Standard lens with perfect macro capability
Light and compact, perfect as a general-purpose macro lens or as a flexible standard lens.
Lightweight and compact macro lens for close-ups up to 0.5x (half life size). The optical system uses a floating construction for performance at all focusing distances. With a large f/2.5 aperture, beautiful background blur is possible. This multi-purpose lens is ideal for portraiture and other applications besides macro photography.
A maximum aperture of f/2.5 allows for fast, flash-free shooting in low light settings, plus excellent depth of field control.
As part of the acclaimed EF lens family, this lens features a built in AF motor to provide fast direct AF performance. The lens also includes an Electromagnetic diaphragm (EMD) which enables incredibly accurate aperture control, ensuring your chosen aperture remains accurate and constant every time.
Super Spectra coatings help ensure accurate colour balance and high contrast, whilst also suppressing flare and ghosting by absorbing light that might be reflected off internal lens elements and digital EOS sensors.
