The Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro USM is an EF-S-mount prime designed for APS-C-format DSLRs. This lens affords a life-size 1:1 maximum magnification along with a 7.9" minimum focusing distance, and its 96mm equivalent focal length also makes it an ideal option for portraiture. The optical design affords a high degree of sharpness and resolution across the image frame and individual elements have been treated with a Super Spectra coating to minimize lens flare and ghosting for greater contrast and color accuracy when working in strong lighting conditions.
