Hello Photographers, Tom here from Cameras Direct with another Canon macro lens review.

Today we’re going to have a look at Canon’s EF-S 60mm f/2.8 USM Lens.

This is an EF-S lens from Canon, so that means it will not go on full frame digital SLR like a 6d or a 5d.

So it is designed for crop sensor cameras. If you do put this on a crop sensor as it’s designed, it then becomes a roundabout a 90mm f 2.8 macro lens.

This is ideal for macro photography, particularly of say insects or anything thing where you don’t want to be too close to get your 1:1 life-size macro photo.

Of course being a macro lens it gives you one to one life size macro. Another advantage of this lens is it’s metal mount.

Of course so nicely constructed. It has a ice large manual focus ring and at a friction-less manual focusing ring as well.

You can then actually touch up the focus manually while the AF switch is on. The 60mm also has an USM motor in here, so it’s very quiet and fast and accurate, so that again makes it ideal for photographs insects or reptiles or things like that where you just don’t want to make any noise.

When you do focus as you can see the lens does not change its size so the working distance when you are at 1:1, will not change.That’s very important again your insect and and sorta animal or reptile photography. So great little lens.

Like all macro lenses from Nikon or Canon they are very very sharp. It’s a flat field design so it means that from the center to the edges, right to the corners of your image, these lenses give spectacularly sharp results – particularly as you stop them down to around about that f/5.6 or f/8 and that’s where you’ll get the best results – especially out of something like this here.

So folks, if you want to do some product  photography photographs, flowers, jewelry, insects, snakes, lizards, whatever you want, this little macro lens designed for crop sensor Canon DSLR’s is a ripper and price wise, it’s very very attractive as well.

Filter wise, it’s a 52mm UV filter on there and we do recommend that of course to protect the glass. So folks come into to our Cameras Direct store, our new store at Biggera waters or shop online.
