And because everyone sees things differently, we’ll see loads of unique perspectives come through which is really exciting.” Keep an eye out for us in your News Community Media newspaper – online or in print – and to get involved just visit

  • 44.8mm (35mm Equivalent)
  • Maximum Aperture: f/3.5
  • One UD Element & Two Aspherical Elements
  • STM Stepping AF Motor

  • Super Macro Setting for 3.7″ Min. Focus
  • Built-In Macro Lite LED
  • Retractable Design for Compact Profile

The Canon EF-M 28mm f/3.5 MACRO IS STM lens with built-in led lights didn’t get much attention since it was announced. That’s a pity because it’s an interesting lens with an affordable price.

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.

Digital Life Innovator posted a small set of pictures taken with the EF-M 28mm f/3.5 MACRO IS STM and a Canon EOS M5.
