Lens Description: Designed for APS-C format cameras, this is a good choice for general photography. But when an exquisite little detail catches your eye, you can move in to less than an inch from your subject and capture macro images with up to 1:1 magnification. The details you focus on will be astonishingly sharp, while the out-of-focus background dissolves into a creamy blur that can really make the details stand out.
