That's nice to hear. In my worst bouts of GAS, I think about buying this lens. I bought the more expensive non-stabilized 180L macro as "the" macro lens, and this lens has very good bokeh at f/3.5 (I love shooting 1:2 to 1:1 wide open), great contrast and color, and plenty of sharpness. The 180 is a HEAVY lens, though, 1.1 kg, just a shade lighter than my 400 f/5.6L at 1.25 kg. The 180L often doesn't go along in the bag "on spec" due to weight. I am deciding on lenses for the 6D, and have considered the 100 f/2.8L as a dual use macro and general purpose tele lens. Right now my 100ish general tele lens is an inherited manual AIS Nikkor 105 f/2.5 on an adapter, and there's an inherited manual AI Nikkor 55 f/3.5 macro that is next on the list for a test spin.
