Canon has just announced an interesting new macro lens. The Canon EF-M 28mm f/3.5 MACRO IS STM lens is the first macro lens for the EOS M camera system and also the first to feature a built-in Macro Lite flash around the front lens element.
The new macro lens offers 1:1 magnification and can even deliver 1.2x magnification in a new Super Macro Mode. It features the same hybrid IS as found in the EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM lens and uses the STM stepping motor that is common in the EOS M system.
The new Canon EF-M 28mm f/3.5 MACRO IS STM lens retails for $299.99 and should be available in June 2016. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
It must get power from the camera body?
Would appear so. There is a hands on review here:
Just wondering if this lens is compatible with the EOS Rebel T5i camera?
Eric Reagan says
No. This is only for the Canon EOS M line of cameras.
