The RF 100mm F2.8L MACRO IS USM is an outstanding lens for professionals and keen photo enthusiasts alike for specific shoots in macro and portraiture. Thanks to a class-leading 1.4x macro magnification and a variable Spherical Aberration Control, this lens is even more versatile and capable than the previous generation EF macro lens.

Incredible 1.4x magnification

Ideal for handheld macro, the lens gets closer than ever before while a flattering focal length of 100mm makes it ideal for portraits.

Adjust soft focus and bokeh

A variable Spherical Aberration Control ring can be used to adjust the look of the Bokeh while applying a flattering soft-focus effect.

Outstanding image quality

A 9-blade iris and fast f/2.8 maximum aperture offers great creative opportunities and stunning image quality, even in low light.

Advanced stabilisation

Designed for assured handheld shooting, a Hybrid Image Stabilizer gives great confidence with up to 5-stops of compensation.

Fast, silent, precise AF

Dual Nano USM motors bring new levels of rapid and silent focusing, perfect for stills or video. The lens design suppresses focus breathing too, ensuring consistency.

No compromise construction

This L-series lens features weather-sealing and a fluorine coating on the outer lens element to guard against dust and water.

Spherical Aberration Control Ring

The RF 100mm F2.8L MACRO IS USM features a Spherical Aberration (SA) Control mechanism to specify the look of out of focus bokeh areas, both in front and behind the subject and produces a soft-focus effect on the subject itself. An additional control ring on the lens is used to govern an electronic cam that actuates the focusing and floating lens groups independently by using two Nano USMs to change their location from infinity to close-up and change spherical aberration. This alters the bokeh for a desired effect.

Hybrid Image Stabilizer

The RF 100mm F2.8L MACRO IS USM has an optical Hybrid Image Stabilizer offering up to 5-stops compensation (CIPA standard) or up to 8-stops with coordinated Image Stabilisation with a camera that has an In-Body Image Stabilisation (IBIS) system (CIPA standard and tested with the EOS R5). Due to the high magnifications found in macro photography vibrations are greatly exaggerated. Canon’s Hybrid IS tackles this by providing up to 2-stops of IS at 1x magnification (under Canon’s test conditions). The combination of this and high-speed RF communication means that this lens surpasses the best technology in the EF range. With compatible Canon cameras that feature in-body stabilisation, higher levels of compensation are possible.

Dual Nano USM focusing motor

Using two Nano USM AF motors helps drive the lightweight optical elements with speed, precision and control, in near silence – ideal for video and stills. For high speed focusing, a more compact lens design and closer focusing, a floating lens group system was used which required two focus motors. One Nano USM is used for the conventional focusing group and the other for the floating focus group allowing them to be driven independently for the SA control as well as focus breathing suppression.
