    Re: OMG finally a 100mm L macro

    its a difference lens, the fact that it has a red rubber band means the use of special optical elements (UD glass in this case). it also now features nine aperture blades for "improved bokeh".

    for the photographer it is now important to know if you take a light spot at small aperture you will now get an 18-point star ;!)

    Re: OMG finally a 100mm L macro

    what's the price? Hope this is really good. Can act as portrait lens as it is a L. Why they don't up the class of the F to 2.0? I wonder..... because of F135L?

    IS on a macro lens? Isn't that for wimps who don't use tripods, unlike real macrophotographers?

    Re: OMG finally a 100mm L macro

    oh i forgot... real macrophotographers also take the trouble and time to turn nature into proper studios with reflectors and strobes while the insect/spider/reptile has its make-up done before the actual shoot....

    so far have not seen a macro lens faster than /2.5, your 135/2L is not a macro lens. in any case, 100mm is a bit long for portrait, certainly way too long when used on a 1.6x body.

    I got do area cleaning before shooting, does that make me a "real macrophotographer"?

    actually, what does all the canon rumors now all originates from Chinese websites?

    But it looks good to me. Anyone want to guess the price?

    That would make you so happy, I think. Imagine shooting insects at that range. Something that replaces your 180mm tamron.

    yup, a longer than 180mm macro range is welcome, especially with IS

    Canon gone official with the new 7D but still with a 1.6x crop .

    Some canon first features make the 7D look like a guinea pig model for future bodies
