  • Conclusion: Overall then, this lens is a capable performer, with quick and silent autofocus system and generally good to excellent image quality. While more expensive then the Tamron SP AF 90mm F/2.8 Di Macro 1:1, it has the distinct advantages of an internal focusing system and a much quieter motor.

Worth every dollar per MM

  • Excerpt: A little friendly competition is always good. In the case of playground battle between Canon and Nikon, the shooters usually win, and Canon’s much-delayed response to Nikon’s fantastic 105mm f/2.8 macro lens, the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L IS USM Macro ($900) has win written all over it. The 1:1 image uses a stabilization system that compensates for horizontal and vertical shake and pitch, or even forward and backward motion on Macro Servo equipped cameras like the Canon EOS...

  • Conclusion: The Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM may not be the company's top of the line macro lens, but it does capture sharp images with 1:1 magnification.
  • Pros: Sharp images. 1:1 magnification. Inexpensive.
  • Cons: Prone to color fringing. Lens hood not included. No image stabilization.

  • Conclusion: Canon delivers everything that a photographer could want in a 100mm macro lens: ultrasonic focus motor, internal focus mechanism, non-rotating front element, floating optical group for consistent image quality at different magnifications, rugged construction, and reasonable price.

  • Summary: Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM Macro is one of the best lenses in Canon's modern portfolio. The lens exhibits very even performance across pretty much entire aperture range on both APS-C and full frame cameras. With no major artifacts to speak about, decent build quality and inner focusing mechanism, as well as very reasonable price tag, this is the lens to own for macro and telephoto photography.

Lens Test: Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L IS USM Macro

Pop Photo
1 March 2009
  • Excerpt: More than three years after Nikon’s groundbreaking 105mm f/2.8 VR macro , Canon has shot back with a $1,000 (street) fullframer, its first 1:1 close-up lens with image stabilization. A new “hybrid” stabilization system, it compensates for horizontal and vertical camera shake (shift and pitch), and also tackles slight camera tilts (what Canon calls “angular” movement, usually called “roll”).

  • Excerpt: The Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM Macro Lens is an excellent macro lens - and may be Canon's most fun per dollar lens. This is the lens I most frequently recommend for someone starting out in macro photography – at least most frequently recommend until the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 L IS USM Macro Lens was introduced.
