Canon EF 100mm F2.8 L Macro IS USM

The third of three Canon EF lenses I picked up to go with the Kipon adapter, macro lenses are often good for adapting as they tend to be among the sharpest lenses a manufacturer offers.

The EF 100/2.8L definitely holds its own on the GFX with good coverage and very little vignetting (though the lens hood does introduce some). Sharpness seems very good and until I can afford the GF 110/2, this should be a very good portrait option for me along with the Summicron-R 90/2.

I’m also planning to use this lens for ‘scanning’ 120 film with the GFX so will report back on that in due course, compared to the GF macro extension tube.
