Primarily designed for close-up shooting, EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM from Canon is a major improvement over the Canon 100mm f/2.8 Macro. This versatile L-series short telephoto prime is Ideal for macro shooting. It offers a life-size 1:1 maximum magnification along with a minimum focusing distance of 11.8" to suit working with close-up subjects.

Improved Image Stabilization
The Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L IS Macro Lens offers Image Stabilization that produces sharper images for both macro and portrait shooting. Acceptably sharp images can be achieved at shutter speeds as low as 1/10th of a second. The hybrid image-stabilization system helps to minimize the linear and rotational shake to better enable working in low-light conditions. The effectiveness of this system compensates for up to two stops of camera shake at 1:1 magnification, three stops at 1:2 magnification, and four stops at lower magnifications.

USM Motor
Contributing to smooth and intuitive handling, a ring-type Ultrasonic Motor (USM), and internal focusing design, is employed to deliver fast, precise, and quiet autofocus performance as well as full-time manual focus override. Focus Limiter switch lets you constrain the focusing to three different ranges for faster focusing performance: 11.8"-1.6', 1.6'-infinity, and the full 11.8"-infinity range

Advanced Optics and Focusing
With fifteen elements in twelve groups, an improved ultrasonic motor, and a nine-blade aperture ring for smooth out-of-focus highlights, the f/2.8L IS Macro represents a major improvement over the already-excellent lens it replaces. One ultra-low dispersion (UD) element greatly reduces chromatic aberrations and color fringing for improved clarity and color accuracy.

Build Quality
As a member of the esteemed L-series, this lens is sealed against dust and moisture for working in inclement environmental conditions. Super Spectra coating has been applied to individual elements to minimize ghosting and flare for greater contrast and color neutrality when working in strong lighting conditions. Optional rotating tripod collar is available and benefits working with the lens atop a tripod or monopod.

Movri Canada, providing the mail-delivery system, is set out to make the gear available at more affordable prices through online rentals.

  • Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM Lens is designed for full-frame Canon EF-mount DSLRs however can also be used with APS-C models where it provides a 160mm equivalent focal length.

  • The IS system in this lens makes a rattling noise when holding it vertically, which is perfectly normal. The IS system elements have to move perpendicular to the light path so they move side-to-side freely as well as tilting to counter the effects of camera shake. When the lens is held vertically, the IS elements are actually sitting centered so when gently shaken they move side-to-side. When turned horizontally or when attached to a camera and powered up, the rattling stops as the IS is engaged so you do not have to worry about the rattling noise when composing your shot.

  • Ideal for wedding photography because it captures faces as well as small details (like rings and flowers) with exceptional crispness. Also well-suited for portraiture and other mid-range subjects.
