Rated 4 out of 5 by diamohds402 VERY NICE LENS THAT SOMETIMES HUNTS FOR FOCUS
I currently have this lens on the easy pay option with two more payments to go. I am glad I got it when I did because I can see QVC raised the price $200.00 + dollars since I ordered it. I have also noticed the price of all the canon products have went up.
The image quality this lens produces is extremely nice. Not quite L quality but real close. Lens is lightweight but feels to be a sturdy build quality .The only nick on quality is I bought the lens hood (separately from another company) and it rattles when attached to lens. Maybe I got a bad lens hood.
This lens sometimes hunts for focus in AF mode. In manual mode the focus is spot on. The focus issue is why I gave 4 stars out of 5
Rated 5 out of 5 by Melissa_in_Va Awesome!
Im very new to photography. I got my first dslr 10 months ago... a rebel t3. Just upgraded to the 70d. I treated myself also to this lens and Im totally amazed by it! After using nothing but kit lenses for almost a year now this little thing has shown me what a good photo really looks like! Crisp pictures and so easy! Very happy with this lens!
Rated 5 out of 5 by ffbvfd satisfied with purchase
I am very satisfied with this lens, It is everything I read about and more. The only drawback is it does not have the image stabilization feature. other than that it is a great Macro lens, and I would recommend purchasing it if you are looking for a good Macro lens.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stovetop Excellent lens
This is a great macro and walk around lens. Very crisp and clear pictures. It has very quick auto focus and is extremely easy to handle. I bought this lens to go with my T3i.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Macrofan Great Photos
I bought this in May and it's my first macro lens. I use it almost all the time and it has given me some great photos.
Rated 5 out of 5 by San Jose Photo Nut Great lens for DSLR cameras.
Bought this lens even though saving up for another one and I'm glad I did. Took a macro class to try the lens out and have some great photos. If your on the fence about this lens, get it, you won't be sorry, worth every penny!

Thought I'd test this as a walk around lens for a car event I had to shoot. My main camera was set up with a tripod so I had this on my 2nd camera which is a 30D. I am completely surprised at the images I was able to capture with only using available light in the showroom. Sharp, fast, great bokeh when I wanted it and light weight. I've never used this lens before other than shooting macro shots so this was a great opportunity to try it in a walk around shooting fashion. I will definitely be using this more, just wish it was compatible with my 5D Mark II.
Rated 5 out of 5 by daultoninw High quality, cheaper price
I bought this lens yesterday for my t5i and I was skeptical at first. I have never bought a macro lens before and I wasn't really sure what to expect. After playing around with it for a while and taking multiple test shots, I started to get a hang of it. The 1:1 shots are incredibly crisp and sharp and I was genuinely surprised at how detailed they were. Normally to get a shot like that I would have had to do some cropping in post, but now I don't have to. The lens also functions well as a regular prime lens too. The autofocus is exceptionally fast, probably the fastest that I own. My only complaint is that sometimes the AF is a little slow if you are up close. What I mean by that, is that the lens zooms in then out, and then steps into focus.
