Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Macro For Serious Photographers I've been using this lens for over a year now, as a replacement for the 100mm macro, because I wanted more precise images and a greater reach. It does that beautifully. The results are outstanding but one must never forget that this is a rather long lens. You will need a tripod for best results. It's sometimes difficult to find the subject (say an insect) because the angle is small (it goes with the focal length after all). The lens will sometimes search annoyingly for focus, but when it focuses, it's dead on, even with the 1.4x multiplier that I use often for greater reach. BTW, it's also a beautiful telephoto, more precise than any L-glass zoom I've used.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Did Somebody Say Bokeh? I still hold firm that amongst all of the other L lenses and sharp primes I've owned, this is the sharpest lens I've ever used. The image quality is incredible and the background blur this lens gives pictures is second to none. Sure the focusing is a bit slow, but if you use the focus limiter it becomes bearable rather quickly. Even then, don't expect to pan on anything as it generally won't keep up. That said, if your subject is small and you are unable to get too close, this lens is PERFECT for the job.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Only if you need the longer focal length The biggest complaint is the distinct lateral color (yellow/blue fringes at edges of objects), and that the focus goes past infinity, which seems to be standard sloppy manufacture with AF lenses. That German 100/2.0-ZE makro (cannot use name, but the informed reader will know) has no lateral color at all. The lateral color is easily visible on a 20 MP 5D2, is more pronounced on 50 MP 5DsR. If you don't need the longer focal length, rather do not use this lens for better image quality. But if you need a longer range macro, this is getting the shot, but will require more post-processing. Lens collar is helpful to balance rigs on tripod. The bayonet of plastic hood does not easily connect to lens and has odd friction. Locking metal bayonet would have been by far superior. I am surprised the plastic hasn't cracked yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EF 180 Macro Heavy and the auto focus does not work well with macro in low light-USE THE MANUAL FOCUS! This lens takes beautiful pictures and will get a lot of use. The macro photos are really something else with this lens and it doubles as a telephoto lens. Either way, the photos are incredible. It is a little pricey, but the quality makes it worthwhile. If you want IS and to take hand held shots get another lens. A monopod comes in handy, if fact, you may consider a tripod that has a removable monopod. Once again, fantastic photos!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for what it was designed for This is a great macro lens, and can even be used as a telephoto in some cases. The build quality is well within what I expect from L series lenses. This IS NOT a AF lens. The MF is great but extremely precise (if not some times picky). The 3.5 is a decent plane but at macro is finer than even some 1.2 lenses. Telephoto can be used if tripod mounted and the 3.5 gives good depth of field at distance. A great macro (and occasionally telephoto) lens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Macro Lense This is my first Macro lense, and I want to add a positive review. This is not a lense for point and shooters. This lense is for anyone who wants flexibility with a macro lense. I researched all the macro lenses Canon offered and a few other brands. Once I tried this lense I was hooked. You are not going to totally microscopic but you can zoom in on a target from a distance without disturbing them and receive outstanding results.. It is important to at least use a monopod but a tripod works better and with a shutter release or the shutter timer. I have used it for hand held for distance shots and the results were amazaing for a macro. With good light conditions it is a great hand held. The colors are sharper than any of my other L lenses. You can get action to a point but this lense is not designed for that. Overall I am very impressed and pleased with this lense. I only wish the butterflys would keep still a little longer. Anyone who wants macro with some flexibiltiy should be well pleased with this lense. Your exposures are going to be the sharpest ever!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best macro lens ever Stunning clarity and detail. I can't say it enough - the detail is simply staggering. Super sharp! It will exceed your expectations. Bokeh is mind bendingly creamy. Simply put, the finest macro lens I have ever had the chance to work with and almost the best lens I have ever worked with (and I've shot everything from 35mm to 4x5). Do yourself a favor and invest in this lens. Prepare to be blown away!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best macro ever Exceptional lens. Image quality is spectacular. Bokeh is amazing. I am consistenly blown away by the results this gives. One of the finest SLR lenses I have used in 25+ years. Worth its weight in gold.
