Currently own the Canon 100 2.8(non IS) and thinking of selling/trading for the 100 2.0 due to need for a little more speed, and not using the macro as much as I thought that I would. Comments from those that have used both would be appreciated. Moving more towards candid/ portraits.

I do not have experience with these lenses. But for the reasons you state, which are, not needing macro, needing more light, and moving to candids, i think it is a great move.

Don't know about your budget, but you could also consider the 135L. Wonderful lens.

I also think it's a great move. I have and love both. For portraits, I always use the f2 version. It's just a better lens for portraits than the macro. My main use for the macro is the IS which I can use in museums and churches. In a pinch, the macro can do really nice portraits, but not like the f2.

And of course, the 135mm f2 is outstanding, but quite expensive.

I've only borrowed the macro once, so I didn't use it much. But I did have the 100/2 for a while. Wonderful lens. I liked it better than 85/1.8 as well and it's the same size factor.

The 135L is a very nice lens. That would require either cash or even a two lens trade. ??
