Does the Canon EF 180mm f/3.5 Macro USM have IS?

I am trying to find out if there is a version of this lens that has Image Stabilization (IS). I have seen the adds in Ebay and found that athough they advertise IS, the lens looks just like the 1996 version (non-IS). B&H advertise the lens for about $1400-$1500 and clearly states that there is no IS in this lens. Does anyone know if there is IS in any late version of this lens?

No, there is not. Atleast not as far as I know :). Besides, if there was IS must have been included in the official Lens name.

Look at Sigma if you want a longer macro with IS....either the 150/2.8 OS, or the 180/2.8 OS. :)

I know, but I am afraid that I moved to Canon to have all my lenses as Canon. The way I am going, most are Sigmas. I actually decided for the Canon EF 180mmf3.5 Macro. It is too good to let is pass. IT is a big jump from my Vivitar 105/2.5 MF, that still is a great one.

Although it doesn't have IS, it is a fantastic lens, and one of Canon's sharpest of all. Sharpness, colour and contrast will wow you every time, as long as you do your part.


Mark.
