Just upgraded to this lens after 12 years of using the basic EF 100 macro. Reason was, I have been going out in the field for more hand-held shots, and was appreciating the IS would be an advantage. First couple of results...

Excellent shots, especially the first!

Recently I've been trying natural light macro too. It is not easy, especially when there is a bit of a breeze. Often the sun is in the wrong place, and it is easy to block the light in tighter macros. But sometimes the results are very nice.

I agree the IS is useful.

You need the subject, lighting and technique.

It's a fabulous lens, not just for macro.

A tiny moth that looks like a bit of straw from a slight distance. I've been told it is a Diamondback Moth.
