The 100mm is perhaps the first telephoto where the difference in image size on film becomes apparent. While there is some perspective compression it's not overpowering. And this could be the reason why a photographer that is used to the "ordinary" view of a 50mm lens, finds it to be very appealing when he/she is to view through the eyepiece with the 100mm focal length for the first time.
However, the depth-of-field of the 100mm lens is substantially less than that of the 50mm lens at the same focusing distance and aperture which contributes to a very pleasing visual when compared with lenses of standard focal lengths.
The 100mm lens provides great versatility, favoured for casual shooting, serious portraiture, sports or commercial work and landscape. Great for isolating a portion of a scene and the slight compression of perspective gives a striking sense of depth to both scenery and landscape pictures.
