Product Overview: This item is
a macro lens that can be used for normal photography and close-up pictures up to
1:1 (or life size magnification). With the Ultrasonic Motor (USM), you can
expect fast and quiet focusing capability. This lens can be used with Canon
digital SLR cameras that can use the EF-S lenses.
Auto/Manual Focus: To shoot in
Autofocus mode, set the focus mode switch on the lens to "AF". To manually focus
the camera, set the switch to "MF", and focus by turning the focusing ring. The
focusing ring always works, regardless of the focus mode.
Normal/Close-up Picture Taking:
You can use this lens to take normal photographs or close-ups. For normal
photography, the lens can be a medium-telephoto lens equivalent to 96mm in the
35mm format. For close-ups photos up to 1x (life-size) magnification, the
minimum focusing distance is 20cm from the subject to the film plane. The
working distance from the lens to the subject is 9cm. When focusing, you can
give priority to framing or to magnification.
Distance Information: The
shooting distance scale, located on the barrel of the lens, is graduated in feet
and meters from 0.2m (0.66 ft.) to 1m (3ft) to infinity. For accurate manual
focusing on subjects at Infinity distance, look through the viewfinder while
rotating the focusing ring.
