Using this ring, you can change the shape and character of the foreground and background bokeh paving way for some creative, unique-looking shots. There is also another Control Ring available on the lens which can be programmed to adjust shutter speed, lens aperture, exposure compensation, etc.

For faster and better accurate Auto-focus, Canon has equipped this lens with dual independent Nano USMs motors. The RF100mm F2.8 L MACRO IS USM lens features dust and weather-resistant construction in the lens mount, switch panel, and all rings. The fluorine coatings on the front and rear help you to easily clean smudges and fingerprints off the glass.
