Capture razor-sharp closeups and uncover new worlds of photographic detail with this high-quality macro lens from Canon. Its close-focusing capability lets you turn small, everyday objects into dramatic, frame filling images — count the grains of pollen clinging to a flower's stamen or get a clear view of the veins in a dragonfly's wing. Plus, this lens' medium telephoto focal length and large maximum aperture also make it ideal for shooting striking portraits with pleasantly blurred backgrounds that make your subjects stand out.
The EF 100mm macro gives you precise, silent auto focusing using advanced Canon optics and a powerful ultra sonic motor (USM). A wide, smooth-action focusing ring allows full-time manual focus and lets you instantly override the AF whenever necessary with just a twist. When focused as closely as possible, you get a generous working distance of nearly 6" between the front lens element and your subject to avoid contact or interference.
