EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM



The EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM is designed to be your go to lens for any type of macro photography. It has a long 100mm focal length allowing you to shoot from a distance and yet create a 1:1 magnification (life-size reproduction). The lens features USM (Ultra-sonic Motor) for quiet focusing, a Hybrid Image Stabilization system and Full-time Manual (FTM) focusing override to complete the package.


Canon's newest "L" series lens is its first mid-telephoto macro lens to include Canon's sophisticated Image Stabilization. With the highest quality optics available, combined with near-silent Ultrasonic focusing and life-size close-up capabilities without an adapter, the EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM is simply unrivalled.

This is the first lens on the market to incorporate Canon's new Hybrid Image Stabilization Technology. Hybrid IS effectively compensates for both angular and shift camera shake during close-up shooting. The lens was developed to expand users' photographing range and allow a wider range of users to easily enjoy macro photography.

      Comments about Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM:

      I think this is a great quality lens. If I would have bought the cheaper Macro lens without the IS I would have regretted it. This IS helps a great deal since it is so hard to hold the camera perfectly still.

      Comments about Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM:

      This lens has blown me away. It is my first IS lens from Canon. I own a 85 1.2L and it is slow to focus and forget about hand hold as it has no IS. This 100 2.8L macro is super sharp, fast auto focus and accurate as well. I don't really like auto focus but with this lens it is a pleasure, because it works. The contrast is great. The color is great. At this point I cannot find anything wrong with this lens. Why Canon does not put an IS in all its lenses and also why they don't make the manual focus feel like this lens does. It is almost like focusing our old film camera lenses with no AF. Great Great Lens!!!

      Great bokeh and picture quality, could benefit with a metal construction rather than plastic but that also increases the weight of the product. All in all great product.
