A prime lens with excellent macro capabilities
The EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM has a true macro magnification ratio of 1:1, meaning the object you are photographing in real life is the same size as on your camera sensor. This versatile lens gives great results in portrait work and handheld movie-making, thanks to its ability to achieve a shallow depth of field with beautiful bokeh, along with built-in Hybrid Image Stabilization and lightweight design.

Not very good for portraits or action shots, it has the tendency to focus hunt a little. This is one amazing lens. I wholeheartedly recommend it to one and all. My opinions are my own and my opinion is that this canon macros lens is awesome!
NOTE to Amazon: I received this lens in a box large enough to hold a large microwave and with no packing material, implying that the lens was tossed and bounced around. I returned the lens without even opening it. Thank you for sending a new one. Perhaps you need to check how sensitive equipment is packed. Sucks to receive something and then have to return it.

I could go back and forth between this 100mm Macro and the 70-200mm f/4L IS on which lens is more optically impressive. It makes little sense to compare the two lenses directly since they are designed with different purposes. However, anyone familiar with this macro or the 70-200mm can appreciate that I hold both lenses in similar esteem.
Obviously, as a macro, this lens is designed with the ability to reproduce objects at life size on the camera's image sensor. The lens excels at this task tremendously with regard to optics and handling. Being completely new to macro photography at the time of puchase, my initial thoughts about the hybrid IS system were mixed - Although the system functions as designed, I had to admit that I still found a tripod to be absolutely essential for true macro shots. The manual focus system was rightly given a build standard higher than most lenses. The large size of the focus ring (relative to lens axis) combined with the fine gearing of the focus mechanism makes manual focusing efficient and precise. The auto focus includes a switch that locks out certain focus distances to eliminate unnecessary focus hunting and to improve focus speed (options include full range, 0.3m-0.5m, and 0.5m to infinity). The autofocus speed itself is acceptable but not remarkable (and is USM driven and quiet). However, as this is not a lens designed with action shooting as a priority, I will happily give up some autofocus speed for the gain in precision.
Since my initial impressions were formed, I have adapted reasonably well to the practice of combining the hybrid IS system with my 7D's continuous focus for handheld shots. After learning to use this technique efficiently (which isn't quite as simple as picking settings and going shooting), I am capable of handheld "near macro" (not quite 1:1) shots that I'm not embarassed for others to see. I'd still consider a tripod (or support of some kind) to be essential for true 1:1 macro shooting.
Early on in my ownership (before I established a workable handholding technique) I was telling people to simply buy the non-L/non-IS 100mm Canon macro lens. Since that time, I have changed my advice to "buy the L if you can afford it but you won't regret buying either lens".
