This Canon macro lens doesn’t only deliver the sharp image quality you need during close-ups: It’s also a short telephoto with a 96mm equivalent focal length. With a 1:1 maximum magnification and a 7.6-inch minimum focusing distance, it does a wonderful job shooting portraits and street scenes. A rounded, seven-blade f/2.8 aperture makes it easy to customize your depth of field and bokeh, and it works brilliantly in low light.
Twelve lens elements are divided into eight groups, and since each has been coated with Canon’s Supra Spectra coating, you won’t need to worry about ghosting or lens flare. You’ll simply enjoy high contrast color correct images, no matter what the lighting conditions.
Autofocus is driven by the Ultrasonic Motor (USM), which uses high-performance ultrasonic technology, and the internal focusing mechanism is responsive, fast, sharp, and nearly silent. A full-time manual focus override is also available whenever you need to dial in your focus.
Keep in mind that the Canon 60mm f/2.8 EF-S Macro is designed for crop-sensor cameras, and only works with Canon’s EOS 20D, EOS Digital Rebel, and EOS Digital Rebel XT. It has a 24° 30’ angle of view, and is compatible with 52mm front filters.
