Canon 100mm f/2.0 overview

  • 1Description

Well-suited to portraiture and isolating subject matter, the Canon EF 100mm f/2 USM is a short-telephoto prime characterized by its slightly compressed perspective for achieving flattering results. Its bright f/2 maximum aperture also benefits using shallow depth of field techniques as well as working in low-light conditions. Helping to achieve high color fidelity and contrast, a Super Spectra coating has been applied to individual elements and serves to minimize reflections, lens flare, and ghosting. Additionally, a ring-type USM is employed to deliver quick and quiet autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus control.

Short-telephoto, portrait-length prime is designed for full-frame Canon EF-mount DSLRs, however can also be used with APS-C models where it provides a 160mm equivalent focal length.
Bright f/2 maximum aperture benefits working in low-light conditions and also affords greater control over depth of field for working with selective focus techniques.
Super Spectra coating has been applied to individual elements to minimize ghosting and flare for greater contrast and color neutrality when working in strong lighting conditions.
A ring-type Ultrasonic Motor (USM) is employed to deliver fast, precise, and quiet autofocus performance as well as full-time manual focus override.
Rounded eight-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.

    Canon 100mm f/2.0 reviews

    EF 100mm f/2 USM Lens is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 128.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An exceptional lens, This really is a fine lens. It's quality is outstanding. Even at f/2 the main subject is sharp and contrasty. The usm drive is quiet and fast. It produces photos, in my opinion, nearly as good as the 135mm f/2, at 40% of the price. I can say that because I've owned both lens. Where it doeslag, as with the 85mm f/1.8, is build quality. It may preform like a L lens, but it isn't built like one. Today, with most of using digitals with ap-s size sensors,the small 85mm is often the preffed choice. But the 100mm, although never as popular, is a great lens. Perhaps one of the best portrait lens you can own.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Surprising lens! Despite its age, that's still an amazing lens. Unfortunately, it lacks the stabilizer and the AF is not up to the best Canon lenses, but other than that, this lens is just great. Distortion is negligible, vignetting is very well controlled and sharpness is very good throughout the whole frame even at f/2. Bokeh is nice even stopping down. Build quality is good and the quite large MF ring is very helpful if you use the lens with a follow focus. In my opinion, the only reason to spend more money for the 135/2 is the addictional focal lenght and the "L" built quality. Other than that, you won't miss anything with the 100/2. I really hope for a new IS version with the same optical quality...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly Under-rated Lens This is the only non-L lens in my kit. It is often overlooked because of Canon's other 100mm offerings and some say that the 2.8L IS macro makes this lens redundant. If you shoot macro and want something that doubles as a portrait lens, then by all means go for the 2.8L IS. If you want a great portrait lens at 100, this is better wide open than the macro. For me, 100 mm is the perfect focal length for portraits on full frame. This lens is super sharp, has practically no distortion, and focuses lightning fast even though it is one of the older lenses in Canon's lineup. Creamy bokeh, and the lens looks unobtrusive and doesn't scream "expensive". Although it is not an L lens, it is very solidly built and even has a metal filter thread.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Portrait Lens! I recieved this lens for Christmas, hoping for a great portrait lens. And I got just that! This lens is amazing for portraits! The Bokeh is soo buttery! The colour and contrast are right on, and the sharpness is like a razor! Great great lens! The only con is, I wish it had image stabilizer. You either need UBER steady hands, or a tripod. This lens is not ment to go out to a party and get candid shots. But if you're serious about getting a better feel for portrait photography, this is a great starting point! You will not be dissapointed!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best money spent I needed a prime lens for an upcoming Martial Arts tournament. I did my research first and came up with the 85mm f1.8. They said it was very sharp but I needed a bit more reach. There was the 135mm f2 as well except it was just to long for the job. I noticed they had this one but there wern't many reviews on it so I was a bit worried at first. I was running out of time and so I decided to take a chance and buy it. Im so glad I did, it's razor sharp and fast to focus at f2 and even sharper stopped down. It's as light as a feather and is very stealth like being quiet as a mouse when focusing. Just Amazing I highly recommend it to anyone that needs a fast prime for indoor work.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Canon lens for me I used a lot of Canon lens but i always keep this one as my favourite. For portraits it's impossible to do better. I feel comfortable with the 100mm range, the f2 aperture, the size, look and the weight of this lens. It is very good for street shooting and some landscape. I simply love this lens, it always give me stellar images. If it was rugged like the 100L F2.8, it would be simply perfect, but the built quality is very good so it's not a big drawback. I prefer it over the 85mm f1.8 that is very good too. If i had only one lens to keep, it would be this one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, underrated lens I tried the 85mm f/1.8 lens as a portrait lens and was not too happy with the working distance, in order to produce tight close-ups. I've tried using my 100mm f/2.8 macro and the working distance was more suitable for me. But, that is a slow focusing lens, and it's heavy for my portrait needs, although that's an excellent all-in-one macro/portrait lens. So, on a whim, I traded a lens for the 100mm f/2 and I love it. It focuses reasonably fast, is very sharp, has good background blur ability and is so lightweight and inconspicuous. I'd highly recommend it for indoor and outdoor portraiture.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lens !! I bought this lens not knowing what to expect. It was my first prime lens which I got myself and for some reason, I picked this 100mm over the nifty fifty. When I finally received it, it was a really good lens. But when I kept using it over the months, I realized that this was a great lens. I prefer it to the 50mm f/1.8 II. I love taking portraits with this lens, especially of my dogs. I have taken many great photos with this lens and now, I use it more than any other lens that I own. It is the main lens on my camera.
