Summary

Close-up fanatics wanting a top-quality Macro lens should consider the EF 100mm f2.8L, which works on cropped and full-frame bodies, delivers 1x magnification and boasts Canon’s first Hybrid Image Stabilisation system which counteracts both lens shift and angular motion. The 'L' build quality is dust and moisture-resistant, and the out-of-focus effects look great thanks to the f2.8 aperture and 9-blade diaphragm. A superb macro lens.
