Product Details

Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 USM Macro Camera Lens - 0284B002

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. Like all Canon EF-S Lenses, its use is restricted to the EOS 20D, EOS Digital Rebel and EOS Digital Rebel XT cameras (as of February 2005).

  • Focal Length & Maximum Aperture 60mm 1:2.8

          Comments about Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 USM Macro Camera Lens:

          Thought 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.

            Comments about Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 USM Macro Camera Lens:

            I 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.

            My most used lens

            By UberBunsen

            from Birmingham, Alabama

            • Macro capabilities
            • Super-sharp images

            • fixed zoom
            • no image stabilisation

              Comments about Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 USM Macro Camera Lens:

              I am an novice photographer, but I really wanted to get into macro photography, as well as candid snapshots, so I chose this lens. Being fixed lens, it has better image quality than most zoom lenses. The downfall to this, being the lack a zooming abilities! I've heard all over that a 50mm lens offers the best 1:1 ratio, but I find that a 60mm fits a 1:1 ration even better. The f-stop can be opened up to f/2.8 which isn't the widest aperture on the market, but it certainly is nice. Such an aperture also produces gorgeous, smooth bokeh. This lens has an ultra-sonic motor, and this gives it exceptionally fast auto-focus. After using a USM lens, I probably wouldn't be able to use any slow motor lenses ever again. This lens obviously provides a great lens for street photography, or even portraits, but it also allows macro photography. All you need it decent lighting and a tripod, and this lens will give you professionally sharp, incredibly detailed images. This lens is an EF-S mount, so it won't fit on a full frame body, but that's fine for me, since I shoot a 550D. My only complaint with this lens is the lack of image stabilisation. When I'm moving in super close to a tiny bug, or trying to take detailed shots of someone's eye, etc. It's very easy to shake, and with no IS, I've lost many pictures that turned out blurry. But of course, with IS, this lens would be much more expensive, and out of my price range. Overall, this lense is superb, and for sure my favorite of 3 lenses. This lens is almost always on my camera.

                  I'm 83 & not able to hunt with a rifle anymore, therefore I hunt insects & flowers close to home. This little lens on my Canon T3i meets ALL my needs, & takes a great portrait picture too! If your in the market for a true macro lens give this 1 a try. I guarantee you won't regret it.

                                My wife and I own 2. We have been using them 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!

                                  I was amazed at how beautiful the macro shots with this lens could be. I love the 2.8 aperature. I can really create some dramatic images with blurring the background of certain shots. The images are extremely crisp. This is an ideal lens for portraits with the 60mm fixed focal length. I was blown away to see the detail in bee's wings when I got a shot of one gathering pollen from a flower. This lens is a must have.

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. You will not regret getting this lens!
