Lenses are essential tools for enthusiast and professional photographers. The ability to change lenses permits all kinds of opportunities for the photographer, allowing them to capture quality images that would be difficult with just the one, standard lens.
The Canon 100mm F 2.8 L Macro Lens is part of Canon’s prestigious L-series of optics, and is designed for optimum performance in close-up (macro) photography. Its rugged and reliable design protects against unfriendly climates and accidental bumps and knocks. It offers a minimum focussing distance of 30 cm.
The photographic features of the lens are stunning. The L Macro Lens includes a Hybrid Image Stabiliser, which corrects lens shifts and angular shift to ensure stable images. The Hybrid Image Stabiliser allows for 2 stops of correction for 1.0x (macro) zoom, 3 for 0.5x and 4 for regular shooting. A focus limiter switch is also integrated into the lens. This allows for quick shot by permitting an increase in autofocus speed.
This lens contains an Ultra-low Dispersion (UD) lens element to remove chromatic aberration and thus improve image quality. Artistic effects are easily achieved with the L Macro Lens. Its 9-blade circular aperture creates bokeh effects (creative blurring) when isolating subjects at wide apertures. In addition, manual focus override is available, which allows you to focus the lens yourself without switching out of autofocus (AF) mode.
