Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM

EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM

Compatible with all EOS cameras including mirrorless using the EF-EOS M Mount Adapter

A prime lens with excellent macro capabilities

The EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM has a true macro magnification ratio of 1:1, meaning the object you are photographing in real life is the same size as on your camera sensor. This versatile lens gives great results in portrait work and handheld movie-making, thanks to its ability to achieve a shallow depth of field with beautiful bokeh, along with built-in Hybrid Image Stabilization and lightweight design.

The EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM is a great lens for:

Sharp Macro results

While many Canon lenses have Image Stabilizer (IS) capable of regulating camera shake when working hand-held, this lens features a groundbreaking Hybrid Image Stabilizer system to counteract regular angular shake and lateral shift-shake which is exaggerated when shooting extreme close-ups.

Hybrid IS ON IS OFF

Image shown for "ON" demonstrates the use of Hybrid Image Stabilizer, while "OFF" shows the image without any use of Image Stabilizer.

Shift and Shake

Shift-based shake occurs when a camera moves parallel to the image sensor scene, this is significantly more pronounced in macro photography. Usually macro photography requires a steady tripod, however the new Hybrid IS helps to eliminate angular and shift camera shake. This gives you more flexibility to eliminate natural camera shake and to respond to your subject if it moves or changes position, ensuring crisp images when shooting macro subjects.

A unique lens

Swift, silent response for great results

When the slightest disturbance can ruin a perfectly prepared live shot, the superb speed and silent autofocus of the USM motor paired with the 100mm focal length ensures you achieve the best results, whilst having enough distance so as not startle your subject. Use the built-in focus limiter switch to further increase the AF acquisition speed by limiting the focus within a specific distance range.

L-series build quality

Part of the prestigious range of L-series lenses, the EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM is engineered from the highest quality materials and is weather sealed to make it robust enough for shooting in all conditions.

This lens is a great option for portraits because of the Ultra-Low Dispersion (UD) lens element that removes chromatic aberration and the exceptional bokeh produced by 9-blade circular aperture combined with f/2.8.

The combination of the exceptional Hybrid IS, f/2.8 aperture and fast USM autofocusing system makes this a truly unique lens that performs exceptionally well, making it popular for those who occasionally do macro, as well as those that want to specialise in it.

The perfect perspective

The 100mm focal length is perfect for portraits, enabling flattering close-ups without distorting facial features. The Hybrid Image Stabilization allows shooting of beautiful images, handheld in low light.

Don’t be distracted from the detail

The f2.8 aperture allows for a shallow depth of field, creating the impression of distance. This helps separate the subject from the background and draw the eye to focus on the detail you want.
