The Canon EF-M 28mm f/3.5 Macro IS STM is a truly unique macro lens that features a controllable LED macro light, 13mm / 1.3cm minimum focus distance, image stabilisation, and a magnification ratio of 1:1. The lens features an EF-M mount and is only compatible with Canon's EOS M mirrorless cameras.
Minimum focus distance of 13mm / 1.3cm and a 1.2x Super Macro mode
With a minimum focus distance of just 13mm the EF-M 28mm f/3.5 Macro IS STM lens will be able to capture spectacular close-up and macro shots. Additionally, a Super Macro mode boots the magnification by 1.2x, so you can enlarge objects beyond life-size.
Built-in controllable LED Macrolight
2 built-in led's sits at opposite ends next to the front element and provides ample light fill to remove shadows, which can often be cast by you and your equipment, or to function as the main source of light. The LED's are powered by the lens mount, and be controlled in 4 different modes (off, only left, only right, or both on) to suit your requirements.
3.5-stop Image stabilisation
a Hybrid image stabilisation rated at 3.5-stops greatly helps to keep fine details sharp so you can enjoy the full potential of the Canon EF-M 28mm f/3.5 Macro IS STM Lens.
Converging lens barrel
the lens features a smart barrel design with a converging lens barrel, that is designed to minimise shadows caused by the lens itself. Additionally, this also provides surface contact points for steady shooting, so the lens can be used at a steep angle of 53 degrees from the surface on which the object is placed.
