Newborn Photography. So how small are these babies that you want/need the 100mm macro? ;)

While this lens is spectacular... unless you're wanting super close up of toes/fingers, you might be better served with another lens. I find 100mm quite a bit "long" for indoor, and assuming your newborn photography will take you into many homes of your clients to shoot their little blessings, you might find the focal length too tight for framing. That's just my opinion anyway.

+1

Im mainly buying this for Wedding ring shots + closeup of insects etc. (in my spare time). For newborn photography you're better of getting a portrait lens instead of macro lens.

Have any of you used the 100L to scan film? Particularly 120 but I'd be curious to hear about 35mm results to. These posts, "Why you should digitize your film using a camera instead of a scanner" (external link) and "How to scan your film using a digital camera" (external link) at PetaPixel are quite compelling because of the results acheived. The problem is I can't find anyone else who has done this with the same results to corroborate.

I heard the typical way to do this is use a 50 compact-macro. Both Canon and Zeiss provide such lenses. But I guess the most tricky part will be lighting. That will be a lot of work and investment.

Some more contribute
I found it's hard to control the DOF of a macro, sometimes its too thin.
And focus is quite tricky. Keep learning! Feel free to C&C.

If I buy anything for this process it will be a scanner I think, not another lens. I've seen mention of the 50mm lenses and even a 24-70 with an extension tube.

I am trying to decide whether to get the L version or the non-L. Does anyone here have experience with both? Is there a difference in sharpness/overall IQ? It's for Canon 6D, so I'd especially like to hear about comparisons using 5D MkII or the 6D.

Thanks.
