MP-E 65mm f/2.8 1-5x Macro Photo
A unique, special-purpose macro lens that's exclusively designed for top-quality images of small objects. Starting at true life-size magnification (1x, or 1:1), the lens's manual focus ring lets you continually focus down to 5x life size at its nearest focus distance – with incredible possibilities for scientific, medical and forensic photographers. Unlike other EF and EF-S macro lenses, this lens will not focus to infinity, and it's exclusively manual focus. It can be used on any Canon EOS camera body, film or digital.
- An ideal "next step" for any macro or close-up enthusiast who feels they need to go beyond the live-size magnification limits of traditional macro lenses
- At 5x magnification, you can fill the frame with a subject the size of a ladybug or a grain of rice
- Effective for hand-held field work, when combined with either Canon's Macro Ring Lite MR-14EX, or Macro Twin Lite MT-24EX (either attaches directly to front of lens, without adapters)
- Extremely close working distances (front of lens to subject); positioning and focusing are often aided by a "focusing rail" (optional, third-party accessory) if lens is tripod-mounted – a tripod collar is included with lens
