I prefered 100mm because 85 would be to close as a focal lenght to my 50mm 1.4 ;)

I'm starting to think that "100mm f2 club" is a private one. Only 4 pages on this thread ? :D

Imo the 100/2 is an fantastic lens... but it has it´s flaws... it doenst handle shooting towards the sun very well...

BUT imo it´s an great lens.

Flare is another of it´s really weak spots... AND THIS IS with an hood attached.

I was thinking... sure it´s great with an archive with good pics... here´s some bad ones for balance! :)

Hihi, true :lol:
This thread should be protected with another user name and password, where the user name should be the serial number of the lens :lol:

It is a very fine lens, but so are the 85/1.8 and the 135/2.
Choose based on focal length you want.
Here are some with the 100 f/2, all taken with an XT/350D.
By the way, I think it makes an excellent landscape lens.

f/2.5

One from yesterday. At 100% some purple fringing is visible around the swans head and nech, but it is normal for a lens with f2 ;)

Cedar and honeysuckle

So far I'd say it's easily on par with my ex 85 1.8 but slightly better build and maybe less CA wide open.

Straight off the camera, with the exception of a bit of resizing.
