The Canon EF-S 60mm lens's angle of view is equivalent to a 96mm lens on a 35mm camera, with a floating optical system that can focus down to full life-size magnification.  This lens is a wonderful multi-purpose lens that's equally at home shooting macro shots, portraits or available-light photos. This lens is also equipped with special coatings to minimise reflections and flare.

Life-size (1:1) macro magnification

The EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro USM Lens from Canon is a telephoto prime lens and the first true macro lens of their EF-S series, made specifically for "APS-C" format Canon SLR cameras. It produces 1:1 magnification for extremely detailed close-up images and with a 35mm focal length equivalence of 96mm, it is also ideal for medium telephoto applications including portraiture. Its maximum aperture of f/2.8 is effective in low light and offers shallow depth of field control.

Ultrasonic autofocus motor

Autofocus is achieved with Canon's very best ring-type ultrasonic (USM) motor, which is fast and silent and allows you to manually override the focus at any time without switching the camera's focus mode settings. The field of focus is flat, important in macro work, and the aperture diaphragm is circular to allow more natural background highlights.

Internal focusing with floating elements

An internal focusing system prevents the lens' extension while focusing and a three-group floating element lens design results in excellent delineation at all focusing distances from life size macro to infinity. 

Super Spectra lens coatings

Canon's Super Spectra lens coatings suppress ghosting and flare and an optional lens hood (ET-67B) further reduces the incidence of flare.
