The EF-M 28mm f/3.5 Macro IS STM is a compact prime lens designed for macro photography (44.8mm-equivalent). It has a 1.2x maximum magnification and 3.7″ minimum focusing distance. Moreover, the EF-M 28mm f/3.5 has an integrated Macro Lite LED to provide additional illumination to close-up subjects. Aiding its ability to reproduce small subjects at greater than life size, the optical design incorporates one UD element and two aspherical elements to reduce chromatic and spherical aberrations in order to provide a high degree of sharpness and clarity. And the best thing is, it costs just $299.
