Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro USM

efs60_28macro_usm
Review Date: May 27, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Excellent build quality, sharp, vivid images. Much cheeper than Ef-100 macro.
Cons:
Slow autofocus but then again it is a macro lens! Only EF-S mount.

I have had this lens for a while but only really started using it with anger lately. It's wonderfully sharp. Build quality is excellent and the lens is fairly heavy. Quality feels solid, much better than other lenses I have such as EF-50mm f1.8.

Takes good portraits as the DOF is excellent.

I've used it successfully with a variety of extension tubes and the AF worked consistently with them all.

I find the autofocus is a little slow and the lens can hunt around a bit when trying to focus on small objects but I usually use MF mode when shooting macro anyway.

I've posted a couple of shots to show the quality and will add more soon. All I need now is a ring flash!

Look under the Macro section.

Pros: Love it. See previous review.
Cons:

So, I've been using this lens for about 12 months now and love it! Sharp, light and excellent quality.

Works wonderfully with 1.4x extender.

Pros: Absolutely Love this lens. It's a fantastic lens and gives 10/10 results every time.
Cons:
Nothing but minor gripes

Got this in the U.S so it worked out half the UK price.

What's to say? It's a fantastic balance between weight and length but gives A+ results every time in almost all conditions. It's easy to carry as a day lens. Brilliant lens for close work. I've even has some good results with extension tubes.

Would be better if f/2.8 but you pay the premium for that! Minimum focus is 1.4M which is i tad too far but it is a tele lens so it's not that bad.

Works wonderfully with 1x4 II extender. AF is only about 15% slower and + 1 stop doesn't make a slight bit of difference outdoors.

I'll post more pics as I get chance. Please check back

On the whole I can't recommend this enough.
