Cons

fine detail on distant objects disappear at larger apertures

1 agrees

moderate color fringing is a bit noticeable in some situations

1 agrees

focal range can be slightly cramped indoors, but too short to get close outdoors - sits in a bit of an odd middle-ground

The Canon EF 100mm f/2 USM is a standard and medium telephoto lens suitable for low light conditions. It is similar to the Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM in construction and size, but has a longer focal length and a maximum aperture of f/2.0. The longer 100mm focal length makes it well suited to capture subjects at a distance, and the wide aperture enables reliable image quality in low light conditions. A circular aperture is used, allowing the lens to keep a narrow field of view and give backgrounds a natural blur behind the subject. The rear focusing USM autofocuses the lens quickly and quietly without needing to extend the lens itself. This system also enables the use of 58mm filters, which won't be rotated as focus is adjusted.
