Canon EF 180mm f/3.5L Macro USM telephoto lens

Another telephoto macro lens with a maximum magnification of 1x. Life-size close-ups can be taken from a farther distance without disturbing the subject (insects, etc). The internal floating system minimizes fluctuations in aberrations caused by changes in the focusing distance. The delineation is therefore razor sharp from 1x to infinity.

Telephoto macro lens
The EF 180mm f/3.5L Macro USM is a telephoto macro lens which offers a maximum magnification of 1.0x. Life-size close-ups can be taken from further away, and at less risk of disturbing the subject (ideal for insects and other wildlife). The internal floating focusing system minimizes fluctuations in aberrations caused by changes in focusing distance. This ensures the lens is razor sharp from 1.0x to infinity.


L-series quality
Incorporates Canon’s highest standards of precision engineering and optical superiority. The L-series is Canon’s flagship professional lens range, combining outstanding image definition and ultimate performance with all-weather construction to prevent dust and moisture ingress.


Ring USM auto focus with manual override
Canon’s ring USM auto focus system employs ultra-sonic frequency vibrations for fast, accurate and virtually silent operation. Full-time manual focus override, via a large ring that does not move during auto focus, allows photographers to fine-tune focusing instantly.


Super Spectra coating
Super Spectra coatings help ensure accurate colour balance and high contrast, while suppressing flare and ghosting by absorbing stray light that might be reflected off internal lens elements and image sensor.
