This unique manual-focus lens is designed exclusively for macro shooting. It can magnify objects between life-size (1x) and 5x life-size. At its maximum magnification, you can fill the frame with a grain of rice. This is made for serious macro work and it takes some practice, the focusing rail, a tripod, and a macro flash to get the best results. It is made to be compatible with the Canon Macro Twin Lite MT-24EX, which is a specialized flash for use with some Canon macro lenses. A complete kit can be configured from this lens, the MT-24EX flash, the Novoflex Castel-L focusing rail, and a tripod. We highly recommend getting the focusing rail because in macro photography you're usually working with a very thin depth of field. A rather unique feature of this lens is the focusing ring changes the focus and the magnification of the lens at the same time. The focusing rail lets you fine tune the focus without changing the magnification. This lens comes with a tripod ring for easy mounting to the tripod.
