After buying 70-200 F4 L, now I am looking for a macro. Please advice me which one will be good. Budget? well I can spend about 300 pounds.
I was thinking of EF100 2.8

I highly recommend the Canon 100mm f/2.8 Macro lens! It is very nice! Be sure to get the lens hood with it.

If the 100mm macro by Canon fits your budget, it's a good lens. Most macros are great optically. Canon's macros, although they are more expensive than third party lenses, do not extend out as they focus, which is a nice feature.
But Sigma, Tokina, and Tamron all make excellent macros. I'd let focal length, price, and features and not optics guide on what you get.

The Canon 100mm f/2.8 is my favorite :)
Also many others seem to choose the Canon 100mm f/2.8 macro as you can see here in the -=TOP TEN=- Which macro lens do you use? <-- click to see (http://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthread.php?t=160960)
