This is a nice, sharp lens. But without IS, it's really pretty hard to take a decent macro shot hand held in anything but the brightest light. The bottom line is that even though the Canon 100mm USM IS is 2.5 times more, it is so much sharper (even though the EF-S 60mm isn't too bad) and, more importantly, you can take a macro photo in the field hand held. So, even though it is not an apples-to-apples comparison, the question comes down to whether your intend to shoot with a macro lens hand held or on a tripod. If you don't mind using a tripod all of the time, then this lens if just fine (and very affordable). But if you plan on taking hand held macro shots, this lens will disappoint and you will spend the extra money to get an IS macro.....

I love macro photography and this is the only lens I can actually use up close without it blurring so right there that is essential. The quality on the other hand, isn't the best in my opinion.. I don't know what it is but I have alot of trouble getting a good crisp image compared to my 2 other lenses. You can view my skull image submissions to see what I'm dealing with. Again, this COULD be me.. Sometimes I do have regrets spending so much money, I don't think it's worth the price.. There are some amazing lenses for 400.00 these days and this is not one of them.

Decent lens, not awful, not great.
