Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 USM
IF YOU own a Canon APS- C DSLR and like the sound of photographing objects at true life-size (1:1), you’ll want to add a dedicated macro lens to your arsenal. Equivalent to 96mm in the 35mm format, this dedicated macro lens will enable you to capture stunning close- ups, thanks to its 20cm minimum focus distance. The inclusion of Canon’s Ultra Sonic Motor (USM) means it can focus silently on subjects, and with Super Spectra coatings to suppress ghosting and flare, in addition to full-time manual focus override, it’s not short of features for under £400. What’s more, it doubles up as an effective portrait lens and creates beautiful background blur behind subjects when it’s used at its maximum aperture. All in all, it’s an excellent dual-purpose optic for Canon APS- C users who want a lens that’ll last a lifetime with due care.
If you’d like to shoot breathtaking close-ups, this lens is a worthy contender
