Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro USM

efs60_28macro_usm
Review Date: May 30, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Sharp from open aperture, distortion-free. Fast USM for a macro lens.
Cons:
Must be stopped down for reproduction work.

Compact, fast and extremely sharp all the way from f/2.8 from close-up to long distances. This lens is also virtually distortion free and ideally suited for technical work. Fast USM AF makes it suitable also for portraits and general photography. ALso, the lens does not get longer when focusing. Additinally, the distance scale and enlargement scale are clear and detailed. A very solid short telephoto all-purpose lens that focuses down to 1:1, great for all suitable cameras.

Visible vignetting at f/2.8, virtually disappears at f/5.6. DIffraction makes the smallest f-stops less usable.
