Capable of capturing close-up subjects with great detail, Canon’s new EF-S 35mm f/2.8 macro lens is also the first in the series to feature built-in Macro Lights that allow users to control lighting with ease.

Capable of shooting as close as 30mm from the end of the lens to the subject, aspiring photographers can get up close to a fruit or flower for an entirely new perspective, while capturing high-quality images with beautiful background blur.

Additional technologies built into the new Canon EF-S 35mm f/2.8 Macro lens include:

• Popular 35mm focal length (56mm equivalent) and wide f/2.8 aperture

• Hybrid IS system offers up to four stops of shake correction

• Smooth Movie Servo AF with Lead Screw-type STM ensures quiet AF operation

• Full-time Manual Focus

In a first for the EF-S lens series, the new Canon EF-S 35mm f/2.8 macro lens sports built-in Macro Lights that allow photographers to carefully arrange macro lighting without using special equipment.

With built-in LED lights on each side of the lens, users can create compelling shadows on either side of a subject or adjust intensity to give images a sense of dimension.

While specialized for high magnification photography, the Canon EF-S 35mm f/2.8 Macro lens is still a versatile option for day-to-day use, easily capable of capturing portraits, landscapes or snapshots.

The Canon EF-S 35mm f/2.8 Macro lens is scheduled to be available in Canada in June 2017 for an estimated retail price of $459.99 Canadian dollars.
