Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro

Canon EF-S 60mm f2/8 Macro

The Canon EF-S 60mm lens has great reviews. The thing I liked about the reviews  was it seemed to be popular not just macro, but also portrait.

The price isn’t really all that bad considering what you get… right now Amazon is selling it for $429.00 + Free Shipping. Buy.com is a little less at $409.00 + Free Shipping. Dell is selling it for $419.00 + Free Shipping as well.

Here is the official Product Description:

Bring small things into full-sized view with the Canon EF 60mm macro USM lens. Macro lenses can uncover detail that would be impossible to detect by the eye and give new perspective to extremely minute subjects such as insects or the petals of a small flower, and this lens is no exception. The 60mm lens offers an angle of view that’s equivalent to a 96mm lens on a 35mm camera, along with a floating optical system that can focus down to life-size 1:1 magnification. The inner focusing system, meanwhile, is driven by a silent and powerful ring-type ultra-sonic monitor (USM), meaning the lens’s overall length never changes during focus. Ultimately, the multi-purpose lens is equally at home shooting macro shots, portraits, or available-light photos. Like all Canon EF-S lenses, this lens is restricted to the EOS 20D, EOS Digital Rebel, and EOS Digital Rebel XT cameras.
