The short editorial description of Canon EF-S 60/1:2.8 Makro USM Black

EF-S 60/1:2.8 Makro USM

Canon EF-S 60/1:2.8 Makro USM Black:
The official marketing text of Canon EF-S 60/1:2.8 Makro USM Black as supplied by the manufacturer
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.

Test NotesAs you'd expect from a prime, the Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 macro delivers superior sharpness over a wide range of aperture settings. Wide open, its just a little on the soft side, but just one stop down at f/4, it's "prickly sharp," and very sharp...
ePHOTOzine lens guru, Gary Wolstenholme, tests the canon EF 60mm macro lens to see how close he can go.At £355, is this good value for money or are there better lenses out there that can do the job and cost less? In this test, we aim to find out.This...

Bottom line Canon shooters looking for a relatively inexpensive introduction to macro photography should certainly add this lens to their list of lenses to consider. It will suit those especially who will gain from the compact, lightweight design, and fast focusi...
This is Canon’s first macro lens dedicated to APS-C sized sensors, so is geared towards cameras such as the EOS 30D or 350D. The focal length on a Canon camera is extended by 1.6x, so this lens offers the equivalent of 96mm. Because it...
In a Nutshell This Canon 60mm macro is optically spectacular. It works well and has no downsides, other than being only 60mm and only working on the 1.6x sensor cameras. If you really want to use this for macro, for only about $80 more the Canon 100mm...
I have to admit, when the Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro USM Lens was announced, I was less than enthusiastic over a new short focal length macro lens compatible only with the EF-S lens mount Digital SLRs. But now that Ive had a chance to use it, I think...
Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro USM reviewThis new EF-S mount Macro lens from Canon is designed to be used with the APS-C sized sensors of the 300D, 350D and 20D cameras only. With a crop factor of 1.6x it gives an equivalent length in 35mm terms of 96mm...
When I purchased the EF 100mm f/2.8, I put aside the 50mm. You can?t beat a lens that goes all the way to life-size, especially when you add internal focusing and much faster and quieter autofocus. I also worked with the extraordinary MP-E 65mm f/2.8 1...
The Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 USM macro is a fairly recent addition (2005) to the Canon lens line-up. The EF-S naming refers to Short-back focus design featuring a protruding rear element which requires a special mirror design to avoid a collision of mirr...
Bottom line The Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 USM macro is a high performance lens with next to perfect resolution figures across the image frame which is only limited by diffraction effects. Lateral CAs as well as distortions are not field relevant. Unfortunately there'...
The Canon EF-S 60/2.8 Macro lens enables photography down to a magnification of 1:1, which means that you can fill the final RAW or JPEG file with a subject the same size as the APS-C sensor inside a Canon Digital Rebel, i.e., 15x22mm. A Popular Photog...
