Canon EF-M 28mm f/3.5 Macro IS STM Overview

A compact prime designed for macro photography, the EF-M 28mm f/3.5 Macro IS STM from Canon is a 44.8mm-equivalent lens designed for APS-C-format EF-M-mount mirrorless cameras. Characterized by its 1.2x maximum magnification and 3.7" minimum focusing distance, this sleek lens is further distinguished by its integrated Macro Lite LED to provide additional illumination to close-up subjects. Aiding its ability to reproduce small subjects at greater than life size, the optical design incorporates one UD element and two aspherical elements to reduce chromatic and spherical aberrations in order to provide a high degree of sharpness and clarity.

Benefitting the optical attributes is a Hybrid IS image stabilization system that serves to minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper results when working handheld and in difficult lighting conditions. A lead screw-type STM stepping motor also benefits handling by producing fast, smooth, and quiet autofocus performance to suit both stills and video applications. This AF motor can be manually overridden at any time by turning the dedicated focusing ring for making fine-tuned adjustments. Additionally, suiting the sleek stature of the Canon EOS M-series of cameras, this lens also sports a lightweight form factor and retractable design.

A normal-length prime, this macro lens is designed for EF-M-mount APS-C-format mirrorless cameras and provides a 44.8mm equivalent focal length.
One Ultra Low Dispersion element is used to control chromatic aberrations and two aspherical elements are also featured, including one double-sided aspherical element, to minimize spherical aberrations for increased clarity and sharpness.
A maximum magnification of 1.2x is afforded for slightly greater-than-life size shooting at a minimum focusing distance of 3.7" using the Super Macro setting.
The built-in front-facing Macro Lite LED can be used to provide additional illuminations to subjects when working at close distances. The light can be configured to illuminate only the right or left side, or both sides, in order to produce greater visual depth and reduce shadows caused by the close proximity of the lens to the subject.
Hybrid IS image stabilization minimizes the appearance of camera shake for sharper imagery when shooting handheld.
Lead-screw-type STM stepping motor offers fast, quiet, smooth, and accurate autofocus performance that is ideal for video recording as well as still shooting.
Full-time manual focus mode (AF+MF) lets you instantly switch to manual focus control in AF mode for making fine-tuned adjustments.
Compact and lightweight overall form factor is aided by a retractable design for a more sleek profile during travel and storage. Additionally, the acute lens top shape, which is narrower than the main lens body, also helps to prevent casting shadows on close-up subjects.
Included lens hood is threaded to accept 43mm filters.

question

One reviewer suggested this produces 27 lux at one ft using their phone light meter- can anyone verify?
Asked by: Grant
That seems pretty close. I don't have great confidence in the precision of the HoldPeak HP-881C I used to take these measurements, but with both LEDs on, I got 25.5 lux on full power, 12.9 at low power and with one LED on, 13.1 and 6.4 lux. Measuring at 1ft as you suggest.

Is there a difference between the lens only lens and the lens with the lens care kit? They are priced the same so just want to be sure it's the exact same product.
Asked by: William
Unless there has been a new gray market development of which I am unaware, the lenses are identical. B&H to my knowledge does not deal in gray market product. Canon controls the price B&H can charge so they can't give a discount but they can throw in a freebie like a lens care kit. Why the bare lens and the lens with a freebie are listed simultaneously on their web site is beyond me.

will this lens work with my M10?
Asked by: Richard
Sorry, I am a novice. I would be afraid to answer your question, get it wrong and you buy the wrong lens because of me but B&H is a great vendor. They have cheerfully exchanged for me in the past for brilliant moves like ordering a Canon mount when I needed the lens for a Nikon with no restocking fee.

Will this work with my Canon Rebel T6?
Asked by: Peggy
No, the Canon EF-M 28mm f/3.5 Macro IS STM Lens will not work on the Canon Rebel T6. That 28mm Canon lens is specifically made for the Canon mirrorless M cameras, and at this point their are no adapters available EF-M to EF-S.
