Macro with extended reach
The EF 100mm F/2.8 Macro USM is a medium telephoto lens with a macro feature providing a 1.0x magnification. With eight aperture blades, creative background blur is possible to help make the subject stand out. The lens features a focusing limiter switch which limits the focus range to improve AF speed.
Ring USM auto focus with manual override
Canon’s ring USM auto focus system employs ultrasonic frequency vibrations for fast, accurate and virtually silent operation. Full-time manual focus override, via a large ring that does not rotate during auto focus, allows photographers to fine-tune focusing instantly.
Super Spectra coating
Super Spectra coatings help ensure accurate colour balance and high contrast, and suppress flare and ghosting by absorbing light that might be reflected off internal lens elements and image sensor.
The range and quality of this lens is not that much better than the 18-135 zoom lens that I use as standard. It does have a bigger aperture, so more light, but no stabilisation so I have to use higher shutter speeds. It does focus closer that the 18-135 lens but again not THAT much closer. Although the 'L' version of this lens is twice the price, I would recommend buyers look closely at that rather than this lens. I will keep this lens for portrait and spiders but wil probably not get the use I envisaged.
Ideal for portraits and macro photography
