Canon 100 f/2.8 IS: non macro range IS On vs Off

Amazing IS (Image Stabilization) of the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 L IS USM Macro Lens.


First test, non macro range. All handheld, 1/10s, F9, ISO250


Left side: IS On.

Right side: IS Off


I took 5 shots first with the IS on, then another 5 with the IS Off. I then opened them all up in ACR (Adobe Camera Raw) and adjusted only the WB and Exposure/Brightness. The rest all default setting of ACR.


I then did a 100% crop before pasting them all into one image for easier comparison.


The IS test for 0.5 mag is here:
