The Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM lens the perfect choice for anyone who enjoys macro photography. This L-series lens enjoys a long 100mm focal length that is designed for macro work with life-size 1:1 macro magnification and a 0.30m/11.81” minimum focus distance. The optical construction includes ultra-low dispersion (UD) optical elements that work to reduce aberrations and are protected by dust- and moisture resistant seals. Autofocus is powered by the UltraSonic Motor (USM) for quiet focusing, while the Hybrid Optical Image Stabilization can compensate up to four stops – excellent for challenging macro shots. Combined with the fast f/2.8 aperture, you can be guaranteed to get that perfect picture no matter the conditions. This superbly constructed and designed lens is simply unrivaled in its class.
Convenient Focal LengthThe 100mm focal length (160mm equivalent on Canon APS-C) is designed perfectly for macro photography, but it’s not a one-trick lens. It can also be used as an excellent portrait lens or for other medium telephoto purposes.
Life-size 1:1 MagnificationThis lens is one of the few that enjoy life-size image reproduction. By focusing down to 1:1 life-size magnification, you can achieve some amazing close-up shots. Through the use of optional extension tubes you are able to increase this ratio even further.
Hybrid Image Stabilization TechnologyThe Optical Image Stabilization technology that is included in this lens has been designed to make macro photography a breeze. Using a vibration gyro and acceleration sensor, this hybrid technology can compensate up to four stops and reduce both angle and shift camera shake. You can now finally enjoy capturing tack sharp close-ups in low light conditions.
Fast and Quiet FocusCanon’s UltraSonic Motor (USM) technology has been incorporated into this lens to make its autofocus fast and quiet. It also includes an easy-to-use full-time manual override when you need to get the focus just so.
