Our Verdict

Canon's innovative LED Macro Lite brings a new dimension to macro photography, letting you get up close with macro objects and allowing you to easily control the lighting direct from the lens.

Adding that extra light to your macro scene can make the difference between a flat and dull image to a vibrant and exciting image the LED Macro Lite on the front of the EF-S 35mm f/2.8 can be controlled so either one or both lights are on and the brightness can be set from dim to bright.

With a 35mm equivalent focal length of 56mm, this lens is also superb for street photography and portraiture, making it a versatile option for any EF-S APS-C Canon camera .
