The old 100 macro

The older 100/2.8 macro (non L) is a very good lens too. Compared to
the newer L-lens, it’s a good deal smaller and lighter, and a lot cheaper.
I was talking to a couple of botanist friends with the new 100L and neither
seemed overwhelmed by the improvement compared to the older lens,
they did comment on the size of it though.
FWIW
