Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM

Canon EF 100 / 2.8L IS USM is a truly outstanding piece of glass. It’s good at everything. I’m still amazed at how sharp, fast and accurate this lens is. This is the best Canon Lens for true macro 1:1. It has a superb image stabilization that makes this lens also great for handheld portraitshooting.
