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

Never knowingly undersold

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.
