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.
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.
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.
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 to 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.
A versatile lens great for portraits
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.
A great dual-purpose addition to your kit bag, the EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM is a great lens for portrait photography, allowing you to get exceptionally close to your subject, whilst keeping incredibly sharp image quality.
Beautiful portraits in crystal clear detail
The EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM is everything you’d expect from a prime lens. Its excellent optical quality and superior delivery of ultra-fine detail are great for when your portraits need an emphasis on facial features.
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.
