Canon EF-M 28mm STM Macro Lens to be First with a Built-In Ring Light

Canon will soon be announcing a new Canon EF-M 28mm STM Macro lens. Photos and specs of the lens leaded today, revealing that it will be the first Canon lens to boast a built-in LED ring light.

Canon Watch reports that the lens will be the world’s lightest macro lens. Other reported features include a magnification ratio of 1:2, a minimum focusing distance of 0.093m (3.66in), hybrid image stabilization, and an STM stepping motor. It’s also said to be the world’s lightest macro lens.

For the first time, Canon will also be including a built-in LED light in a lens. The front of the lens features a ring light for macro photography, and a light bulb button is seen on the side of the lens body.

On a Canon EOS M camera, which uses a crop frame APS-C sensor, the lens is the equivalent of a 48mm lens in 35mm terms.

Digicame-info, which first published the photos, points out that the mount of the lens is plastic, suggesting that this will be a relatively affordable lens for entry-level photographers.

We’ll likely be seeing an official announcement with final details (including pricing and availability) very soon, so stay tuned.
