This Canon macro lens is designed for full-frame EF-mount cameras but compatible with crop-sensors. It shoots detailed close-ups at a minimum focusing distance of 11.8 inches, and excels during short telephoto and portrait applications.
Canon’s Optical Image Stabilizer minimizes camera shake at two stops during 1:1 magnification, three stops at 1:2 magnification, and four stops at all others, making it an optimal choice in low light or slow shutter speeds. Focus, whether manual or auto, is fast, quiet, and accurate (even without a flash) thanks to the Ultrasonic Motor (USM) and the internal focus mechanism. The aperture has nine rounded blades, making this lens a go-to if you like to use shallow depth of field and selective focus. If you prefer shooting handheld, you’ll appreciate its compact size.
An ultra-low dispersion element ensures that colors read clear and true while getting rid of aberrations and fringing. Canon’s Super Spectra coating takes care of ghosting and lens flare, so don’t worry about shooting in bright light. And, take advantage of the Focus Limiter when you want faster performance. Available ranges are 11.8 inches to 1.6 feet, 1.6 feet to infinity, or you can choose the full range. The filter size is 67mm, and the angle of view is 24°. This lens is also dust and weatherproof, so take it as far afield as your imagination takes you.
