Canon EF 50mm f/2.5 macro

 

The Canon EF 50mm f/2.5 macro was introduced back in december 1987 so it's one of the oldest lensesin the line-up and it seems as if Canon has discontinued the lens with the recent introduction of thenew EF-S 60mm f/2.8 USM (w/reduced image circle)....

The EF 50mm f/2.5 macro is a fairly unexciting lens but it offers a very high performance despite its ancientdesign. The quality of the construction is fairly decent though not stellar.By today's standards the micro motor as well is a little outdated....

I do like the lens but can get some better macros using a 200mm zoom,,,,,,,,practice will make it better.

The overall product is very good,,,best to use inside though, as trying to chase bees etc etc is impossible.

Canon EF 50mm f/2.5 Macro

 

ease of use and quality of image

a slightly shorter focal length might suit the sort of close focus photography this lens is best at, and leave the longer close focus lenses to do portrait-style macro work.
