Canon EF 100mm F/2.8L Macro IS USM Review

The Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM is a lens for Canon digital SLR cameras that is loved by many photographers. Almost every one of its users has something good to say about this lens. The only drawback is the price especially to those who are just starting in the field of photography. It is the first of the L series of Canon and the Image Quality (IQ) looks very impressive. The lens is equipped with one of the most desirable features, the Image Stability (IS) which protects the images from hand or camera vibrations or shakes. It also has a full-time manual focus and it is effortless to change the mode of the camera from automatic focus to manual. Focusing is fast and precise. Even in places where there is less light, the output is always bright. The optics is of high caliber and the close-up facility is life size. It is the first camera that initialized the use of Hybrid Image Stabilization which is best for close-up shooting. The close-up focusing distance is as close as 0.99ft which is definitely a very short distance. The Bokeh is also competitive. It is smooth and gives the drama an artist is looking for. This IS plays a significant role for portraits but not really that vital on macro. It is a little difficult to lock the precise focus for close-ups. But with this lens, it is a real pleasure to take shots of tiny objects. The result is unquestionably clear, sharp, detailed and full of vibrant colors. As for its Image Quality (IQ), it is worth the money. The images are razor-sharp and the colors are natural-looking. It is really pricey; however, the image quality is very satisfactory. It is sharp, crisp and the colors are all very nice to look at. It is an all-around camera lens that can perform well for portraits and landscapes, indoor or outdoor, close-up or not, this macro lens really delivers. The autofocus is noiseless and snappy. For still images, the manual focusing is a lot better to use than the AF. The exterior of the 100mm is well- built, although, the body is not metal but plastic. That is the reason for its lighter weight compared to other lenses in the L series. But it is definitely heavier than some of the lenses on the market. Moreover, there is no tripod mount ring in the package. That would be an additional expense on the part of the user. This macro lens has an acceptable weight; nonetheless, this is still the number two complaints from users. In summary, almost all lens users find this lens nearly flawless if not for the price. However, if money is not an issue, this lens is worth purchasing for its image quality and features reliability. It is a stand-out in macro photography and delivers well for portrait photography. The Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM lens beats a lot of lenses on the market today. It is a great buy.
  • Pros:
    Picture quality is impressive Received many compliments

    Plastic-built Pricey Heavy
