Hello guys,

I want to ask about 100 mm Macro L lens. Do you find it capable of being a walkaround lens? I mean, landscape, street, etc in terms of sharpness, autofocus and IS? Or it is solely only for macro?

Also, being 11 years old, do you think Canon is cooking version II? I mean they only talk about RF lenses and I couldn't find any EF rumors.

Thanks for some insight! :)

the version II of this lens will have RF mount. All canon's R&D money is on this mount right now. To me has been very capable for landscape and portraits, not only macro.

The 100L is an excellent lens for sharpness, autofocus and IS. As a walk-around lens, though, I would personally find it too restrictive with just the 100mm focal length. I do own the 100L, but I use the EF 24-105 f/4L II as my walk-around. I'm very happy with its performance throughout the zoom range, although it's not quite as good as the 100L.

As Marcial said, the EF 100L won't be upgraded. Everything is going RF.


Image editing ok; C&C always welcome.

That kinda sucks. I didn't jump on the RF hypetrain. Shame they'll ditch DSLR...

Thank you, I will try to grab one when it's available.

Thank you. I want the longer one as I have 24-70 f/4, but need something around 100 mm and f/2.8 or lower. I will try to grab one if it will be available again.

Shame they are slowly ditching EF...

This morning I was standing in my garage watching the snow falling. I had my 80d with 100mm on thinking I might try a snowflake or two. As I stood there watching the snow I noticed a male Downy Woodpecker drop to my suet feeder. I knew he would be gone if I tried to run inside and get a different lens so I started inching closer to see if I could get a shot that wouldn't need as much of a crop. Then I noticed another bird drop to the other side of the feeder. As the feeder started to swing around I realized that it was the female. I don't think I've ever seen both of them at the same feeder at the same time.

I like the nice high key look, I’d either clone or crop out the breaks in the snow in the lower portion of the frame for just a stark white background
