    For use with your existing camera.

    Macro lens for stunning detail

    Bring every detail into view with extreme close-up photos of flowers, insects and small objects.

    A versatile focal length for all kinds of photography

    The 35mm is a great focal length for portraiture and street photography too, giving the same angle of view as a 56mm lens on a full-frame camera.

    Up to 1x magnification

    Magnification ensures your images come out just the way you want.

    LED Macro Lite

    Capture detail with clarity, illuminating subjects using an LED Macro Lite built-in to the end of the lens. You can independently control the right and left lamps, as well as dial up the intensity for flexibility.

    Hybrid IS system

    Reduces camera shakes for smoother movies and sharper pictures.

    GMo (glass molded) aspheric lens

    Delivers high image quality across the entire scene, helps to ensure a high level of detail in your shots.

    Helps keep your subjects in focus even when they're moving. The lead screw-type STM means you can focus quickly for both stills and video.

    Full-time manual focus

      EF-S 35mm f/2.8 Macro IS STM

      When trying to do serious macro shots with any 35mm to 60mm macro lens, there will likely be some problems: With shooting so close, many live subjects will be annoyed. In addition, the picture may display a rather distorted perspective. Also, at extreme working distances of only one or two inches, most ambient light will be blocked. Canon now tries to address the latter issue with a lens featuring a built-in light. The Macro Lite seems quite bright when turned on. However, it is really only bright enough to illuminate a subject very close to the lens. Moving beyond the high magnification macro range, a stronger external illumination is still needed. Plus, if the Macro Lite is pretty much the only light source, it can create a flashlight look on reflective surfaces. The Canon EF-S 35mm f/2.8 Macro IS STM is a smoothly and silently focusing compact prime lens for cropped-sensor cameras. Image stabilization and the integrated light make the lens great for pictures of inanimate objects in a low light setting. The lens may show some barrel distortion and dimmed corners at wide apertures, but it generally delivers very sharp pictures.

      AMAZING, Best Macro Lens I’ve ever used

      This lens is amazing, the clarity and 1 to 1 replication of subject at Macro is just unbelievable. You can get the lens right up to the subject (about 2 inches by my tests). It’s a great lens for general shooting as well, and the added macro light is such a great feature to have. The price tag for this lens seems way too low for the amount of lens you get.

      Decent macro lens for EF-S mount

      There's not much of a selection of dedicated macro lenses for EF-S mount Canon cameras, and the 60mm and 100mm Canon versions are much more expensive than this 35 mm lens. Pros: -SHARP at F/8 -Capable of beautiful bokeh if shot is composed correctly. -Adjustable macro light ring built in to lens. -Lens comes with hood Cons: -DOF VERY thin at f/2.8 -a tad slow finding focus

      I use this lens for close-ups for stock photography, so the results have to be sharp. So far I've been very happy with it. The lens is fast and the results are crisp and clear. A bonus is that the lens is lightweight and easy to use. I love the light ring feature, and the stabilization feature helps because macro subjects can be a challenge to shoot clearly if they move even the slightest bit.

      Versatile and fun lens

      I love this lens. Crisp, clear pics. Macro shots are fun and interesting, but it also works well for general purpose shots. The halo light adds just enough light to highlight. 2.8 allows lots of light for great shots in low light settings. Overall, paired with 80d, a fun little versatile lens for not a lot of money.

      This lense is awesome because it comes with a light in front of the lense so it's cool for up close shots even in the dark. I wouldn't say it's the most amazing lense but you do get a lot of quality for the price.

      I love the macro light! I was first nervous to get a macro because I wasn't sure how it would perform for portraits but it's great. And super easy to land focus!

      I have only tried my new macro lens a couple times, and I'm not sure I know what I'm doing, so I can't say I'm excited about it yet - but it has the potential to be very exciting.
