Magnification of up to 1.4x
The RF100mm f/2.8L MACRO IS USM is capable of getting even closer than most medium telephoto macro lenses. Finer details of the subject are beautifully captured with the 1.4x magnification.
Sufficient Working Space
RF100mm f/2.8L MACRO IS USM reduced the focusing distance to achieve the 1.4x magnification but still able to maintain sufficient working space to shoot tiny subjects that requires specific lighting.
Superior Image Quality
High image quality across the whole image. Sharp and detailed all the way to the edge of the frame.
Handheld shots of night scenes or macro that were previously not possible are now made possible with RF100mm f/2.8L MACRO IS USM’s image stabilisation of up to 8 shutter speed stops (when paired with compatible cameras).
The lens also comes with Hybrid IS. It is effective in correcting shift camera shakes, which are more apparent during handheld macro shooting.
Floating Lens Design
The two Nano USMs (Ultrasonic Motors) power the RF100mm f/2.8L MACRO IS USM’s autofocus (AF) capabilities, achieving fast accurate AF.
Each Nano USM works independently to control the focusing and floating lens groups.
The electronic floating focus control system within the RF100mm f/2.8L MACRO IS USM enables high speed control with high accuracy.
Improved Focus Breathing
Subject magnification fluctuation (focus breathing) phenonmenon happens due to focusing and is more prominent when shooting macro. At 1.0x magnification, the RF100mm f/2.8L MACRO IS USM is capable of suppressing the focus breathing at approximately 50% more than EF100mm f/2.8L IS.
Dust & Drip Resistant
Designed with a dust and drip resistant construction, RF100mm f/2.8L MACRO IS USM have sealings at all the crucial points.
RF100mm f/2.8L MACRO IS USM would perform well even in unfavourable outdoor conditions.
