New Canon Macro Lens Features Built-in Ring Light
Canon has announced the world’s first lens with a built-in macro light. This 28mm f/3.5 Macro lens actually provides the illumination for close-up subjects, helping to freeze movement, enhance color accuracy and provide a better sense of depth and dimension. It features Hybrid IS (same feature as found in Canon’s high end EF 100mm/2.8L Macro IS USM), as well STM for smooth and quiet focusing operation when taking photos, and near-silence when shooting videos.
The Canon EF-M 28mm f/3.5 Macro IS is the sixth EF-M lens for Canon’s EOS M Mirrorless system.
