Neither, 100L IS macro

I use it all the time. It's spectacular!!

It lets you get personal with your food, makes it interesting...

You won't/can't get images like that from either of those two lenses.

Food is a product, and the ultimate product photography lens is the TS-E 90mm f/2.8.
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses

You got that right!! If you shoot product, this is the only lens you need. It tilts, it shifts and it shoots close ... all in one lens :)

Don't take too many pictures of my food... just appears 85 1.2 could be an overkill and 200m could be a tad too long.
