The EF-S35mm f/2.8 Macro IS STM lens, a lightweight, compact macro lens for the Company’s EF-S series*1 of interchangeable lenses for digital SLR cameras, that features a fast f/2.8 aperture and enables capture of subjects up close at life-size 1.0x magnification*2.

The first in the EF-S series to feature a built-in Macro Lite, the EF-S35mm f/2.8 Macro IS STM makes possible effortless lighting during shooting, enabling users to expand the boundaries of photographic expression for even more enjoyable image capture.

The EF-S35mm f/2.8 Macro IS STM makes possible impressive macro shooting, magnifying subjects shot up close to capture the textures and details that would be difficult to see with the naked eye of such everyday items as flowers and small objects. What’s more, the lens features a fast maximum aperture of f/2.8, enabling users to produce exquisite bokeh effects.

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-S35mm f/2.8 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 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.

*1 A lens series employing an optical system and a mechanical structure compatible with the EOS series of digital SLR cameras equipped with an APS-C size image sensor
*2 Magnification refers to the ratio between the size of the subject and its size when reproduced on a camera’s image sensor. A magnification ratio of 1.0x (1:1) means that a subject can be reproduced at its actual size on the camera’s image sensor
