Rated 5 out of 5 by from An exceptional lens, This really is a fine lens. It's quality is outstanding. Even at f/2 the main subject is sharp and contrasty. The usm drive is quiet and fast. It produces photos, in my opinion, nearly as good as the 135mm f/2, at 40% of the price. I can say that because I've owned both lens. Where it doeslag, as with the 85mm f/1.8, is build quality. It may preform like a L lens, but it isn't built like one. Today, with most of using digitals with ap-s size sensors,the small 85mm is often the preffed choice. But the 100mm, although never as popular, is a great lens. Perhaps one of the best portrait lens you can own.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Surprising lens! Despite its age, that's still an amazing lens. Unfortunately, it lacks the stabilizer and the AF is not up to the best Canon lenses, but other than that, this lens is just great. Distortion is negligible, vignetting is very well controlled and sharpness is very good throughout the whole frame even at f/2. Bokeh is nice even stopping down. Build quality is good and the quite large MF ring is very helpful if you use the lens with a follow focus. In my opinion, the only reason to spend more money for the 135/2 is the addictional focal lenght and the "L" built quality. Other than that, you won't miss anything with the 100/2. I really hope for a new IS version with the same optical quality...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly Under-rated Lens This is the only non-L lens in my kit. It is often overlooked because of Canon's other 100mm offerings and some say that the 2.8L IS macro makes this lens redundant. If you shoot macro and want something that doubles as a portrait lens, then by all means go for the 2.8L IS. If you want a great portrait lens at 100, this is better wide open than the macro. For me, 100 mm is the perfect focal length for portraits on full frame. This lens is super sharp, has practically no distortion, and focuses lightning fast even though it is one of the older lenses in Canon's lineup. Creamy bokeh, and the lens looks unobtrusive and doesn't scream "expensive". Although it is not an L lens, it is very solidly built and even has a metal filter thread.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Portrait Lens! I recieved this lens for Christmas, hoping for a great portrait lens. And I got just that! This lens is amazing for portraits! The Bokeh is soo buttery! The colour and contrast are right on, and the sharpness is like a razor! Great great lens! The only con is, I wish it had image stabilizer. You either need UBER steady hands, or a tripod. This lens is not ment to go out to a party and get candid shots. But if you're serious about getting a better feel for portrait photography, this is a great starting point! You will not be dissapointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lens !! I bought this lens not knowing what to expect. It was my first prime lens which I got myself and for some reason, I picked this 100mm over the nifty fifty. When I finally received it, it was a really good lens. But when I kept using it over the months, I realized that this was a great lens. I prefer it to the 50mm f/1.8 II. I love taking portraits with this lens, especially of my dogs. I have taken many great photos with this lens and now, I use it more than any other lens that I own. It is the main lens on my camera.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the great lenses This lens is very well built, it may not be fully sealed but in my opinion that's the only thing stopping this having a red ring. The lens does not move either the front or rear element for focussing which means it is naturally reluctant to attract moisture or dust internally. The proper ring-USM focuses nearly immediately, it's frighteningly sharp even wide open, the Boke and low light ability is lovely thanks to its wide aperture. What would I change? IS is obvious by its absence, but that would bump up the price and frankly is unnecessary given its wide aperture. I would probably change the aperture blades by adding one as this currently has an even number and that means half as many spikes on sunstars when stopped down... that's it. As anyone can see I'm scraping the bottom of the barrel to find anything wrong with this lens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One prime and shoot heads, look here... If you can only buy one prime and shoot a lot of heads the EF 100 2L USM is the one to buy! Oh sure the EF 135 2L USM may be a bit sharper on film or high-end FF EOS 1Ds XX body and it is a lot more sexy than the more pedestrian EF 100 2 USM. But what the EF 2 USM lacks in sexy it gives back in real world image quality, much lighter weight and saves you enough money to buy another good prime. This is another workhorse lens that splits the range between the EF 85 1.8USM and EF 135 2L USM and because of it is less narrowly defined in what you can do with it. Depending on your EOS sensor format it can be used for a lot of different subjects and can produce very fine images if you do your part. A bit more money for some reason than the shorter faster EF 85 1.8USM but has the extra reach you may need or want on a smaller format chip EOS body. Similar build to the EF 85 1.8USM which is to say solid feeling with fast and quiet focusing. Another excellent image and value lens IMO.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent mid-range prime This is an amazing and affordable mid-range prime lens. Often over shadowed by the 85 f1.8, the 100 provides a little more reach for those of us that don't like to be too close. The bokeh is smooth, the images sharp. The focus is acceptable, however, does hunt in low lighting, despite the f2. I have "L" lenses, and I can honestly say, this is one of Canon's non "L" that feels, shots and performs like it deserves the red strip. Excellent lens.
