The Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM is looked upon as something of a dual purpose lens. To start with its 100mm focal length makes it a good option for portrait photography, especially when using a full framed Digital SLR. Then you also have its macro capabilities for when you want to indulge in some close up work.
With an 8 blade circular aperture the EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM suggests a clear step up from entry level lenses. The ultrasonic motor (USM) ensures faster focusing. The EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM also has a filter diameter of 58mm for when you want to attach filters to the lens.
