With the Canon EF-S 60 mm Macro there is a further special lens only for Canon EOS APS-C-cameras. Furthermore specially constructed for macro photography. While it is not cheap, and while you can use only with APS-C-sensors: Is this lens worth the money?
Canon EF-S 60 mm 1:2.8 USM macro: great for macro photos
See my video about the Canon EF-S 60 mm 1:2.8 USM macro. I present some comparisons to show the strong or weak points of this lens – in macro use. Over and above that comparisons I show you some photos as examples of use. Main theme of that video is reviewing the EF-S 60 mm Macro, second theme is additional… the spring. While spring time is macro time!
Not the spring only, but the nature in general is a breathtaking perfomance of the thousands and millions of millions of details. Therefore springtime is an occasion to enjoy to take stirring macro photos!
EF-S 60 mm Macro passes the exam very good!
The Canon EF-S 60 mm 1:2.8 USM macro is a lens, that in view of it’s price may not be of inferiority! However, I was able to discover a great macro lens with only some and little points of poorness.
Canon’s EF-S 60 mm 1:2.8 USM macro is not as strong as the EF 100 mm 1:2.8 USM macro, but does not need to fear the comparison: The lightly weakness of the little brother is not crucial – and in my opinion: not relavant. Furthermore the aquivalent of 96 mm is an advantage for many uses. So, if you use an APC-C-camera of Canon’s EOS-series, and if you like to have a versatile macro lens, then the EF-S 60 mm Macro is a really good choice for you.
