Hot on the heels of Canon’s announcement of its Hybrid IS technology comes the first lens to sport this feature and, to no great surprise, it’s a 100mm F2.8 macro. The Hybrid IS system is claimed to provide up to 2 stops stabilization at 1.0x magnification, and up to 4 stops at longer shooting distances. This, Canon’s third-generation EF 100mm F2.8 macro lens, is also the first to gain the flagship ‘L’ designation and comes with such goodies as ultra-low dispersion glass elements, a nine blade circular aperture and weathersealing. The Canon EF 100mm F2.8L IS USM macro will supplement, rather than supplant the existing 100mm F2.8 USM macro. I plan to buy as soon as it is available in India.

  1. Yes Shiva,
    I am planning to buy this lens as soon as it is available. L series, sealed body,Hybrid IS, IS during macro operations are all plus points. Changed filter diameter to 67mm means I need to buy new adapter for my MT-24EX that I feel is the negative point.
