The short editorial description of Canon EF 180 3.5LU MAC Black

EF 180 mm f3.5 L Macro
Canon EF 180 3.5LU MAC Black:
The official marketing text of Canon EF 180 3.5LU MAC Black as supplied by the manufacturer

This telephoto macro lens is capable of close-ups up to 1X without any adapter. It is ideal for photographing insects and small animals, where a long working distance is desirable, as minimum focusing distance is 0.48m. Three UD (Ultra-low Dispersion) glass lens elements (2nd, 4th and 11th) correct secondary spectrum and ensure sharp definition at all subject distance. By employing floating construction, lens extension is reduced and f value fluctuation is minimized. A ring USM (Ultrasonic Motor) provides silent AF and full-time manual focusing. As the lens length does not change during focusing, accessories such as Macro Ring Light at the front end of the lens, can be easily operated. Maximum magnification can be increased either 1.4X or 2X by using Extender EF1.4X or EF2X.

Lens system
Focal length range (f-f)
Measure of how strongly the system converges or diverges light. For an optical system in air, it is the distance over which initially collimated rays are brought to a focus. A system with a shorter focal length has greater optical power than one with a long focal length; that is, it bends the rays more strongly, bringing them to a focus in a shorter distance.For an optical system in air, the effective focal length (f and f′) gives the distance from the front and rear principal planes (H and H′) to the corresponding focal points (F and F′).
