Canon's original EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro lens was widely respected for its combination of quick autofocus, sharp rendering, and impressive image stabilization that enabled more handheld work than ever before. The RF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM is its successor, and it brings with it a bevy of improvements and new features. This great video review takes a look at the lens and the kind of performance and image quality you can expect from it in practice.
