Product Details

Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L IS USM Macro Camera Lens, Model 3554B002

Canon's newest "L" series lens is its first mid-telephoto macro lens to include Canon's sophisticated Image Stabilization.

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.

I wasn't certain this lens would be a good value or choice for an APS-C camera. Having recently purchased a 7D, I felt the focal length might be too long, but didn’t want the EF-S 60mm macro, when I expect to purchase a body with a full-frame sensor in a couple years. For anyone considering a 100mm Macro, I'm 6x6" tall, and was able to squeeze in an 8x11� sheet of paper on the floor, while standing with my 20D. I evaluated the EF 100mm Macro and this lens side-by-side. The older 100mm Macro has a great reputation. From the specifications, you'll see that the new lens is slightly longer, and weighs more. The build quality is excellent and consistent with an L lens. Optics are precise. Color and Bokeh are outstanding, as review samples attest. Auto focus and manual focus are smooth and deliberate. As with other Macros, the focus is precise, but moves slower than a standard telephoto lens of the same focal length. It takes approximately 2.5 seconds to focus from infinity to .3m. It takes approximately 3.0 seconds to focus from .3m to infinity, as the mechanism delays .5 seconds when autofocus is initiated. The focusing limiter selector switch functions well, eliminating the time to focus, if you know your subject will be between .3m to .5m, or .5m to infinity. The ranges offer a good compromise between focusing element travel and practical subject distances. .3m to .5m represents a 180 degree turn of the focusing ring, and .5m to infinity represents about a 150 degree turn of the focusing ring. I purchased this lens over the older 100mm Macro for the image stabilization. The image stabilization allows the hand held use of the lens under brighter lighting conditions. The image stabilization certainly behaves differently from other L lenses at 100mm. Telephoto IS may allow you to pan, this lens does not. Better shots will be obtained with IS on while tracking a moving subject; however, IS on this lens is no substitute for a telephoto with panning IS ability. The new IS technology does seem better suited for macro shots than earlier IS techonlogy. The subject seems to "stick" on this lens, as compared with images that seem to "float" with other IS lenses. IS compensates for movement quite well, but I will shoot low-light subjects on a tripod. With IS on and and shooting at 2.8, the depth of field is extremely shallow. Any movement toward or away from the subject will result in an out-of-focus image. My 1.6 sensor certainly exacerbates the problem. If you need to obtain a more adequate depth of field, you must shoot at 8.0 or above, which will require longer shutter times under low lighting. Outdoors, this lens will provide unique opportunities in allowing one to complete hand-held shots of bright-lit subjects, especially if you have a full-frame sensor.

Having owned many Canon lenses (25+) over the past 30 years, this lens is by far the one that uses the lowest grade of materials at this price. The plastic is so thin that if you pinch the focus ring while manual focusing, it sticks! Even the lens barrel flexes! Very cheesy! Does it really deserve the 'L" series designation? You be the judge. If fact, when my lens arrived new in the box, the image stabilization elements were "floating" around loose inside the lens. I found out later that this is caused by removing the lens from a camera before the IS motors have shut off. QC problem from Canon? Did a lens to lens test against my superbly built 70-200 f/2.8L IS II lens, and found the zoom to be better at all settings except macro, of course. So, don't buy this if you don't need it much for macro. Consider the supurb 100mm f/2, at less than half the price if you just do portraits and such.

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

Quality glass, durable, and consistent top performance. Expensive until the return on investment is formed. It's not my go to lens but like my wife's jewelry ROI, my ROI begins in just owning an outstanding lens and then seeing the results from a few great photos which adds immeasurable satisfaction. Worth it.

      I seldom write lens reviews but I have to say this lens blows me away. The sharpness is incredible. Not only is it an excellent macro lens, it is superb for automobile product shots and general photography. I would highly recommend this lens. The build is excellent and the auto-focus is fast and consistent. Well worth the cost.

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

        I have used this lens for over 2 years now, with both crop frame and full frame DSLR's (T3i/5d,6d) - it is one of the best pieces of Canon glass that I own, if not the best. If you do a lot of outdoor macro/closeup work, as I do, I would heartily recommend that you have one of these mounted as your first choice. On the rare occasions where I've done portrait work, it excels at that, too. The colors are sharp, and the bokeh is amazing!!!!!

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

            I had wanted to buy a dedicated macro lens, and after debating this versus the non-L version I make the leap and purchased this lens. Within a month, this has become my absolute favorite lens! If I could only keep one lens this would be it. In addition to its macro capabilities, which are great (especially if you add a Canon 25mm extender), the optics and bokeh on this lens are superb!!! The level of detail it captures, even at f/2.8, is simply amazing. Portraits, hummingbirds, dragonflies, you name it. This lens has the clarity and speed to do so much more than just macro. If you are thinking about it, just get it. You won't regret it!

              Overall this is an excellent lens. It shows great details and expresses full potential as a macro L lens. Job well done, Canon! Although it's slightly pricey, it's worth every penny. It occasionally focuses on an undesired area of the object on auto mode, but by switching to manual mode will fix the problem. It's also good for portrait shooting as well.
