The Canon 100mm f/2.8 Macro is no longer in stock and has been replaced with the Canon 100mm f/2.8L IS Macro lens.
The Canon 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM is a medium telephoto lens, available for rental at Camera Hire. This lens is primarily designed to be used for macro photography, with a 1:1 magnification function. It features 1:1 magnification, wide aperture for low light, and Canon's Ultrasonic Motor for fast quiet focusing. 100mm is an excellent focal length for shooting excellent close-up macro images. Additionally, the Canon 100mm f/2.8 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 Canon 100mm macro is compatible with all EF mount camera systems.
Super Spectra coatings help to ensure the Canon 100mm macro’s colour reproduction is accurate, and helps prevent 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 Canon 100mm f/2.8 Macro lenses in stock available for rental now.
