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

Hybrid IS effectively compensates for both angular and shift camera shake during close-up shooting.

SInce I started shooting with 1.6X crop sensor cameras in 2004, this has become my primary macro lens. Before that, on film (i.e., "full frame") cameras, I tended to use the 180/3.5 macro more. With the cameras I'm using now, the 100/2.8 gives me the right combo of adequate working distance from shy or downright nasty, sharp-toothed subjects, but not so far that depth of field is ultra shallow so that I need to stop down a lot and use a slow shutter speed, to the point it's no longer practical to handhold. The 100/2,8 also serves very well as a moderate telephoto lens for non-macro shooting, on any crop sensor SLR. The main reason this lens serves dual purposes so well is that it's got fast USM auto focus. If you are sure to use the limiter switch when shooting at non-macro distances, it's AF will not disappoint (the 180/3.5 does not focus as quickly at non-macro distances, so is less of a dual purpose lens, in my opinion). Now, I know a lot of people use the 100/2.8 for a portrait lens, too. If anything, in my opinoin it might be too darned sharp for that purpose. You won't win points with your mother in law if you take her portrait with this lens and so precisely show every line and wrinkle! Still, it can be used for portraits, no doubt about it. Just soften her images a little in post production, or risk the wrath of your mother in law! It also can optionally be fitted with a tripod mounting ring, very handy, but something that is not possible with some other macro lenses around this focal length. One thing I've never been able to figure out is why the optional lens hood is so large. You certainly don't have to worry about stray light finding it's down there to the front lens element, when you use it! It's a bit of an overkill, but better too much hood than too little, I suppose. Internal focus means this lens doesn't change length when focused, which is pretty amazing and convenient for a 1:1 macro lens. Earlier 1:1 macro lenses grew tremendously, with double heligoid designs. Some tripled in length, which moves the front elements awfully close to small subjects. While I would agree that I.S. is nice to have on any lens and would be somewhat useful on this lens when using it as a moderate telephoto, I have to point out that I.S. is of little real use at macro focusing distances. There is one stabilized macro lens on the market now, and even it's manufacturer doesn't claim very much assistance from stabilixation with tiny subjects at higher magnifications. So, personally I don't see much sense in adding I.S. (and complexity and cost) to this already excellent lens. The 100/2.8 Macro works extremely well with macro extension rings and the MT24EX Twinlite flash, too.

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.

Good for sunny conditions, basically

By 

from Albany, NY, United States

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

I've had this lens for many years now being used on my 60D THE PROS: The image quality is spectacular. Everything is very crisp above f/3.5. f/2.8 is nice but the DOF is way too shallow and the parts that are in focus are not as crisp. The autofocus is quiet but very slow and goes unused for the most part because the DOF in macro photography is often too shallow to use. THE CONS: For being a f/2.8, it's not a fast lens, meaning it's not good in low light conditions. I almost never use it even close to sunset unless I have my lens mounted ring light or a flash. It is heavy as well. Long term use of this lens becomes very uncomfortable on my neck. It is tough to use this lens for portraits. It being a 100mm fixed lens, you have to stand unusually far away from your subject. In retrospect, I wish I spent the money on a shorter, lighter macro lens that has better low light performance and is better with portraits

Wonderful quality. Decent build. No regrets.

By 

from Khazaad

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

I bought this lens because I wanted to explore a different type of photography than I was used to. Macro photography unlocks an entire universe of different material this lens was my gateway. Typically, prime lenses perform better at their static focal lengths than zoom lenses do when dialed into the same length and I believe this lens is no different. The picture quality is on par with Canon's finest and it does double duty as a wonderful portrait lens. Many of the reviews here say how wonderful the AF is on this lens though I would differ in some regards. The AF *is* fast but it isn't unerringly accurate. It definitely struggles in low-light and aside from the speed, feels pretty average for this tier of lenses. The upside to this is the satisfyingly smooth manual focus ring that feels perfectly tuned to ones sense of touch and sight. This really makes the lens shine since manual focusing is absolutely necessary and a critical part of macro photography, especially at wider apertures. I may have become pampered with the unrivaled AF capabilities of the Canon 24-70mm 2.8 II but it's where I draw my comparison. The IS engineered into this lens is what really brings all the pieces together. Macro photography by nature is literally, very touchy. When the smallest hand shake makes the difference between a viable shot and a waste of card memory, the IS is invaluable and lets you spend more time off the tripod and more time shooting.

Awewsome Lens at an awesome price

By 

from Maui County, HI, United States

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

I bought this lens about 6 months ago and can tell you I've put it through the works. From macro photography to portrait work this lens just keeps on surprising me. The focus is a bit slow but not terrible. Works great in low light situations and is super quite. The low aperture is great for portrait work and it's produces super sharp images. It's a bit heavy because its a macro lens but, not by much. Still easy to use without a tripod. I never write reviews but, I'm so happy with this lens I thought I'd share.

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

If not by far the best lenses Canon has ever made, definitely this is one of the bests that I have come across. I not only use this for macros, but also use this for portraits too. The sharpness is superb and the image stabilization is outstanding. I am just I'm Lovin' It.

One of the best?

By 

from Dallas, TX, United States

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

For those seeking a lens to help them capture images of objects as small as a dime, this is the lens for you! Here are a few bullet points: -It can focus on an object less than a foot away. -Objects as small as a Quarter (dollar) will fill the frame. -Very shallow depth of field even at small apertures (ex. f/22). We are talking fractions of a millimeter. -Very sharp images. -The lens is versatile as well able to stand in as a portrait lens in a pinch. -The Image Stabilizer will function properly when used vertically on a copy stand. The images are sharper when the IS is turned on. I have done tests. Make sure you read the manual and set it appropriately. I use this lens and the MP-E 65 mm f/2.8 1-5x almost exclusively. If you are trying to decide between the two, keep in mind that the MP-E is designed to shoot subject matter as large as a US Dime (1x) and as small as a grain of rice (5x). The MP-E also needs to be no further than a few inches away from the subject matter in most cases. Hope this helps answer some questions!

Outstanding

By 

from Chicago, Illinois, Estados Unidos

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.
