Macro shots from new 100mm macro L and 70-300 L Lenses
Mar 19, 2011

Hi All

I recently purchased the 100mm L macro and the new 70-300L ..from the moment i saw the first downloaded pics i knew something wasn't quite right with the 100mmm Macro as the 70-300L at 100mm outperformed the macro lens at its min focus distance.. the 70-300L was stunningly sharp !! so after futher testing i returned the 100mm macro as it was very slightly soft .The second 100mm macro turned up a week ago... i now have the chrisp stunning sharpness i was expecting... a truely stunning lens.. out of 6 L lens i have bought this was the first bad copy ive had (tested on a 50D and 5d2 same results on both AF or MF) both these lens exhibit very similar images with the same "look" , both stunningly sharp with great contrast and colour,

if you like the images from the 100mm L macro you will love the images from the new 70-300 F4-5.6 L they have the same stunning IQ all the way to 300mm and wide open too ..go buy both or either of them!! here are 2 semi macro shots from each hand held during my testing around home
