Bright Aperture

The 35mm* standard angle of view gives you an equivalent of 56mm on a full-frame camera, making the EF-S 35mm f/2.8 Macro IS STM a fantastic walk-around lens for snapshots, street photography, portraits and anything where lots of detail is a bonus.

* Equivalent to 56mm in 35mm format.

Hybrid IS Shake Correction

Image stabilisation helps minimise blurring in an image that can occur even from small movements while taking handheld photos. Canon's Hybrid IS system helps minimise the effects of camera shake in the vertical plane (up and down), as well as when tilting or using the camera on an angle.

High-Image Quality with GMo Asperic Lens

Beautiful photos and video are created courtesy of the refined optical configuration of 6 groups in 10 elements that uses one aspherical lens. The GMo (glass molded) aspheric lens is capable of delivering outstanding image quality across the entire scene, helping to ensure a high level of detail in your shots.

Compact, Lightweight Design

The EF-S 35mm f/2.8 Macro IS STM features a tapered design which allows you to get incredibly close to even small subjects, allowing you to fill the frame with beautiful, life-sized details. Its compact and lightweight body makes it easy to bring for shots on the go, and made possible thanks to clever construction that helps to reduce the lens' overall size and weight.

Smooth Movie Servi AF with Lead Screw-Type STM

Keep your subjects in focus even when they're moving thanks to Movie Servo AF, which helps facilitate smooth video recording. The lead screw-type STM means you can focus quickly for both stills and video as well as staying nearly-silent – a key feature to help capture only the sounds you want in a video. In short, your movies are characterized by steady, near-quiet and beautiful focus transitions from one subject to another for a professional look and feel.

Circular Aperture (7 Blades)

Thanks to its 7-blade, circular aperture, the EF-S 35mm f/2.8 Macro IS STM is capable of creating gorgeous, evocative out-of-focus areas and soft backgrounds. By delivering an incredible level of control over background blur, it helps you create intimacy and intensity in your photos and videos for impactful results.
