The-Digital-Picture has complete its review of the brand new Canon RF 100mm f/2.8L IS USM, It looks like it’s a great lens, but there may be an issue with focus shifting, and the price may cause some buyers pause.
I consider a telephoto macro lens to be a mandatory part of my kit and always include the best available option. What is the best Canon macro lens? Focus shift aside, the Canon RF 100mm F2.8 L Macro IS USM Lens is that lens.
I didn’t see the focus shift issue coming, and this issue is my primary complaint with this lens. Precise focusing is especially important with a macro lens, and this lens falls below expectations in regards to focus shift. Again, I see no issues at f/2.8 or f/11 and narrower. Hopefully, Canon can resolve this issue completely.
With an extremely fast, high-performing AF system and an advanced image stabilization system, this professional-grade lens is capable of delivering outstanding image quality, optically outperforming all Canon macro lenses prior introduced. The up-to-1.4x magnification capability especially takes close-up imagery to a new level. Read the full review
The Canon RF 100mm f/2.8L IS USM Macro has begun shipping, but will likely be backordered for quite some time while Canon navigates manufacturing challenges.
