High performance macro telephoto with excellent versatility.
With it's telephoto specification, life-size close-ups can be taken from further away without risk of disturbing the subject. Ideal for wildlife.
The EF 180mm f/3.5L Macro USM is a telephoto macro lens which offers a maximum magnification of 1.0x. Life-size close-ups can be taken from further away, and at less risk of disturbing the subject (ideal for insects and other wildlife). The internal floating focusing system minimizes fluctuations in aberrations caused by changes in focusing distance. This ensures the lens is razor sharp from 1.0x to infinity.
Incorporates Canon’s highest standards of precision engineering and optical superiority. The L-series is Canon’s flagship professional lens range, combining outstanding image definition and ultimate performance with all-weather construction to prevent dust and moisture ingress.
Canon’s ring USM auto focus system employs ultra-sonic frequency vibrations for fast, accurate and virtually silent operation. Full-time manual focus override, via a large ring that does not move during auto focus, allows photographers to fine-tune focusing instantly.
Super Spectra coatings help ensure accurate colour balance and high contrast, while suppressing flare and ghosting by absorbing stray light that might be reflected off internal lens elements and image sensor.
The lens comes supplied with a lens hood and a soft case.
