Compact and lightweight, the lens offers unprecedented macro capabilities and includes the world’s first* built in Macro Lite, removing shadow and darkness. For one-of-a-kind shots, the lens offers both life-size 1.0x magnification and 1.2x in Super Macro mode.Bringing you closer to subjects and helping you capture intricacy and magnifying minute detail, it can focus up to 13mm.
Built-in Macro Lite
The EF-M 28MM f/3.5 Macro IS STM lens features a built-in Macro Lite which allows you to bring the lens as close as you need without compromising on light. Used to illuminate small objects up close, it can be controlled by a switch, letting you change the lighting intensity and direction on one or both sides of the Macro Lite, allowing you to create dramatic lighting, while the design reduces shadows cast by both the camera and lens
Super Macro Mode
For one-of-a-kind shots, the lens offers both life-size 1.0x magnification and 1.2x in Super Macro mode. Bringing you closer to subjects and helping you capture intricacy and magnifying minute detail, it can focus up to 13mm.
Outstanding Optical Performance
Incorporating 1 UD lens and 2 aspherical lenses, the EF-M 28MM f/3.5 Macro IS STM lens effectively corrects chromatic and other types of aberration resulting in superb optical performance in a compact design.
