Canon 100mm f/2.8 L IS Macro - Photos & Videos

Camera - Canon 1DX




This is my second maro lens (first was Canon 60/2.8 macro, I used it with Canon 60D for 3 years).
What can I say about this lens? It's sharp like 60/2.8 (I don't see big difference in picture resolution, maybe at f/2.8, 100/2.8 IS is sharper), it has IS and it's weather sealed.
There's a lot of reviews of this lens and my english is not good enough, so watch my photos and videos ;)


Video (max quality, ALL - I, 30 fps):

ISO tests (6 shots).
Because quality of these pictures are not the same as on my pc (due to high compression), you can download two RAW files (with iso 10000 & 12800):

Here you can compare iso between 4 cameras on the image comparison tool (there's 7D mark II):

Canon 1DX + Canon 300/4 IS - Photos

There's a lot of reviews and my english is not good enough to give you my personal thoughts about this camera and lens, but so far I did some tests and I noticed big difference between picture and video quality (I am still using APS-C camera - Canon 60D and I took many photos and videos too with Canon 300/4 IS and Canon 60/2.8 macro lens).
I really like low noise at high iso (2000 is barely visible, 6400 is still good when you reduce noise a little bit), better DOF and picture quality (sharper, better images, very low level of moire).
What I don't like? Sensor is a "dust magnet", so after a thousands of shots, I see black spots at f/13, especially in the corners (which is very annoying in macro with my second lens - Canon 100/2.8 IS).

I want to show you unboxing video and continous shooting test (with 100/2.8 L Macro IS too) and photos (with exif data).







Aperture - f/5.6; shutter speed - 1/2500; iso 1250 (raw to jpg in fsviewer, no correction, neutral settings)

Aperture - f/5.6; shutter speed - 1/2500; iso 1250 (raw to jpg in fsviewer, no correction, neutral settings)

Aperture - f/5.6; shutter speed - 1/8000; iso 1250


Sample video
First two scenes (fire) recorded without external microphone, handheld (aperture at f/5.6). 
Last two scenes (cyclists) with Rode Video Mic. I used camera rig (aperture at f/5.6 in the first scene & 4.0 in the second scene). 
IS on + software stabilization. No sharpening etc. I changed only level of brightness & saturation (even on neutral settings, color - especially red, is too saturated).
In my opinion, image stabilizer in this lens is not good enough for videos and this feature is better in the latest lenses (like 70-200/2.8 IS II).

- high level of vignetting (only on full frame)
- poor picture quality in corners
- slower autofocus
