Canon RF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM Reviews

Great Lens in my opinion!

By Thomas

So I am not a Macro Pro by any means, but I love this lens. It really opened up a new world of photography to explore. I've not only used this lens to experiment with macro, but I've used it for potraits too and it helps in producing wonderful photographs. Again, I am by no means a pro photographer and I have much to learn, but to me, this is a great lens to add to your gear.

This is my first macro lens and I love it! No comparisons to offer but the lens quickly locks focus and depending on your in-camera settings you can use the manual focus ring to adjust your focus or to zoom in on your focus point. SA control is a nice feature, like most things in photography, it's value to your style will depend on how you use it. I do appreciate the ability to lock it in place when I don't want to use it, but I'll experiment with it and have one more trick in the bag.

A lens I always wanted but never splurged on

I'm a full time wedding photographer and I recently switched over to the mirrorless line. This was my first mirrorless lens purchase and I always held off on buying one because I thought it was a very high price for something I'd only be using for macro photos of wedding rings, but once I got it, I started using it in place of my 70-200, too. And I like it BETTER. No, it doesn't get as close up, but if you're able to get away with the 100mm distance and move yourself closer physically, it's incredible!

One sharp lens

Was a little hesitant about purchasing this lens, but I am so glad I did buy it. This lens is fantastic. Haven't tried the macro abilities yet, but I'm sure it will impress. The lens is quite sharp with very fast focusing ability. I have heard about some tendency to back focus on close subjects but with manual override this won't be an issues.

Glad to have my 100mm F2.8 Macro in RF mount

I switched to RF mount lenses with my purchase of Canon R in 2018 and have been waiting to get this lens for my current R5 and arriving R5C camera. The build quality of or all L-line RF lenses is outstanding including this 100mm Macro lens. This lens is remarkably light and I bring it with me on hikes in nature and use it to capture minute details of flowers, leaves, and small living creatures. I have not found SA control dial to be useful so far, but I'll keep experimenting with it in different background and lighting scenes. The lens stabilization is great when shooting video hand-held. The image quality is beyond reproach and it along justifies owning this lens as a 100mm prime.

Great lens

This was an upgrade from my Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro Lens and the difference is night and day. The quality is unmatched. A definite for your bag.
