Overview: The Canon EF-S 35mm F2.8 Macro IS STM lens is a
standard macro lens for Canon EOS cameras with an APS-C image sensor. When
used on full-frame cameras, the focal length is equivalent to 56mm. The lens features
a Stepping Motor (STM) for
smooth, quiet auto focus, and Image Stabilization (IS) for blur-free images.
Built-in Macro Lites: The EF-S 35mm F2.8 Macro IS STM is the
first EF-S lens to feature a built-in Macro Lite, allowing you to light the
subject of your close-up shots. There are two independently-controlled lights,
left and right, with dual brightness settings (bright and dim) to give you
plenty of lighting options. The switch for the Macro Lite is conveniently
located on the lens barrel.
Stepping Motor (STM): The EF-S 35mm Macro lens is equipped with
a Stepping Motor (STM), and an attached lead screw, that drives the focusing lens
during AF. The lens is especially
effective during movie shooting with cameras that have the Canon EOS Movie Servo AF function,
allowing quiet, smooth auto focusing.
Hybrid Image Stabilizer (IS): The lens features a Hybrid Image
Stabilizer to help minimize blurring caused by small movements when taking
handheld photos. The Hybrid IS minimizes up and down camera shake, as well as
when tilting or using the camera on an angle. You can turn the Image Stabilizer
on or off via a switch on the lens barrel.
AF/MF Switch: A switch on the lens barrel lets you select
Auto Focus (AF) or Manual Focus (MF). Full-time manual focus
allows you to manually focus with the focus ring, even while the lens is in AF
Lens Hood: The lens comes with the ES-27 lens hood which
serves three purposes:
- Blocks out damaging light, and protects the lens from rain, snow, dust,
or other elements.
- Prevents the white ring from the Macro Lites on the front of the lens
from being reflected back into your images.
- Acts as an adapter when screw-on filters are used. It has a 49mm filter
Note: When attached, the ES-27 lens hood adds
approximately 9/16" to the overall length of the lens.
Construction: The EF-S 35mm lens has 10 elements in 6
groups, including one aspherical lens. The glass-molded (GMo) aspheric lens
gives you sharp images across the entire scene with a high level of detail.
Optional Extension Tubes: The optional Canon EF12 II or EF25
II extension tubes can be uses for magnified shots.
