yes I bought it on the strength of several magazine articles at the time and I do like it. The autofocus is quite slow but then I rarely use autofocus in macro mode, I don't know how it compares to the other lens'a autofocus as I've never used them.
Of course, if you want a real macro lens try the Canon MP-E 65, manual focus 5:1 lens, an awesome bit of kit but quite difficult to use and the largest macro ratio of any consumer lens going.
Funnily enough, I'm giving a talk and demo on macro photography on Thursday at the camera club.
