About Me Pro Photographer
This is a pretty decent lens for the money. I wasn't sure how much I'd use it so price was important to me. So far so good. Easy to use, lightweight, sharp.I'd recommend it to anyone who doesn't want to break the bank but wants a good macro lens.

The Canon Gods have finally listened: SURPRISE: the lens hood and case were included!! Superb lens for MACRO, very sharp/detailed. Some lens creep at max performance, I used AF, then MF. Great PRIME lens, versitile, easy to use.
Good Purchase Decision

Bought the lens for macro photography -works just great. Also used it for outdoor and a sporting event. Am very happy with the all around performance - this lens stays in the gear bag and now goes everywhere th camera goes.

Extremely Good Performance for its price
The focus length is quite restrictive, especially on 1.6 crop camera. With this in mind, its optical quality like color and resolution, and focusing speed, is extremely good. It is several levels higher than the 18-55 kit lens, and other cheap lens, like Tamron 70-300 macro.please understand I am still using these two good and affordable lenses. I just use 100mm Macro as my reference lens for optical quality, for its intended purpose such as flowers and insect, and for kids sports and casual play, where I have time and control of distance.
excellent lens [...]
from baltimore, maryland
I mainly use this for macro shots, and it really delivers. The lack of IS to me is not much of an issue. Worth every penny.
