The Canon EF-M 28mm F3.5 Macro IS STM is a compact, innovative lens with unlimited macro possibilities. What's more, it's the first AF lens with built-in Macro Lite (LED light), to remove shadows and dark spots. Your pictures will show incredible detail.
Aside from a 1.0x life-size magnification, the lens offers a 1.2x magnification in Super Macro mode, allowing for incredible close-up photography. This will no doubt bring you closer to your subject. To help you capture even the smallest detail, the shortest focus distance is only 13mm.
Features of the Canon EF-M 28mm F3.5 Macro IS STM:
- Lens construction: 11 elements in 10 groups
- Super Macro Mode with 1.2x magnification
- Built-in Macro Lite technology
- Hybrid Image Stabilizer
- Silent Stepping Motor Technology
- Filter size: 43mm
The unique Macro Lite allows you to bring lens in as close as you need, without costing you precious light. The Macro Lite can be operated with a button, and allows you to adjust the light intensity and direction on one or both sides of the Macro Lite, in order to light small subjects from up close. The lens offers fascinating lighting options, while the design prevents the lens from casting shadows on your subject.
Super Macro Mode
The EF-M 28mm F3.5 Macro IS STM has a true (1:1) reproduction, which means that your subject will look life-size on the photo. With the Super Macro Mode and the shortest focus distance of 13mm, you can explore the finest details of your subject and blow them up.
Crisp and sharp images
In macro-photography, movements can easily spoil a picture. That's why you would usually use a tripod for this kind of photography. The Hybrid Image Stabilizer in the EF-M 28mm f/3.5 Macro IS STM is designed to minimise the effects of shakes in the vertical plane (up and down), as well as tilting or at an angle. This means you are extra flexible in responding to the movements of your subject, knowing that your macros will be crisp and clear.
Clever barrel design
So you can make the most of all available light, EF-M 28mm f/3.5 Macro IS STM is designed with a converging lens barrel, to minimise the shadow caused by the lens itself. This also provides surface contact points for steady shooting, so the lens can be used at a steep angle of 53 degrees from the surface on which the object is placed. The combination of the contact points and the use of the Macro Lite (when needed), allows you to capture detailed macro shots.
