The Canon EF 100mm is a medium telephoto lens with a macro feature for 1x magnification. Fluctuations in spherical aberrations caused by focusing are suppressed, and high-quality images are obtained at all focusing distances. With eight aperture blades, good background blur is obtained even when the aperture is decreased by one or two stops. A focusing limiter which limits the magnification to 0.25x greatly assists macro photography. More
Macro with extended reach
The EF 100mm F/2.8 Macro USM is a medium telephoto lens with a macro feature providing a 1.0x magnification. With eight aperture blades, creative background blur is possible to help make the subject stand out. The lens features a focusing limiter switch which limits the focus range to improve AF speed.
Ring USM auto focus with manual override
Canon’s ring USM auto focus system employs ultrasonic frequency vibrations for fast, accurate and virtually silent operation. Full-time manual focus override, via a large ring that does not rotate during auto focus, allows photographers to fine-tune focusing instantly.
Super Spectra coating
Super Spectra coatings help ensure accurate colour balance and high contrast, and suppress flare and ghosting by absorbing light that might be reflected off internal lens elements and image sensor.

I decided I wanted to have a go at Macro Photography. Having read the rave reviews of this lens I thought it was a good place to start. I didn't want to mess around with lens spacers and reversing lenses etc. I had the cash so took the plunge. Boy am I pleased I did. Being new to macro, I have a lot to learn. The attached image is of a flower less than 2" in diameter. (Best viewed full screen). Sure it's not great and I need to do some work on lighting etc. I think it does show what this lens can do, on a 550D, straight out of the box. Even when used by a beginner. I am now waiting for the cold snap to be over when the Bugs come out to play. In the mean time I find myself wondering round the house and garden looking for small objects to photograph. Such is the enthusiasm this lens has generated.If you want to get into Macro, I would highly recommend this lens.

Simply great value for money
By HOVER FLY LOVER
This lens is excellent value for money and fits right into the middle bracket price range. It produces superb results with fast focusing and excellent colour rendition. I have used it to take insect shots/floral and family portrature and have been more than pleased with the quality of pictures produced. Whether the 100mm 2.8 L series macro lens warrants the extra expenditure I cannot say but overall I would not hesitate in recommending this to anyone who wants a good Canon macro lens at a reasonable price.

Seriously good lens
By Blackbird Singing
Used properly as a macro this lens is impressive - the quality of the images that can be obtained will not disappoint. The internal focusing is a particularly nice feature - great to have a lens that does not change shape. Be aware, though, that this lens is a bit heavy and the concentration of its weight at the far end (away from the camera) makes it difficult to balance - even on a bigger DSLR. This, however, is a minor issue for serious macro photographers who will be using a sturdy tripod

I must for your camera kit
I received this lens the next day. I haven't been able to put it down. The first time I looked thru the view finder it was unbelievable! The result even better on screen. Great detail. Right down to the tiny hairs on insects.You can't go wrong with this lens.Thank you to the live chat team for recommending this lens...
Capturing the world in close up
I bought this specifically for macro and close up images of insects and plants, however I also use this for landscape since the quality and colour reproduction is just so good.........[@]All Canon users looking for a macro lens should have this in their kit bag [...]

Bought this lens after reading reviews on here and I am not dissapointed. Bought for macro shots of Butterflies and this lens excels at all it does. We have already taken some cracking shots, and cant wait for the weather to warm up to get some more. It's also a handy telephoto lens but its real forte is macro!
