The Canon EF 100mm f/2.0 USM has a focal length that is considered good for taking portrait shots. As well as letting in plenty of light enabling you to use faster shutter speeds the large f/2 aperture helps you to throw backgrounds out of focus so that you can accentuate your subject.
Canon have priced the EF 100mm f/2.0 USM as a mid priced lens making it attractive to serious hobbyists.
The inclusion of a Ultrasonic Motor (USM) helps to speed up focusing and plays a key role in making the EF 100mm f/2.0 USM a step up from cheaper, entry level lenses.
