The Canon 100mm f/2.8L IS Macro is a medium telephoto lens, available for rental at Camera Hire. This L series lens is primarily designed to be used for macro photography, with a 1:1 magnification function. 100mm is an excellent focal length for shooting excellent close-up macro images. Additionally, the Canon 100mm f/2.8L lens is an excellent choice for moderate telephoto portraiture, with quick autofocusing, excellent subject isolation and delightful bokeh characteristics. A ring type USM ( Ultrasonic motor ) focusing system is used, with instant manual override for delicate adjustments. The 100mm macro is compatible with all EF mount camera systems.
This lens is the L series upgrade to the earlier 100 f/2.8 Macro lens, providing even greater sharpness, contrast and colour rendition. The addition of IS ( Image Stabilizer ) to this lens greatly enhances it’s versatility, especially in situations such as macro photography where reduction of camera shake is critical to attaining super sharp imagery. Super Spectra coatings help to ensure colour reproduction is accurate, and minimise high contrast front lit subjects from causing ghosting and flare. For the Canon user looking to shoot moderate focal length Macro images, or simply medium telephoto portraiture, without stepping up to the bulk of a 70-200mm zoom this could be the ideal lens for you. Camera Hire has three of these lenses in stock available for hire now.
