Featuring the outstanding build quality of Canon’s L-series and a range of high quality features, the EF 100mm f/2.8L IS USM is a macro lens that lets you get up close and personal, allowing you to capture outstanding images of the world in macro. With a small, light body, this lens is comfortable, portable and easy to use. With angle and shift detection, its Hybrid Image Stabiliser automatically helps you stabilise your shot, while its ring-type ultrasonic motor gives you an incredibly accurate autofocus that is fast and quiet. The EF 100mm f/2.8L IS USM also provides excellent contrast and colour rendition, producing extremely sharp images right into the corners. And as the lens doesn’t move while focusing, you also don’t have to worry about bumping into your subject while shooting at minimum focus distance!
