The Canon EF-S 35 mm F/2.8 Macro IS STM is constructed specifically with macro photographers in mind, the lens has a magnification ratio of 1:1, a minimum focusing distance of 13 cm and two built-in Macro Lite LED to ensure you can shoot small subjects with the proper illumination. The lens has a bright f/2.8 aperture, and uses an advanced image stabilisation system to keep your close-up shots steady.
Bright F/2.8 Lens with 7 Aperture Blades
Using a fast maximum aperture of f/2.8, the lens allows more light to pass through to the sensor, enabling you to shoot with faster shutter speed. Combined with a shallow depth of field this make the lens an ideal choice for portraits with a defocused background, while the 7 bladed circular aperture delivers beautiful out of focus results.
35mm Diverse Focal Length
Designed for an APS-C-format DSLR the 35mm focal length makes the lens an ideal option for taking detailed shots when walking through streets, it also allows you take advantage of the macro features by getting up-close and personal with your subjects without distortion.
Front-Facing Macro Lite LED
The lens features a front facing Macro Lite LED which provides additional illumination for photographing close-up subjects like products or insects. The two sides of the LED light can be switched on and off independently for better control over your lighting.
Hybrid Image Stabilisation
Using hybrid image stabilisation the lens can minimise blurring in order to produce sharper images when shooting handheld. Canon's Hybrid IS compensates for small movements in the vertical plane as well as tilting when the camera is being used at an angle.
Smooth and Quiet Autofocus
The lens has a lead screw-type STM motor which delivers quiet, fast autofocus performance in both the stills and video modes. Autofocus tracking during video recording is improved by using a Movie Servo AF that allows for accurate movie focus.
Full-Time Manual Focus
The AF motor can be overridden at any point of time simply by turning the focusing ring. This gives you complete manual control to fine tune the focus of your shot as you compose the scene.
The lens has a magnification ration of 1:1 which allows you to capture life size images that fill the frame, making it ideal for macro photography. In conjunction with a close minimum focus distance of 13cm this means you can easily shoot close-up subjects with stunning detail.
Refined Optical Design
Using 10 elements arranged in 6 groups ensure that the lens can capture images with rich detail and edge to edge sharpness. The use of an aspherical element reduces spherical aberrations, and allows for the creation of eye-catching imagery.
