The EF-M28mm f/3.5 Macro IS STM lens, a new macro lens for the Canon’s EOS M series of interchangeable-lens compact-system cameras that is the world’s first* AF-enabled interchangeable lens to be equipped with a built-in Macro Lite.
With the addition of this high-optical-performance macro lens to the expanding EF-M lens series, Canon’s lightweight, compact EOS M series compact-system cameras enable users to extend the boundaries of photographic expression for even more enjoyable image capture.

Lighting during shooting is made effortless through the use of the Macro Lite built into the left and right sides of the front of the lens barrel. Capable of one-sided or double-sided illumination and brightness control, the EF-M28mm f/3.5 Macro IS STM lets users brightly illuminate, produce shadows, or give three-dimensionality to plants, food, accessories and other diminutive subjects for enjoyable macro shooting.

The EF-M28mm f/3.5 Macro IS STM features a Super Macro Mode that makes possible macro shooting with magnification from 0.7x to 1.2x, exceeding the 1.0x magnification offered by conventional macro lenses, enabling magnified rendering of minute details and exquisite reproduction of a subject’s surface texture for rich, detailed macro images.
The lens is equipped with Hybrid IS that corrects for not only angular shake, common during ordinary shooting, but also lateral shake, which often occurs during high-magnification macro shooting, to realize image capture with minimal blur even when shooting in low-light conditions or without the use of a tripod.

* Among AF-enabled interchangeable lenses for use with interchangeable-lens cameras (Single-lens reflex and compact-system cameras). As of May 10, 2016, based on a Canon survey.
