The Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro USM is a lens designed for close-up photography. This is a step up in quality from the basic Canon EF 50mm f/2.5 Compact Macro, incorporating new features such as USM internal focus for quick and silent focusing without lengthening the lens. Full 1:1 magnification can be achieved, allowing shots nearly 4 inches from the target to remain in perfect focus and objects as small as a penny to fill the frame. Further magnification can be achieved with the addition of an optional MR-14EX Macro Ring Lite or MT-24EX Macro Twin Lite. The circular aperture design keeps the focus on the subject and naturally blurs the background creating a highlighting effect. This lens is optimized for digital SLRs, and uses coatings to cut reflections and flare.
