As a longer macro lens, the EF 180mm f/3.5L Macro USM is ideal for macro nature photography. With a maximum magnification of 1x, this macro lens allows you to capture the beauty of nature in stunning detail, while still allowing you to keep some distance from your subject. Its longer working distance and near silent ring-type ultrasonic motor driven autofocus make it ideal for photographing insects, tiny wildlife and flowers, while its eight-blade aperture helps you to create a beautifully smooth background blur on your shots. Versatile enough to be used as a macro lens or as a standard 180mm telephoto lens, the EF 180mm f/3.5L Macro USM delivers L-series build quality, and super sharp images with excellent colour and contrast.
