EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM
One of the most outstanding macro lenses for digital SLRs in the world today. Supremely sharp, even wide-open, and an advanced, hybrid IS system that provides up to 4 stops of shake-correction at normal distances, and up to two stops even at life-size magnification. It's a simply tremendous lens for tele shots at normal distances, such as candids, portraits, or even fashion. And of course, it's a brilliant solution for close-up images, up to life-size.
- An outstanding general-purpose telephoto lens, fast enough (f/2.8) for low-light shooting without flash or added lighting, with Image Stabilization and superb sharpness
- State-of-the-art macro performance, making it ideal for any documentary purposes of small objects (forensic, medical, dental, industrial), and of course nature or studio close-ups as well
- Life-size (1x, or 1:1) magnification at nearest focus distance*; working distance at life size 5.25 inches (13.3cm)
* Please note: close-up magnification figures remain constant, regardless of sensor size of the Canon EOS digital SLR this lens is mounted to. A smaller sensor may effectively "crop" what the lens can see, but doesn't change the actual magnification size at the imaging sensor plane
