Stabilized macro

Hi Leonard. Re; Stabilization on macro. I see that the IS on the Canon 100L is only worth 1or 2 stops max at close distances, & only 1 at 1:1.

Yes, and the Canon lens stabilization is much better than Nikon's, which doesn't do much at 1:1 because it only corrects for angle change and not for translation, which is the major contributor to motion blur at short distances.
