From reading here & there on the Internet, I got the impression the EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM is popular with / favored by portrait photographers as well. Then again, it might be subjective, or peculiar to this lens.And macro lenses are generally not so great for portraiture due to being over corrected and produce somewhat clinical look. Even stopped down. All subjective.
