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. 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.

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:

Superb lens, all in it is outstanding. High quality images, impressive contrast, fast and accurate auto focus. Works as well as a macro as a multipurpose lens. The construccion is solid, following the Canon modern trend in their last lenses, it is not plastic, it is much more strong than a simple plastic. I love this lens.

The best native Canon macro.

By 

from Sweden

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

Well, I do agree with the rest of the reviews; It is a really good lens and you will get some really nice images using it! The connection between the 100 mm's and the 2.8 aperture gives you a fantastic range of possibilities. Using the 2.8 aperture you will get a depth of field that is extremely short. The auto focus is really fast and the settings on the lens works really well to speed up the focus process. The only thing I find a bit negative is that this lens does feel a bit cheap. Compared to the 50 mm f/1.2L USM this 100 mm feels like a plastic toy that would break at the smallest drop.

EF 100mm F/2.8L Macro is a great lens

By 

from Virginia, United States

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

I bought this lens a couple of days ago. This is my first true macro lens. To get to know the lens I have taken dozens of test photos with my EOS 6D. I setup a tripod and took photos of some small nick-nacks with the 100mm F/2.8L and then attached the 24-105mm F/4L for comparison. The 100mm definitely blew me away with the detail and magnification at the closest distance that the 24-105mm is capable of. This is about 1.5 feet. I took photos of landscape objects about 60 feet away. Again comparing both lenses. The 100mm is at least the equal of the 24-105mm at those distances. In fact I prefer the 100mm because of its f/2.8 aperture. Its bokah is as good as advertised. The 100mm F/2.8L macro has become my base lens. I will be using the 24-100mm F/4L only when I need a wider field of view than the 100mm can provide. A great 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.
