Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L IS Macro USM
- Product Details
While Canon has long had a 100mm Macro lens in its lineup, the new EF 100mm f/2.8L IS Macro is significantly ahead of its predecessor in build quality, features and optics. The old non-L 100mm Macro is a striking lens in its own right, but the addition of a weather-sealed (with the appropriate camera body) construction, better optics, a 9-blade rounded iris for smooth, creamy, butter bokeh (background blur) and Canon’s new Hybrid IS make this lens one of the finest in its lineup. The Hybrid IS alone is an impressive addition; it adds up to 4 stops of image stabilization, producing acceptably sharp images at shutter speeds as low as 1/10 of a second. In addition, this is a true 1:1 macro lens, which means it can reproduce items at life-size magnification. The 100mm focal length also makes it an ideal portrait lens, something that the Image Stabilization goes a long way towards helping. All this and more give Canon shooters a worthy competitor to Nikon’s 105mm f/2.8G AF-S VR IF-ED Micro. This one lens rental you will want to keep booking over and over again.
