About Canon 60mm F/2.8

Get this Canon 60mm F/2.8 ,normally $469.00, on sale at $419.00 for a total savings of $50.00 and Shipping is free!.

A thoroughly modern design that's optimized for select Canon EOS digital SLRs. Its angle of view is equivalent to a 96mm lens on a 35mm camera, with a floating optical system that can focus down to full life-size (1:1) magnification.

Inner focusing, driven by a silent and powerful ring-type USM, means the lens' overall length never changes during focus.

This lens is a wonderful multi-purpose lens that's equally at home shooting macro shots, portraits or available-light photos. Like all Canon EF-S Lenses, its use is restricted to the EOS 20D, EOS Digital Rebel, EOS Digital Rebel XT and similar cameras.

The Canon 60mm F/2.8 is commonly used for General purpose, Landscape/scenery, Low light, Macro, Macro and portraits, Macro photography, Night photography, Portraits, Special effects, Weddings, Wildlife photos and more.The Canon 60mm F/2.8 is most used by customers who consider themselves to be a Casual photographer, Enthusiast, Photo enthusiast, Semi-professional, Semi-pro photographer among others.The Canon 60mm F/2.8 is popular because customers like the following qualities of the Canon 60mm F/2.8: Consistent output, Durable, Easily interchangeable, Easy to clean, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice bokeh, Rugged and Strong construction

Comparing the Canon 50mm and 60mm macros

I have had the opportunity to use this lens and Canon's 50 mm Macro for a week and this 60mm far outshines its smaller sibling. Because the 50mm has an extending front element, and uses Canon's standard autofocus system, it takes an age to focus, whining all the way. Most disappointing was that I had understood that the 50mm was a 1:1 macro, and in fact the markings on the front lens barrel indicate this.

I have had the opportunity to use this lens and Canon's 50 mm Macro for a week and this 60mm far outshines its smaller sibling. Because the 50mm has an extending front element, and uses Canon's standard autofocus system, it takes an age to focus, whining all the way. Most disappointing was that I had understood that the 50mm was a 1:1 macro, and in fact the markings on the front lens barrel indicate this. What I didn't know was that you had to come up with another $250 for a lens extender (with optics) to do this. For the expense of just an additional $100 in the first place this Canon 60mm 2.8 Macro focusses instantly and silently with Canon's ultrasonic focussing right down to a true 1:1. The additional focal length is also a plus, and it is one of the highest rated Canon lenses with a 9.4 Bob Atkins rating (compared to 9.0 for the 50mm).

perfect for art documentation

By

from NYC  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I use this lens to shoot paintings and drawings. I read about this model online and haven't been disappointed. Adorama does a great job with their used and refurbished offers. Never have had an issue.

Great lens for the price

By

from Chicago, IL  -  Photo Enthusiast

I used it to complete some documentation. It was very easy to work with, the results were excellent and it can also focus over a greater distance than I expected. I can't wait for an opportunity to use it outdoors. The best things were the ease of use and the fast focus.

Simply Amazing

By

from St. Louis , MO

Thought I'd test this as a walk around lens for a car event I had to shoot. My main camera was set up with a tripod so I had this on my 2nd camera which is a 30D. I am completely surprised at the images I was able to capture with only using available light in the showroom. Sharp, fast, great bokeh when I wanted it and light weight. I've never used this lens before other than shooting macro shots so this was a great opportunity to try it in a walk around shooting fashion. I will definitely be using this more, just wish it was compatible with my 5D Mark II.

Solid performing lens for my Canon EOS-M

By

from Boston, MA  -  Casual Photographer

I have a Full Frame 6D, but wanted a macro lens that would suit my EOS-M mirrorless. I wasn't interested in the larger 100mm macro, because of the ergonomics of the M (though I do have an add-on grip). The 60mm fits the bill nicely. Quick focusing, yet very useable manual focus. Sharp enough for macro, and good enough bokeh to be pressed into portrait duty. Light weight, too.

Tack sharp lens

By

from Temecula, Ca  -  Photo Enthusiast

This is a great close up lens. I've taken several shots of flowers and small insects and they have been awsome. The lens is also a good prime lens. It takes great portrait shots.

High quality, cheaper price

By

from Houston, TX

I bought this lens yesterday for my t5i and I was skeptical at first. I have never bought a macro lens before and I wasn't really sure what to expect. After playing around with it for a while and taking multiple test shots, I started to get a hang of it. The 1:1 shots are incredibly crisp and sharp and I was genuinely surprised at how detailed they were. Normally to get a shot like that I would have had to do some cropping in post, but now I don't have to. The lens also functions well as a regular prime lens too. The autofocus is exceptionally fast, probably the fastest that I own. My only complaint is that sometimes the AF is a little slow if you are up close. What I mean by that, is that the lens zooms in then out, and then steps into focus.

Love it, just what I needed to get started learning macro photography. I recommend it.
