Product Details

Main Features
  • 60 mm
  • f/2.8 USM
  • Canon EF/EF-S
A thoroughly modern design that's optimized for select Canon EOS digital SLRs. Its angle of view is equivalent to a 96mm lens on a 35mm camera, with a floating optical system that can focus down to full life-size (1: 1) magnification. Inner focusing, driven by a silent and powerful ring-type USM, means the lens' overall length never changes during focus. This lens is a wonderful multi-purpose lens that's equally at home shooting macro shots, portraits or available-light photos.

Canon EF-S macro lens 60mm is rated4.94 out of5 by16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing lens!My wife and I own 2. We have been usingthem for about 6 months and it is quickly becoming our favorite lens to use.For an EF-S lens, this thing is amazingly sharp. I have used it on my XTi, T1i and 40D and it makes use of each and every pixel your camera can squeeze out! I shoot mainly wildlife but macro photography is quickly replacing that. I would have to say it is near "L" quality, if not "L" class quality. Truly a hidden gem in the Canon lens lineup. If you get this lens you will not be disappointed!!!My only regret is that it does not have IS, but for the quality of images you get, you can overlook that very quickly. It is fast and very easy to use. I like how you can adjust the focus even when it is in AF mode.This lens brings home the belief that glass is better than camera body. My 40D and Xti both have 10.1 megapixel sensors and let me tell you, this lens is AMAZING!!! You just cannot believe the detail and sharpness that it gives your photos. You will soon forget about upgrading your camera body because you think you need more detail in your photos. Try this lens first!!! A must have for any photographer!

If you are even slightly interested in macro photography, then you need this lens.For the quality of images you get, the price is right. It's a great walk-around prime lens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply AmazingThought I'd test this as a walk around lens for a car event I had to shoot. My main camera was set up with a tripod so I had this on my 2nd camera which is a 30D. I am completely surprised at the images I was able to capture with only using available light in the showroom. Sharp, fast, great bokeh when I wanted it and light weight. I've never used this lens before other than shooting macro shots so this was a great opportunity to try it in a walk around shooting fashion. I will definitely be using this more, just wish it was compatible with my 5D Mark II.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality, cheaper priceI bought this lens yesterday for my t5i and I was skeptical at first. I have never bought a macro lens before and I wasn't really sure what to expect. After playing around with it for a while and taking multiple test shots, I started to get a hang of it. The 1:1 shots are incredibly crisp and sharp and I was genuinely surprised at how detailed they were. Normally to get a shot like that I would have had to do some cropping in post, but now I don't have to. The lens also functions well as a regular prime lens too. The autofocus is exceptionally fast, probably the fastest that I own. My only complaint is that sometimes the AF is a little slow if you are up close. What I mean by that, is that the lens zooms in then out, and then steps into focus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really like it.This is my first macro lens. It's my first experience with macro. I'm teaching myself to use it. I really like the lens. I've gotten some great pictures. I use it with my Canon Digital Rebel XTi. It definitely has taken some getting used to as it does not zoom like the standard lens that came with the camera. What you would normally use as the zoom is actually the focusing ring. Once I got used to that, it was pretty easy to use. It takes amazing detail shot, as long as you get the subect to hold still long enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this LensThis lens is great for macro as well as portrait photos. I've had mine for 3 years now and use it all the time. I love photographing wildflowers and nature in general and this lens has been the best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Lens.I'm so glad I got this lens. Its great for portraits and of course macro photography is wonderful with this lens. The back ground blur is so pretty with this lens. It hasn't left my camera since I purchased it 2 weeks ago. no IS, but i dont find it's an issue with handheld photo's. however you will need to stablize the lens when doing actual macro photography

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So sharp I cut myself.........8-)This IS the sharpest lens I currently own. I took some portraits of the grandkids last year with this and was just blown away by the sharpness of the images.Our granddaughter has very fine hair and this lens imaged it perfectly. It gives me a lot of confidence that it won't let me down. As long as my skills are up to par, the lens will produce, produce and produce. The only drawback is that my wife doesn't like me to use this lens to take pictures of her - shows too much detail.....LOL !One of these days I'll also get the 100mm f/2.8 macro.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent ValueThis lens is a 3-in-1 Grand Slam value!I have owned and used this lens for approximately 2 years. This excellent prime lens is my work horse providing a near normal field of view for work as a normal lens, while also having a nearly perfect focal length for portraits; and (of course it is an excellent performer as a macro lens having true 1:1 reproduction capability.Build quality is very nice, with a solid feel. The auto-focusing is fast and spot on while having full-time manual focusing available makes tweaking the final shot a breeze.The fast f/2.8 glass is super sharp allowing me to create impressive images whether enlarged and printed or posted on-line.
