top macro lens for Canon users

The EF 100mm f/2.8L IS USM, part of Canon’s prestigious L series, and first featuring an Image Stabilizer with angle and shift detection that is highly effective at close focusing distances.

The lens embodies Canon's highest standards of L-series optics, build quality, reliability and operability. A robust construction includes dust and moisture resistant seals to protect against harsh weather conditions.

The new Image Stabilizer designed specifically for inclusion in a macro lens. It is able to correct lens shift movement as well as the angular movement that most IS systems can correct. This provides 2-stops of correction during 1.0x magnification, increasing to 3-stops at 0.5x magnification and 4-stops during normal shooting.

A UD element within the lens design effectively removes chromatic aberration. This allows for excellent image quality with high resolution, high contrast and excellent colour reproduction

Absolutely cracking deal, OP.
Thank you very much. Just ordered.

Excellent price.

According to camerapricebuster, this is the cheapest is has ever been and over £200 cheaper than the nearest competitor:

Thanks OP. Seems great but I have just had an email after ordering saying there's been a pricing error and they can't process it but will refund unless I pay an extra £236! Anyone else had this and if so, have you been able to get them to honour the advertised price?

I've also just had this email

They have also just changed the price on the website

Hi,

Thank you for your order.

The very competitive price we had on this lens was a result of an error in the database – the price of the 100mm non-IS was set instead the normal £670.30

I’m afraid we won’t be able to ship the order as it is now and if you’d like to pay the remaining £236.30 please let me know and I can call you and take the payment over the phone, or you can transfer the money to our Paypal account. Otherwise we’ll cancel the order and refund your payment.

Regards,

jm

a real shame - poor PR Calumet !

The price is still displaying the same on the page (£434).

I'm assuming they're hoping people will pay the extra. Either way, it's a great way to get more newsletter subscribers.

I replied to them said I wasn't happy blah, blah, blah and that they should honour those that ordered. Said I wouldn't buy from them again.

Thought it might be worth a try.

They said it was too low for them to honour and they are now hopefully processing my refund.

Would have been great to get it, but never mind...

Similar thing happened with Amazon a couple years back but they honoured it! Good old Amazon...

I've had my refund.

The issue here under the SOL is they took payment, thus contract was initiated.
