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.

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.

First class sharpness
By Les D
About Me Hobbyist/Enthusiast
Sharpness at the extreme
Having struggled along with some old lenses, and got some decent results, I finally had the money to get this one, now one of my prized possesions!Great apeture, so much faster than anything I've used before. The auto focus is really very good - 3 stage (distant, close and full range), and with the added option of manual over-riding with the focus ring really helps. Solid and well made, with very nice optics, and to top it all a very reasonable price! Thanks to Wex I can now up the level of my macros... those in my Camera Club won't know what's hit them!! (OK, I might be hoping a little bit too much there) Buy one, you wont regret it!

Great multipurpose lens
About Me Casual user
My comment about the slow focus reflects my lack of experience in using the three focus settings - a bit different to other lenses.
By The artist
Bought this for macro use, and it is a quality lens as you would expect from Canon, also finding it good for portrait too, I can't find any faults with this lens but saying that I am an amateur in photography although the quality of this lens will up your standards to get those professional results
So glad I payed the extra for the L series. Well built solid lens. Fantastic macro lens.
I must be honest and say this item was bought as a gift for my more than enthusiastic photographer wife. The service I received from Wex was second to none and from what I have seen and felt of the product so far it will not let her down.
Doesn't get much better
By David S
If I'm taking a day at a gardens then there really is no other choice, I have had to buy a second copy just to stop the wife stealing mine. Very nice to use especially on the 5DmkIII - I have also used it on 7DmkI, 1DmkIV as well as the 1DX and the results are always the same - perfect.
