Canon EF 180mm f/3.5L Macro USM is a pretty solid lens. Image performance is pretty good, although not necessarily unique among telephoto lenses. The much cheaper Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM can easily match its longer, more expensive brethren in this area.

A lens that is obviously built to last a lifetime of hard work is the way I would describe this optic although the robustness leaves it looking a little chunky. It possibly goes some way to warranting the price, which is high.

    Superb build quality., Good optical quality, Good contrast and colour with no distortion

    A little heavy., Trapped tripod collar (when on camera), Price

This is an expensive high-quality lens that focusses continuously down to 1:1 (i.e., you can take a picture of something that is 24x36mm in size, the dimensions of the standard 35mm frame). The lens has an ultrasonic motor that allows manual focusing even in AF mode.

nice and sharp even on my old Canon 40D which this picture was taken, now when the desert wildflowers bloom in the spring I won't have to get up and down off the ground this is especially hard for me being over 3/4 century old I can even get shots handheld like this one

  • +

    Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh

The biggest complaint is the distinct lateral color (yellow/blue fringes at edges of objects), and that the focus goes past infinity, which seems to be standard sloppy manufacture with AF lenses.

17 June 2015

Extreme good quality and super sharp photos. Only three stars because its extremely heavy and almost unusable for handheld due to no image stabilization

ordered this used replacement ring and it was a perfect replacement. had tried a non-OEM brand that was awful, the geniune Canon works great.

This is a very, very good lens! It is one of the best lenses I ever owned. As a macro lens it produces stunning blurred backgrounds. It is very sharp from corner to corner wide open provided your subject is perfectly flat and parallel to the sensor.

  • +

    Sharp wide open from corner to corner, Stopped down even sharper, lovely bokeh, blurred background, build like a tank, tripod ring included

    Weight, price, (no IS...?)

If you want good quality images, you must invest in good lenses. You won’t go wrong with this lens. The results are worth the effort. I compose my shots to get the effect I want, so, I always focus manually before I auto focus. As a result, the slowness that some complain about doesn’t bother me.

  • +

    The EF 180mm f/3.5L Macro lens captures amazing colors, and is the sharpest lens I have used. I read all the reviews and researched this lens for months while I saved for it. Now that I have it and have used it I can say that this will soon be one of my favorite lenses.

    The lens is large and a bit heavy but what do you expect?
