Thanks to Pixel Bokeh Productions for their review of Canons 100mm L series Macro Lens.
The Canon L series macro with its outstanding L series glass and IS (Image Stabiliser) is a dream come true. When using the 100mm for macro you will probably have it on a tripod and hence not use the IS feature however when using the lens for everyday photography or portrait photography the IS feature comes into its own.
If this macro lens is out of your budget then consider the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM Lens or Canon EF-S 60mm Macro lens.
The Canon EF 100mm 2.8 L Macro IS USM Lens is Canon newest macro lens and it is getting a lot of great feedback. Perfect for macro with Image Stabilisation and a near silent USM. The new IS caters for both angular and shift camera shake. We urge you to invest into a higher end filter when buying the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM Lens.
