Sharp Macro Lens

M, B&H Photo
3 weeks ago
  • Excerpt: I used the EF-S 60mm Macro to take pictures of flowers at Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania. The lens worked very well and the pictures were sharp. I was using the camera hand held. I tried several different f stop settings and noticed some of the larger ones such as f2.8 to 3.5 seemed to give better results.
  • Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight

Take the 1: 1 plunge

Garry, B&H Photo
22 July 2014
  • Excerpt: Before purchasing this lens I scoured the reviews on many other Macro lenses here at BH. Narrowing it down to the Canon 60mm, 100mm, and 180mm. I really wanted to get sharp nature/butterfly photos that would reveal details that our eyes cannot see. I personally let my camera determine the exposure, Sorry!, and use the auto-focus. I also love to zoom to get my ideal shot. So since all the lenses are of high quality, I decided to get the 60mm.

Meeting expectations

Roger53, B&H Photo
6 July 2014
  • Excerpt: I've only used the product for a couple of weeks, but first results meet/exceed my expectations. My interest is in close up shots of flowers and insects. I've learned: (1) the lens does a far better job than my 17-55mm f2.8 lens (as well it should), (2) DOF is very shallow, (3) and hand-held shots are a real challenge for the 4-15" range. I think my next purchase will be a tripod/monopod because some shots will have to be manual focus (near impossible for a hand-hold).
  • Pros: Nice Bokeh

  • Excerpt: Have had the lens for about 2 weeks now and absolutely love it. Very smooth focusing, have used manual focus more than auto. Auto focus is quiet and quick.

A beautifully sharp lens.

  • Excerpt: Paired with my Canon 7D, this lens captures outstanding detail and its depth-of-field control makes it a true artist's tool. Even wide open, the images are crisp. Using it as a prime lens for video also means precise image control. The Canon EF-S 60mm f2.8 is a great lens for copying & archiving old photos, shooting macro nature shots as well as for shooting portraits.
  • Pros: Crisp Focus, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh

I think I found my new primary lens

BillMFD3, B&H Photo
20 June 2014
  • Excerpt: Purchased this lens for macro work. I already have the kit 135mm canon and Tamika 11-16mm wide angle lens for my Canon 70D. This lens looks like the perfect lens to keep on the camera unless you need a wide angle or zoom. Ive used it so far for portraits and closeups on flowers. Took me a bit of time to get used to it as you need to either have a tripod or a steady hand to get the focus during macros spot on. Color and detail on portraits are very nice and clear.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged

Fab Macro Sharp as a Tack

bassrep, B&H Photo
24 April 2014
  • Excerpt: I purchased this to replace my 100mm Canon 1: 1 for Film SLRs (about 20 years old?). This to go with my not so state of the art but very functional Canon EOS xSi which I love. I take photos of fishing flies (lures) and guitar parts as well as complete instruments. So far I am LOVING this lens. The old 100mm was very fussy about focusing macro shots. This 60mm is NOT. I can "set it and forget it" if I need some quick, down and dirty shots for the web.
  • Pros: Crystal Clear Macro Snaps, Fast / accurate auto-focus
  • Cons: NONE
