  • Canon EF 100mm f/2 USM

    10 out of 10 points and recommended
    all !

    135 f/2L? Well is not present...

    Hey! Buy better 100mm f/2, or 135mm f/2.8 – economy in 2,5-3 times! And it is even better 100mm f/2.8 macro – and will kill two hares one shot.

    You will often use f/2? When depth of sharpness – centimeter?

    I photograph 100мм f/2. The open diaphragm – 0,01 % of my photos.

    On f/4-f/5.6 all these lenses give similar quality, absolutely!

    Then what for to pay it is more?

    Canon 100mm f/2 USM – a lens of a extra-class! From f/2.8 quality – is magnificent, with 4.0 – is phenomenal!

    The price - yammy-yammy!

    The only thing that can prevent to receive to you qualitative shots – mistakes of an auto focus... Watch it!

    With the camera 400D, with the built in flash, I click this lens from 15-20 meters on ISO400 and with f/4.0 – quality completely arranges me! Canon Speedlight 580EX – bye-bye!

    Today I would buy Canon 100mm f/2.8 to have an opportunity macrophotos, but at all I do not regret about the present lens!

    Pleasant weight in hands... The compact sizes... Fine appearance on a camera... The contrast, detailed pictures... The sense of reliability of a design is supported by black color of a covering...

    Use fixing a mirror for reduction of effect of the greased shots! It is a telephotolens, the image already noticeably shivers!

    Very much, it is very happy with this lens!

    135 f/2L - a lens for photoaesthetes! But if you the photo – 100mm f/2 – a fine choice interests only!
