Product information

This precision engineered Canon 100mm lens is ideal for professionals and advanced amateurs look for that extra edge when shooting macro and portrait images with their EOS camera.

  • A 3 position focus limiter switch lets you increase your autofocus speed making quick-fire shots - even of distant subjects - easy.
  • The circular blade aperture helps to create attractive, even backgrounds when isolating subjects at wide apertures.
  • The USM (ultrasonic motor) gives you rapid autofocus and virtually silent operation. There’s also a mechanical override for absolute control of your shots.
  • Suitable for all Canon DSLRS.

Q & As


Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L IS USM Macro Lens 5 5 2 2
Amazing Quality! When I purchased this lens I was skeptical about whether or not an L series lens was worth the extra money. I have now answered that question with a definate yes. This lens is exceptional quality and useful for both portaits and macro shots, producing remarkable macro images. I am yet to find another macro lens to produce such amazing images. This lens is a great purchase for anybody looking to take macro photography to the next level and from the quality of this len in build, weight, operation, feel and in the images produced I will be buying more L series lenses in the future. 05 August 2014
A very sharp versatile prime lens This a great lens which is very sharp and I've found versatile. The macro side is wonderful if you enjoy taking pictures of flowers for example. As well as Macro shots the 100mm focal length is good for portraits and general purpose shots for example pets. It has great IS and is fairly light weight L series lens. It compliments my other lenses perfectly and the L series quality speaks for itself. 25 May 2014
