A compact, affordable macro lens with a large aperture of f/2.8, featuring hybrid IS that makes it possible to capture beautiful macro shots by hand. The 56mm focal length (35mm-film equivalent) helps you to achieve natural-looking images, and can provide a beautiful bokeh effect not only when photographing tiny subjects such as insects, flowers and accessories, but also for food photography and portraiture. The two LED Macro Lites at the front of the lens can be individually controlled for power on/off as well as light intensity, great for effects such as adding shadows to emphasize a subject's dimensionality as well as for removing unwanted shadows. The lens is driven by STM motor, realizing speedy, extremely quiet AF ideal for movie shooting - even for macro movies of small insects and animals going on with their everyday lives.
