I need an advice from you guys, who already own this amazing lens.

I was wondering if I can use this lens to cover family events? like weddings, christenings, quinceaneras, etc..

I've been reading a lot and I'm in love with this lens, but most of the examples are macros shots, so I want to know how works with portraits and with low lights.

At the end of this month I will have my first Christening and I need an advice. Will be good to use this lens for this kind of event ?

(I will appreciate it if you can post some weddings or portraits shots using this lens) :)

Thanks in advance,

Personally I wouldn't want this lens for family events due to two reasons - 1) it isn't particularly fast and 2) It's kinda slow in focusing.

85 1.8 is a much better choice and more balance.

You are better off upgrading your 28-135mm imo.

@reyces

I would go with the Canon 60mm Macro. As good IQ, wider and much smaller and easier to handle. Both the 100 and the 60 are 1:1 magnification. The big difference is you don't have to be as close to achieve it with the 100 which is important if your shooting something like bugs.

This picture is amazing. I'm really inspired when viewing all the pictures that the camera can achieve with this lens. Your photos on Flickr are awesome, too.

I shouldn't have looked through this thread. Now I'm considering this lens over the 135L. Decisions decisions.
