Canon 100mm f/2.8L: Example

In spite of the blur issue with the initial sample of the 100/2.8L, I’ve decided to post this example, because it shows that the 100/2.8L has very high potential, in fact at f/8 the results look quite good in this case, especially on the left side of the frame.

Live View was used to focus on the central boulder area approximately 200 feet away. It was a challenge with the manual focus ring, typical of most autofocus lenses in manual mode, because there is very little “throw” to fine-tune focus. In this case, focus was a bit farther to the rear than intended, even though Live View was used.

Shown below is the entire frame as shot. Some crops follow, and you can view the entire f/2.8 image and entire f/8 image by downloading them.
