Canon EF-M 28mm f 3.5 IS STM MACRO
A compact prime designed for macro photography, the Canon EF-M 28mm f/3.5 Macro IS STM is a 44.8mm-equivalent lens designed for APS-C-format EF-M-mount mirrorless cameras. Characterized by its 1.2x maximum magnification and 3.7″ minimum focusing distance, this sleek lens is further distinguished by its integrated Macro Lite LED to provide additional illumination to close-up subjects. Aiding its ability to reproduce small subjects at greater than life size, the optical design incorporates one UD element and two aspherical elements to reduce chromatic and spherical aberrations in order to provide a high degree of sharpness and clarity.
Benefitting the optical attributes is a Hybrid IS image stabilization system that serves to minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper results when working handheld and in difficult lighting conditions. A lead screw-type STM stepping motor also benefits handling by producing fast, smooth, and quiet autofocus performance to suit both stills and video applications. This AF motor can be manually overridden at any time by turning the dedicated focusing ring for making fine-tuned adjustments. Additionally, suiting the sleek stature of the Canon EOS M-series of cameras, this Canon EF-M 28mm lens also sports a lightweight form factor and retractable design.
Minimum focus distance of 13mm / 1.3cm and a 1.2x Super Macro mode
With a minimum focus distance of just 13mm the Canon EF-M 28mm f/3.5 Macro IS STM lens will be able to capture spectacular close-up and macro shots. Additionally, a Super Macro mode boots the magnification by 1.2x, so you can enlarge objects beyond life-size.
3.5-stop Image stabilisation
a Hybrid image stabilisation rated at 3.5-stops greatly helps to keep fine details sharp so you can enjoy the full potential of the Canon EF-M 28mm f/3.5 Macro IS STM Lens.
Built-in controllable LED Macrolight
2 built-in led’s sits at opposite ends next to the front element and provides ample light fill to remove shadows, which can often be cast by you and your equipment, or to function as the main source of light. The LED’s are powered by the lens mount, and be controlled in 4 different modes (off, only left, only right, or both on) to suit your requirements.
Converging lens barrel
the lens features a smart barrel design with a converging lens barrel, that is designed to minimise shadows caused by the lens itself. Additionally, 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.
