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.

OK. time for some wide-open shots then? The lens is imo amazingly sharp wideopen (miles ahead the 50s)...

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 ;)

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.
