Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro USM

Review Date: May 18, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $325.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: Superb sharpness, super fast focus, quiet, USM ring, 52mm, strong build
None that I can imagine.

This lens is amazing. It takes razor sharp pictures. It is sharp at 2.8, with no noticable distortions to the image. On the macro side, there is ultimate control over the depth of field. This can make for some difficult macros, but if you know what you are doing, you should be alright.

Instead of getting a 50 prime, go with this. You will not be sorry.

All of these photos were taken with this lens.
