    I have the non-L version of the 100mm which is reasonably priced for what it is. If 100mm is okay (160mm equiv. on EF-S body is getting rather long!) look out for one of those. Tack-sharp and accurate AF.

    I have one.
    Had little use, pretty much as new. Lives in a case with dessicant.
    Haven't used it for some time as gone onto landscapes now.
    I had the 100mm but the close focus was a minimum of 13" and the wee 60mm lets you get right up into a flower, etc.
    Also have a set of the 3 macro tubes...makes for a wicked combination.
    PM me if interested and we can talk.
    May not answer until tomorrow though.
