Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM macro - (APS-C) Review / Test Report

photozone.de
2 March 2010
  • Conclusion: The Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM macro may be a comparatively old lens by now but it's still capable of playing in the top league - easily. It provides sharp images straight from f/2.8 and it's downright excellent between f/4 and f/8.

Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM macro (full format) - Review / Test Report

2 March 2010
  • Conclusion: The Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM macro may not have the shiny reputation of an L grade lens but it's a great performer nonetheless. It provides sharp images straight from f/2.8 all the way down to f/16 and neither distortions nor lateral CAs are something to worry about.

  • Excerpt: While some macro lens barrels extend alarmingly to focus in really close, the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM uses an internal focusing mechanism so the lens remains the same length at all times.

Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM L IS macro (APS-C) - Review / Lab Test Report

photozone.de
15 October 2009
  • Conclusion: The Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM L IS macro has a comparatively easy play in the APS-C arena. The center to corner resolution is very high up to f/11 and even f/16 is a perfectly usable setting here. Typical for macro lenses distortions are a non-issue. Vignetting is only a slight problem at f/2.8.
