Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 USM Macro Lens

Product information

The Canon EF-S 60mm Macro lens is a dynamic, compact, fast-focusing lens that provides dramatic detail that goes beyond the human eye.

Having an effective focal length of approximately 96mm in 35mm format, it produces breathtaking close-up results. A minimum focusing distance of just 20cm gets you super close to your subject, filling your frame with only the subject you require.

Perfectly suited to nature photography, you’ll be able to capture tiny, intricate features. With capacity to reproduce an image on the sensor that is as large vas the subject itself, you can take your audience inside a magnificent miniature world. The large aperture means it’s also great for portrait photography. You can narrow the depth of field and create beautiful background blur, making your subject stand out with dramatic effect.

The lens has specially shaped lens elements with Super Spectra coatings to suppress ghosting and flare, which can be caused by reflections off the sensor. It’s extremely light and features an Ultra Sonic Motor for near-silent operation.

Suitable for use with Canon Digital SLR cameras.

Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 USM Macro Lens 4.3 5 3 3
Brilliant Piece of Photographic Equipment The one piece of equipment that I was missing from my camera bag and now I have got it. The Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 USM Macro Lens does everything that it promised and is also fabulous for taking Portraits. Don't know how I managed without it previously. 17 June 2014
Any SLR user needs a good macro A good photographers kit should consist of a few choice pieces and a good macro is a must. That’s why in own this lens myself. The EF-S 60mm macro is an inexpensive macro lens designed for an SLR with an APS-C sensor. So the 60mm equates to a focal length of 96mm on a camera with an APS-C sensor like the 600d, 60d and 7d. A solid little lens that proves you do not need to spend over the 4-digit price mark to get unbelievable image sharpness. My only criticism is that the auto focus is a little slow but still usable, so this lens will appeal to still life photographers rather than wildlife photographers. However, if you enjoy portraiture photography then this lens is a natural choice as some of my best portraits have been taken with this lens. If this 60mm macro is not in your gadget bag, get it in there now. It won’t disappoint. 22 July 2011
Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro USM Lens I purchased this on line after being told that the lens was great for close close-up's and will blur the back ground. This type of lens I needed for closeup's of flowers etc. I am more than pleased with this lens and recommend it. Thank you John Lewis for your prompt mail order service. 25 June 2011
