I just got this lens a couple of days ago (the L), and I'm just blown away. I'm used to there being a noticeable change when I click the "Enable Lens Profile Corrections" box in Photoshop, and with this lens... nothing.

Great to know you got the L but the thread's not for the L. ;)

Ah, I was a bit confused. I saw the thread title, but then I saw a few people had been throwing 100mm L shots in here too, and thought it had just become a combined thread. Oops.

I got inspired to go play with bugs. This is my 100mm 2.8 macro, a 5D2 and a 580exII. I made a snoot with tube and a bowl to difuse light. I need to make a better version of the snoot- I did not line it to throw light. I plan on putting foil in it to bounce the light more. Also, I need to play with on crop 7D for the reach.

Close-up of a flower bud on a "Lantana" plant. I stacked the lens on top of two extenders, a 12 and a 25. This is a crop from the original picture showing approximately 25% of the original. Camera was a 40d.

I hope that's with extension tubes or that is a very big moth :p.
No extension tubes were used for this shot.
What size is the moth? I know that some of the tropical moths grow larger, but then I suppose an elephant hawk moth we get here is pretty big (although I'm yet to see one, let alone try to photograph one.

We have some Chive plants in our front yard, and with a very late spring, they are just blooming. Bees love them. i do not have the patience to make a complex macro setup, I just walk up and shoot away. The 100mm l is not really any sharper, but its easier for a person like me to get reasonably sharp hand held photos.

All of these are cropped to near 100%.





Scale...I've been debating whether or not to upgrade to the 100L, but I've read over and over again that it isn't any sharper...just like you said. So the only advantage besides build Q is the IS, but don't you shoot handheld at 1/100 and faster when doing this type of macro? (the walk up and shoot away kind- which is also my preference)
