaking the final shot a breeze. The fast f/2.8 glass is super sharp allowing me to create impressive images whether enlarged and printed or posted on-line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for close up photography I bought this lense to take close up pictures of flowers and nature. This lense provides excellent pictures of flowers that are clear with a blurred background thus making flowers stand out. However, there is one issue everyone needs to know about this lense and the optional close up 250D or 500D screw on lense. When you are attaching the optional 250D or 500D lense, you have to be extremely careful. The optional close up lense is made of metal, and the camera lense threads are plastic. If you are not careful when screwing on the optional lense, you can strip the plastic threads on the camera lense.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality, cheaper price I bought this lens yesterday for my t5i and I was skeptical at first. I have never bought a macro lens before and I wasn't really sure what to expect. After playing around with it for a while and taking multiple test shots, I started to get a hang of it. The 1:1 shots are incredibly crisp and sharp and I was genuinely surprised at how detailed they were. Normally to get a shot like that I would have had to do some cropping in post, but now I don't have to. The lens also functions well as a regular prime lens too. The autofocus is exceptionally fast, probably the fastest that I own. My only complaint is that sometimes the AF is a little slow if you are up close. What I mean by that, is that the lens zooms in then out, and then steps into focus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Amazing Thought I'd test this as a walk around lens for a car event I had to shoot. My main camera was set up with a tripod so I had this on my 2nd camera which is a 30D. I am completely surprised at the images I was able to capture with only using available light in the showroom. Sharp, fast, great bokeh when I wanted it and light weight. I've never used this lens before other than shooting macro shots so this was a great opportunity to try it in a walk around shooting fashion. I will definitely be using this more, just wish it was compatible with my 5D Mark II.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Sharp I originaly bought this lens for macro work but it turned out that it is just as suitable for portraits. This lens is so sharp and with a little post processing you can enhance the quality just a little further. Since it is a prime lens, its sharper than my L series zoom lens but not by much. The image quality is nothing but excellent and I highly recommend this lens for portraits and macro work. It feels like quality in my hands and there are no loose parts. The focus ring is smooth and the AF is really quiet. It does hunt a little in low light but then again so do most other lenses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic lens This lens is Fantastic. I always admired the little strands of baby's breath which are added to roses but never thought much about. I always thought they were for decorating purposes until I began taking pictures of a rose I received. I couldn't believe my eyes, the baby's breath actually has petals, stamen and pollen. I also began taking pictures of a spring lily I bought, just for taking shots and the inside view is fantastic, a nature lover's dream. This lens is worth the cost and more.
