The 100mm f1.28 IS Macro hasn't gotten much use after I acquired it months ago. But each time I do use it, I am more impressed with it. There is nothing to fault this lens optically, from wide open on, it's just amazingly sharp. The hybrid IS works as advertised. Consequently, I get more keepers from this lens than most others. I find it very versatile lens, not just for macros but as a general purpose lens. Still haven't compared this one with the 100mm f2 USM, but I think the 100mm f2 may have to go, despite the many times that I said I would never sell it. Just finding the time/initiative to do the comparison has been a challenge.
