Tamron SP 60mm f2 Macro 1:1 Di II Lens For Canon EF Features:
Designed for APS-C Sized Cameras
This lens is designed so the size of the lens’ image circle matches that of smaller-size image sensors. In the compact design, it is almost comparable to a lens offering the same angles of view in 35mm film format.
True To Life Macro Capture
This lens offers 1:1 “True” Macro ability for life-size macro capture. Or in other words, the object you’re shooting a close-up of – such as an insect or delicate plant life – is the same size as the image on the digital sensor, aka true-to-life capture.
Create Dramatic Effects
With a fast f/2.0 maximum aperture, this macro can help deliver dramatic blurred background effects.
Long Working Distance
The working distance of the lens is 100mm which should help the photographer stand a comfortable distance away from the subject to prevent, for example, scaring away a shy bug he or she is photographing. The long working distance of this 60mm Macro is also designed to prevent capturing the shadow of the lens barrel.
