This Macro Lens is an extreme macro lens. It is unlike any other Canon lens. It is a manual focus lens.
This is the first macro photo lens designed to achieve a high magnification greater than 1x without additional accessories. Magnification, 1 to 5 times. It is ideal for small subjects. The newly designed optical formula and UD-glass elements suppress chromatic aberrations which become apparent at high magnifications. For flash photography, Canon Macro Ringlite MR-14 or Canon Macro Twinlight MT-24 can be attached to the lens. Closest focusing distance: 0.243m at 5x magnification.
