A compact EF-S macro lens with up to 1x (life-size) magnification. It is equivalent to a 96mm lens in 135 format. Featuring an inner focusing by the third lens group, it gives high image quality throughout the entire focusing range and a 90mm working distance. Since the length of the lens does not change when focusing, it allows user to get closer to the subject without touching it. Optimized lens design and multi-coating reduce ghosting and flare that commonly occur in digital cameras. A new AF algorithm and Ultrasonic Motor (USM) make focusing faster, ensuring easy capture of even insects and small animals.
(Compatible with EOS Digitial SLR that supports EF-S lens)
