Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro USM
With a macro photography lens, you can find the tiny things in life and reveal their beauty to the world. This is something the EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro USM excels at. As a lightweight macro lens, it is well built and optically brilliant, delivering a magnification of up to 1:1 – which means subjects can appear life-size on the sensor. Compatible with EF-S lens mount DSLRs, this impressive lens can help you create beautifully sharp images – as a macro lens and as a standard 60mm fixed focal length lens. Image quality is excellent, with beautiful colour and contrast, low distortion and chromatic aberration, and superb corner-to-corner sharpness, even when wide open. This can be attributed in part to the lens’ internal focusing design and fast, quiet and accurate USM autofocus, which work to create images that are clean, crisp and stunningly detailed.
With its ability to focus life-size images onto the image sensor, the EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro USM offers true macro performance in the EF-S lens series. 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 the frame with the subject in the highest detail you require.
A world in miniature
The EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro USM works in harmony with EF-S mount EOS cameras to let you explore an exciting new photographic dimension. Nature photographers will delight in the ability to capture the intricate beauty of tiny features. With capacity to reproduce an image on the sensor as large as the subject itself, you will take your audience on a journey inside a magnificent miniature world.
Portrait photographers will enjoy working with the large aperture, which narrows depth of field and creates beautiful background blur, making your subject stand out with dramatic effect.
The EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro USM adds enormous versatility to your kit while adding little weight. Its near-silent Ultra Sonic Motor provides super-fast precision auto-focusing with full-time manual override.
Resolution and quality
Over 60 years of optical engineering has gone into producing a lens that delivers exacting picture quality standards. Canon lens technologies combine to produce high corner-to-corner resolution, brightness, contrast and balanced colour reproduction throughout all focusing distances.
Built for digital
Designed specifically for digital photography, the lens has specially shaped lens elements with Super Spectra coatings to suppress ghosting and flare, which can be caused by reflections off the camera sensor. An exclusive optional lens hood further reduces the risk of flare.
