Canon EF 50mm f/2.5 Macro Lens

Product Summary


The EF50mm f/2.5 Compact Macro lens is ideal for users just starting out on macro photography and does not want to invest too much on lenses right away. However it has several drawbacks which make it unsuitable for serious photographers. It does not have USM which makes it a bit noisy during focusing and also slower. Nevertheless the lens is inexpensive and can also be used to shoot standard portrait shots while it doubles as a standard zoom lens. Available at Amazon | Adorama | B&H
