Overview: The Canon EF100mm f/2.8L IS USM lens is an
L-series mid-telephoto macro lens for Canon EOS cameras. The lens features
the new Hybrid Image Stabilizer (IS) and an Ultrasonic Motor (USM). The lens includes
the LP1219 Lens Case and the ET-73 Lens Hood.
Normal and Close-up Photography: The lens can be used as a
medium telephoto lens for normal photography such as portraits. Close-up photos
up to 1x (life-size) magnification are possible. The minimum focusing distance
from the subject to the focal plane is approximately 12". The working distance
from the front of the lens to the subject is about 5.5"
Ultrasonic Motor (USM): The EF 100mm lens is equipped with an Ultrasonic Motor (USM) for silent, high-speed auto focusing.
Hybrid Image Stabilizer (IS): The lens is equipped with
Canon's new Hybrid Image Stabilization technology. Hybrid IS effectively
compensates for both angular and shift camera shake during close-up shooting.
The Image Stabilizer provides the effect of having a shutter speed about 4 stops
faster during normal shooting. You can turn the Image Stabilizer on or off using
the switch on the barrel of the lens.
Focusing Ring: Regardless of whether you're in manual or auto focus mode, the focusing ring always works. This means you can auto focus on a subject, but manually change the focus by turning
the focusing ring.
Focus Mode Switch: You can switch between Auto Focus and
Manual Focus using the two-way AF/MF switch on the barrel of the lens.
Focus Range Switch: The range switch lets you set the
focusing range to one of three settings: Full (1.0' to infinity), 1.0' to 1.6', or 1.6' to infinity, depending on shooting conditions. The setting can reduce the overall auto focusing time.
Lens Hood: The lens kit includes the ET-73 lens hood to keep
unwanted light out of the lens, and protects the front of the lens. The hood can
be reverse-mounted on the lens for storage. When installed, the hood adds
approximately 3" to the overall length and 9/16" to the overall diameter
of the lens.
Optional Tripod Mount: The optional tripod mount (Tripod
Mount Ring D) allows you to quickly switch the camera between landscape and
portrait positions while it is mounted on a tripod.
Optional Filters: The EF 100mm lens has a 67mm mounting thread on the front of lens for attaching screw-on type filters.
Attaching Ring Lite Flash: If you are installing the Canon
MR-14EX II Macro Ring Lite to this lens, the
Macrolite Adapter 67 is required. The same adapter is required if installing
the MT-24EX Macro Twin Lite.
