EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro USM
The best thing about the EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro USM is that it has a floating focusing mechanism which allows it to create sharp images regardless of the focusing point. It creates life size (1:1) images and has a focal length of 60mm (equivalent to 96mm on a 35mm format). Inner focusing elements means the lens is less intimidating to your small subjects and a ring-type USM (ultra-sonic motor) further makes the lens quiet during focusing.
A thoroughly modern design that's optimized for select Canon EOS DSLRs. 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 and EOS Digital Rebel XT cameras (as of February 2005).
