You can get great close-ups using a prime lens, but true macro photography is a totally different beast, with its own lighting and stability requirements. The Canon Self-lit Macro Lens aims to make it a bit less intimidating for amateur shooters. In a world's first, it has a ring-style light built right into the lens, helping to illuminate challenging subjects and increase shutter speeds. It can focus to infinity during normal operation, has a 1.2x macro mode for stunning magnification, and uses a Hybrid IS system to help keep the image sharp. With a focal length of 28mm and the ability to shoot at f/3.5 wide open, it's a versatile piece of kit for EOS M owners.
