Canon EF-S 35mm f2.8 IS STM Macro coming soon.
Quote:I can't say I like how Canon's site presents the lens.  If it were not for all of your comments I might have missed the hood/filter threads issue.  Of course Canon users are familiar with the focus by wire limitations.  I'm not overly thrilled, that a macro lens comes with the MFD of 130mm given, and they fail to mention the MOD is more like 30mm(?).  
It is about the FOV. If you want a wider FOV for macro, you need a short focal length. A short focal length comes with a small working distance, always.


So, you have the choice.

28mm (EOS M), 35mm (EF-S), 60mm (EF-S), 100mm, 180mm. A FOV choice. 


I am overly thrilled by this lens, in the sense that if I still had an APS-C DSLR I would get this lens for its wide FOV for close ups, in a heartbeat. Lovely. 


At the moment I use a 55mm f3.5 macro on my FF camera, for close ups. Similar FOV. And 90mm and 200mm Wink


I may get the 28mm one for my EOS M sometime in future, or even this new 35mm. With IS they even make nice video lenses...
