Free Monopod via redemption from Canon The Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM Lens is one of the prestigious L-series of Canon lenses. The lens features Image Stabilisation, the first macro lens in Canon's EOS line up to do so, making it easy for photographers to capture amazing close-up shots without the need for a tripod. The Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM lens is a medium telephoto macro lens and features up to 4-stop correction. Low friction ceramic balls support the moving elements and provide smooth movement, whilst the hybrid IS corrects shift movement and angular movement - a benefit of up to 2 stops at 1.0x magnification. More
The L-series is Canon's flagship professional lens range, representing the best in precision-designed EF optics. L-series lenses combine superior performance with superlative handling, and are resistant to dust and moisture.
Hybrid Image Stabilizer
The new Image Stabilizer designed specifically for inclusion in a macro lens. It is able to correct lens shift movement as well as the angular movement that most IS systems can correct. This provides 2-stops of correction during 1.0x magnification, increasing to 3-stops at 0.5x magnification and 4-stops during normal shooting.
Ultra low dispersion (UD) lens element ensures high image quality
A UD element within the lens design effectively removes chromatic aberration. This allows for excellent image quality with high resolution, high contrast and excellent colour reproduction.
Focus limiter switch
To enhance the photographer’s use of the lens, it is fitted with a 3 position focus limiter switch. With limits for close up subjects, distant subjects and all subjects, the user is able to increase the autofocus speed making quick shots a possibility.
Beautiful background blur with 9 blade circular aperture
A circular blade aperture helps to create attractive, even background bokeh when isolating subjects at wide apertures.
Fast quiet autofocus
The ring USM (Ultrasonic Motor) drives extremely rapid autofocus with near-silent operation. Full time mechanical manual focus override is available without having to switch out of AF. The lens offers a minimum focusing distance of 0.3m.
Below are a few sample images taken by Adam Tacon in the Wex Team.

Very satisfied with this product
from East Yorkshire
Good Macro and some landscape with crisp detail used on a full frame camera
produced images beyond expectation
About Me Getting started
This is my first and to date only lens, purchased after buying a second hand 450D (body only). Quite an expensive lens for a first buy but easy to use and produces superb images.Focus is fast but it will constantly "search" with the slightest movement in Macro so using the Focus range limiter is more of a must if using AutoFocus when shooting handheld.Being a "fixed 100" it is not best for a general walk around but I bought it for Macro and with the image stabilisation it has given me some superb hand held images removing the need for a tripod when you'd normally expect to need one.I am impressed and for my first DSLR it is giving me pictures I am already proud of.

Great macro and portrait Lens
About Me Semi-Professional
I use this lens for macro, portraiture and weddings. As I have found with all Canon L series lenses it performs beautifully to provide sharp consistent images.
First Class Macro Lens
This lens is a delight to use. The results are pin-sharp, with good bokeh (subject to photographer's failings). The lens has renewed my enthusiasm for macro photography.

It's great- read on!

Fabulous lens and especially natural and very revealing for portrait work. Also stunningly sharp with natural colour rendition in macro for plants and insects. Lovely to play with and get artistic, blurred foregrounds and backdrops in landscape mode. Need to be patient with the auto focus. Very pleased I bought this. In constant use along with my Canon 20mm prime.
Bought for close up detail shots in weddings and hands/feet of newborns.

Better than expected.
I was sceptical as to how much better it could be than the 60mm Macro lens from Canon but decide to go for because i already have the 50mm 1.4. So Far i have only been using it for handheld Macro shots and the image quality is outstanding, almost pin sharp so i can't wait to try it on a tripod.It is slow to focus as unless you are pointing directly at what you are shooting it will jump around but its not a big issue.Superb images, great construction and a good looking lens. glad i went all in for it.

Hand held :)
I would recommend this product
By Kev the camera
Focusing can be slow if you expect the lens to go from one extreme to the other of its focus range. Therefore it is better to adjust focus manually to near the focal range you are working at before using auto focus. Then it is quite quickManual focusing is better at the macro distances.

Proved to be my best Lens
from West Sussex
About Me Professional
Now this one lens that I have always wanted. I have found that not only is it a first class telephoto lens, but it is a very useful lens for portrait work. When you don't want to get too close to the subject, give them space. Yes it's expensive but with canon you get a fine lens. It's worth it.Getting it from WEX is good, receiving it the next day. Extremely well packed as you would expect. Please see two images below taken with this lens on my Canon 5D ll.
