Discover the world in macro with the EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM. Lightweight yet robust, this macro lens is comfortable to use and the perfect choice if you're starting out in macro photography. Utilising a ring-type ultrasonic motor, the autofocus is fast, accurate and quiet, providing up to life-size (1x) magnification and a long working distance of 5.9in (149mm). When focusing at 1x magnification, the lens does not extend helping you avoid bumping into your subject! The EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM is extremely sharp, even when wide open, helping you to bring even the tiniest subjects to life. Colour and contrast are superb, while vignetting, distortion and flare are all extremely well controlled. Its eight-blade aperture also helps to create excellent background blur, making it an ideal portrait lens.
