Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro USM

efs60_28macro_usm
Review Date: Jun 17, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $450.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: This lens is compact, wickedly sharp, has all the attributes you'd find in a USM lens and is designed from the ground up for digital.
Cons:
Price. With quality this good, it should have a red ring around it.

On the 1.6 crop cameras, this lens fills the niche between the 50mm and 85mm lenses. It gives you a good standoff distance for portraits, and it has a true 1:1 macro capability. It has internal focussing and a 4 inch macro working distance, which helps when shooting insects. I've already got a 50mm and 90mm macro, so I speak from experience. This lens is not hype or marketing, its the real deal.
