Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM Overview

Primarily designed for close-up shooting, the EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM from Canon is a versatile L-series short telephoto prime that is also well-suited for portraiture and other mid-range subjects. As a macro lens, however, this 100mm offers a life-size, 1:1 maximum magnification and an 11.8" minimum focusing distance. Complementing close-up shooting, an Image Stabilizer is featured that minimizes camera shake by two stops at full 1:1 magnification, or up to four stops at lower magnifications for sharper handheld shooting. Also contributing to smooth and intuitive handling, a ring-type USM and internal focusing design offers quick, quiet, and accurate autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override. In regard to its optical assets, one ultra-low dispersion element is featured, to control color fringing and chromatic aberrations, and a Super Spectra coating has been applied to suppress flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color fidelity. Additionally, as an L-series lens, this 100mm f/2.8 is weather-sealed for working in inclement conditions.

Short telephoto 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.
Ideal for macro shooting, this lens offers a life-size 1:1 maximum magnification along with a minimum focusing distance of 11.8" to suit working with close-up subjects.
One ultra-low dispersion (UD) element greatly reduces chromatic aberrations and color fringing for improved clarity and color accuracy.
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.
An Optical Image Stabilizer helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake to better enable working in low-light conditions and with slower shutter speeds. The effectiveness of this system compensates for up to two stops of camera shake at 1:1 magnification, three stops at 1:2 magnification, and four stops at lower magnifications.
A ring-type Ultrasonic Motor (USM), and internal focusing design, is employed to deliver fast, precise, and quiet autofocus performance as well as full-time manual focus override.
Focus Limiter switch lets you constrain the focusing to three different ranges for faster focusing performance: 11.8"-1.6', 1.6'-infinity, and the full 11.8"-infinity range.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.
As a member of the esteemed L-series, this lens is sealed against dust and moisture for working in inclement environmental conditions.
Optional rotating tripod collar is available and benefits working with the lens atop a tripod or monopod.

question

This is a new lens or the second one?When and where this lens was producted?Louis
Asked by: Anonymous
As of this time , ALL L lenses are made in one place in Japan, the city of Utsunomiya. There are date and place codes on lenses up until a few years ago. The first letter is U, F or O. U stands for Utsunomiya, F for Fukashima, which is no longer producing due to the nuclear accident, and O for Oita. EF-S lenses are made in Taiwan. Four digits follow the two first letters, the second letter is the year, you can look it up, the next four are numbers, the first two are the month, the next two are internal to Canon. My 70-200 f/4L IS has a manufacturer code of UX1128. Made in Utsunomiya, 2009, November.

Not sure what you mean. You will get cropped photos because you have a crop sensor, but you will be able to fill the frame with a bee if that is what you are asking.

The Focus ring has a little Play(wobbles a bit) when manually focusing on my unit. is this normal? I recently switched to Canon and this is my First Canon lens. Could someone share your experience with this lens?
Asked by: Uday Bhaskar
When using the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM Lens, the focusing ring, should not be wobbling. Canon would be happy to fix that, with the one year coverage. That sounds like a "factory defect".
