The 100L doubles as a great portrait lens.  In some settings I like it almost as well as my 135L.

Beautiful! Impressive. :)

thanks.  This lens really shines. All the test shots were handheld.

Can't wait to try real 1:1 shots.  So am looking for Macro flash/ring light and focus rail right now.

Will also try using it for portraits as most have suggested.

Beaut pic's Dukinald. At the moment, I use my 580EX II off camera (with a ETTL cord) to act as a fill flash. I find the fill flash system works a treat when done well. The ability for the camera to handle high speed flash sync automatically (in full sun), while I concentrate on the picture taking, simply stunning :)

I'll progress to the macro flash / RRS macro rails next year :)

I walk the dog, see a flower next to the path, take my camera with the mounted 100L into my hands and I'm sinking  into another world of fantastic colours and forms. I like this lens.

As the summer comes on, the flying ants (termites) are out in force during the evenings. This one was snared by a jumping spider.

Here's another example of the other thing this lens is great for - a wonderful medium telephoto lens that is a fabulous portraits lens.

Awesome explosion of color.  This lens has been in my bag the second longest of my current collection, and won't be going anywhere for the foreseeable future.
