Capture Spectacular, Up-Close Detail
Capture the world in spectacular, up-close detail with this Canon 100mm macro f2.8 lens. With 1x magnification, this remarkable lens reproduces subjects—from gourmet food to vintage jewellery or scuttling beetles—up to life-size on your camera’s sensor. And with a 149mm working distance, the lens lets you get super close to subjects without overshadowing or disturbing them. Lightweight yet durable, the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM macro lens is ideal for any macro photography enthusiast.
Beautiful Portraits as Well as Macro Images
While the Canon 100mm f2.8 macro lens is designed for macro photography, it’s also excellent for portraiture. The mid-telephoto focal length flatters facial features and the large f2.8 aperture creates shallow depth of field to really emphasise your subject. An 8-blade aperture creates dreamy background blur that will beautifully enhance both portrait and macro images.
Outstanding Sharpness, Contrast and Colour
Thanks to the Canon 100mm macro f2.8 lens’ high-quality optics, you’ll be able to photograph details at their best. Even with the aperture wide open this Canon 100mm lens offers outstandingly sharp definition, with minimal distortion and vignetting. Super Spectra Coating on the lens surface reduces ghosting and flare to give your images rich contrast and true-to-life colour, even in challenging lighting conditions.
Fast, Accurate and Quiet Autofocus with MF Override
Capture super-close subjects fast. Equipped with a ring-type ultrasonic motor (USM), the Canon 100mm macro lens delivers high-speed and high-precision autofocus that’s virtually silent. This ensures you can keep up with a drifting butterfly or changing portrait poses, and not risk distracting your subject with the sound of your lens’ focus motor. When focusing at 1x magnification, the lens doesn’t extend, so there’s also less chance of you bumping into your subject! For the finest of focusing adjustments, MF override lets you manually focus without switching out of autofocus mode.
