A fantastic lens, a must for any budding macro photographer. getting close to the insect is a real challenge under any circumstances but with this lens, WOW does it excel. Excellent optics,sharp and crisp, and pick up a bargin with this site.

Definitely one of my favourite lenses, the 100mm f/2.8 macro lens is fantastic for macro photography. Adding in a set of extension tubes allows you to get even closer to small subject material.
The 100mm lens also serves as a very capable portrait lens, with the maximum aperture of f/2.8 providing a nice bokeh and short depth-of-field.
Definitely recommended if you have a Canon DSLR, and want to try out some macro photography.
