Engineered specifically for full-frame EOS R-series cameras, the RF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM Lens from Canon combines a medium-telephoto field of view with a sleek design and close-focusing performance. Designed for close-up imagery, this autofocus lens is an ideal choice for portraits and macro subjects. Featuring a fixed 100mm focal length, a bright f/2.8 maximum aperture, fast, highly-precise autofocus, and a spherical aberration control ring, this lens elevates the look of portraits and macro shots and gives you the ability to create dreamlike and romantic images with a soft focus look. Its close focus design enables working with subject matter as close as 10.2" away, and a Super Spectra coating minimizes ghosting and flare when working in strong lighting conditions. The lens also features optical image stabilization, along with Hybrid IS, to suppress up to five stops of camera shake for cleaner, steadier shooting, and imagemakers can expect to see stunning results that enhance their creative and artistic vision.

What is the actual focal length at 1x? At 1.4x? ...

What is the actual focal length at 1x? At 1.4x? We all know any number of 70-200 zooms from the past that as successive generations of updates claimed closer minimum focus distances, that was achieved by making the long (nominally 200mm end) reduced, sometime by a lot - say to 120mm or so.

What is the working distance at 1x and 1.4x?

What is the working distance at 1x and 1.4x?
Asked by: Ed
Focusing distance at 1.4x is 10.2" inches / 26 cm. This is measured from the Sensor Plane. Measuring from the end of the lens this would be 3.6" inches / 9 cm. Unfortunately as this lens has not been made available yet and it is not listed in the specs, we do not yet have information on focusing distance at 1x. Though it would definitely be a longer distance than at 1.4x.

Asked by: Robert
The Canon ET-73C Lens Hood for RF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM Lens is included with the purchase of the Canon RF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM Lens. However, the Canon Tripod Mount Ring and Adapter for RF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM Lens, B&H # CAUTPMRA, is an optional accessory that must be purchased separately.
