Canon EF 100mm F2.8L IS Macro Review

Dustin Abbott

March 8th, 2020

Here’s a bit of irony:  the lens that has stayed in my kit the longest (nearly 10 years) is one that I’ve never reviewed…for the simple reason that it was already an old friend by the time I started doing lens reviews!  I had an open slot in my schedule, however, and decided that I would give the Canon EF 100mm F2.8L IS Macro the treatment I’ve given countless other lenses in recent years.  After nearly ten years of use (during which it has been my third-most used lens), the Canon 100L Macro still looks and operates like new, and has paid for itself many times over with product photography, food photography, weddings, events, portraits, and more.  I’m doing the video review on a Canon EOS R body, though photos in the gallery have been taken with everything from a Canon Rebel T1i to a 6D to a 5D Mark II to Canon 5D Mark IV and even some shots adapted to Sony!  Enjoy the video review of one of my favorite lens!
