TIPA WORLD AWARDS 2024

BEST MACRO LENS

Canon RF 100mm F2.8L Macro IS USM

While this lens bears the “Macro” designation, and offers up to 1.4x life-size magnification, the TIPA members commented that it could serve double-duty as an excellent portrait lens as well. On the portrait side, and equally applicable for macro work, a spherical aberration control ring allows for the creation of images with a soft-focus look. On the macro side, the close focus design allows for working with subjects as close as 10.2 inches (260mm) away, which, when combined with its 9-bladed diaphragm, can yield dramatic bokeh effects. Tripod-free macro work potential is greatly enhanced by the 5-stop shake optical image stabilisation in the lens, which becomes an 8-stop advantage when used with a Canon EOS R camera featuring In-Body Image Stabilisation (IBIS). The Dual Nano USM yields smooth, fast and quiet AF, plus the lens is dust and moisture resistant for protection when working in the field.
