A compact telephoto prime lens for EOS shooters
This portable telephoto lens from Canon is exceptional value for EOS users, providing a high-quality prime lens, brilliant in low light and with enough magnification to bring you close to your subjects. This EF 100mm f2 USM lens offers the perfect focal length for a tightly-cropped portrait, but it usable for many more applications, including sports.
A fast f2 maximum aperture - For speedy and low-light shooting
The large f2 maximum aperture of this lens allows for high-quality handheld images, even in dark conditions. By allowing more light to enter the lens, you can shoot at a faster shutter speed and eliminate camera shake. These faster speeds are also better suited to stopping fast moving subjects in their tracks, perfect for sports photography.
Ring-type USM motor
Another clear benefit of this bright aperture is the blurry backgrounds that can be created, a favoured technique of professional and novice portrait photographers.
The ring-type USM focus motor of this Canon 100mm f2 lens, provides you with autofocus performance that is suitable for both stills and videos. Focus speeds are exceptionally quick helping you to achieve sharp images easily and on top of this, the AF motor is virtually silent. This means the audio of your movies will not be full of annoying focussing sounds and you will not intimidate or distract your model during a portrait session.
