L1) CANON 100MM F/2.8 MACRO USM EF
From the Manufacturer
Bring small things into full-sized view with the Canon EF 100mm macro USM lens.

The lens offers such features as a three-group floating system for exceptional close-up performance; a secondary diaphragm that blocks stray light at f/2.8, which increases contrast when shooting wide open; a ultra-sonic monitor (USM) that provides outstanding autofocusing speed at all focusing distances; a wide manual focusing ring with smooth action; and full-time manual focus even in AF mode. The first lens in its class to feature inner focusing, the lens carries a one-year warranty.

I already own a Canon EF 50mm f/2.5 Compact Macro Lens that I use on my Canon EOS 7D Digital SLR Camera and have been happy with the overall results but I was looking for something more versatile than the 50mm Macro. The Canon 100mm f2.8 Macro Lens came to the rescue. It can be used for very tight and vivid close-up shots. Almost to the point of insanity, it can get super clear shots of insect eyes and butterfly proboscis with incredible detail. But you can pick it up, adjust the focus and get a clean portrait shot with little to no effort. I wouldn't call it an all around lens, but you could easily spend a day walking about in nature without needing to change lenses and still get a fantastic variety of shots.
There are some issues with the lens. It requires a great deal of light, even in well lit situations. The f2.8 is great, but it will not solve lighting issues. I purchased an NEEWER® 160 LED CN-160 Dimmable Ultra High Power Panel Digital Camera / Camcorder Video Light, a Canon MR-14EX Macro Ring Lite and a NEEWER® Macro Ring LED Light to work with this lens's lighting requirements. They have each worked adequately but each has its uses and drawbacks. The lens's coloring with these macro lights leaves a bit to be desired, but some of the lights have filters to deal with this, but I like Adobe CS6 Photshop as my primary color compensator and photo corrector. The RAW from the Canon EOS 7D has been fantastic and the Hoodman RAW 16GB Compact Flash Cards have worked seamlessly with the camera and lens.
Very good macro and also takes great portraits, great versatility
The USM is very fast if you use Auto Focus
The lens is not very heavy
The pricing is reasonable for such a good lens
Works well with macro lighting options
Needs a great deal of light to take fast shutter speed and low ISO exposures
Takes patience to get focus on super close-ups
USM is a bit noisy
The Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L IS USM Macro Lens series is about $500 more than this lens and I have heard great things about the L series 100mm Macro, especially the Image Stabilization. If money is not an issue, I believe that the L series may be a better choice than the Canon 100mm. But for photographers that want great performance on a reasonable budget, I would highly recommend the Canon 100mm f2.8 Macro lens because it simply exceeded all of my expectations.
1. Sharpness 2. Weight 3.Size. The sharpness is unbeatable 10/10, The weight is just right for use without a monopod, and the size is perfect, I don't like standing out if I go to a event and want some pics. I would suggest you get a hood for this. Another strong point of this lens is the bokeh which looks great in my portraits. The next lenses I like are $1500 and above so you can't beat this price for the quality. Attached is one of my portraits.

that "macro look" that makes you say "Oooh, Ahhh"
I had to boost in-camera settings quite a bit to get the contrast and color that I wanted. I gave those attributes 3/5 stars but that feels somewhat generous. I will admit however, that I am still getting to know this lens and it is a little tricky, especially if you have not done much macro photography. Don't expect to rely on the auto focus to catch those scurrying ants and bees, that requires instinct and practice. Also, I found the lens to be somewhat heavy and could stress my wrist after a long time with it. Ideally for those unique macro shots it could be a shorter/more compact shape but that is a minor complaint. Lots of lens flare/ glaring.
Why I got it: There are a few other good Canon options out there for macro, but this lens is the one that will cross you over into wonderful portraits as well. Likewise, you can point it at a pair of jeans and be amazed by the fibers you will see, or point it at a red ant and look at the tiny hairs on its head. It was easy to use the lens handheld for bugs and flowers (even in overcast lighting). I do not regret this purchase at all. I really wanted the Canon 65mm Macro lens, but I feel that for the price, this lens will curb my need for macro for the time being. I still want a ring flash for the end of it, and I purchased a very cheap tulip lens cover for it. I'm a photographer on a budget. I think you will find that you can really push this lens to capture the crispness and detail that you are looking for.
Sum up: You wont regret this lens if you are looking to delve into the world of macro and enjoy some wonderful portrait work as well. Best if you have some sort of editing program (like photoshop) to boost up the colors and contrast.
