Canon Macro lenses are a great way to have in the camera bag as they open up a wealth of creative and close-up photography you just can’t capture as well with other lenses. From reviewing a lot of lenses and quite a few of these are for Canon users who want to capture macro/close-up photography.
Here are some of our top picks:
The Tamron SP 90mm f/2.8 Di Macro 1:1 VC USD is a lens that is built on the reputation of the predecessors and definitely coming up to the mark. This one takes the performance to a new peak and is very comfortable to use. Overall, it is an outstanding macro lens ideal for all short telephoto applications.
The Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM features optical image stabilization, life-size magnification, and weather-sealed construction. The EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS features on the ultrasonic motor and scored well in our review.
The Sigma APO Macro 180mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM lens offers life-size magnification with a fast f/2.8 aperture, along with optical image stabilization to help to keep the shots steady. The long telephoto reach means you can get close-up shots without getting too close to the subject.
The Canon TS-E 50mm f/2.8L Macro has a bulk and a high price and features. In other words, these situations also have a feature set and quality are not in the question but the price would limit the market to those who really need this as a working tool. It would be very nice to own, but also needs to pay its way – as well as needing a high degree of photographic skill.
Canon TS-E 90mm f/2.8L Macro is one of those lenses that go a long way, while other lenses fade away and are replaced by some of the most sought-after ones with new possibilities of mixing a 90mm lens with macro and tilt and shift start the fire the imagination. This is also a specialized optic that would be delightful to own, and the price level would probably be for professional photographers with particular applications clear in the minds.
