Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro USM

Review Date: Jun 8, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

Pros: Very sharp, Silent, Easy manual fucusing, Usefull AF even at closest range
None so far

Only got the lens today, så I haven't shot more than 50 test-pictures yet. But first impressions are very good. I can't wait to go hunting for small bugs anf butterflies with this one.
I was surprised about the AF. I didn't expect it to work this well at closest range, but it is actually usefull, - though one wouls probably use manual focus often.
The focus-ring is wide and easy to fine-ajust since you have turn it alot at close distance.

Here are two some testshots just for fun (no postprocessing):
ISO 200, F5, 1/200 sec:
house(100% crop)
Rose (100% crop).
