Built for the company’s M series, the EF-M 28mm f/3.5 has a crop factor of 1.6, meaning that it performs at an effective focal length of 44.8 mm. That’s not bad for certain types of close-up photography, and its build quality is admirable.
Sigma 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3 DC
It’s rare to get great close-up results from a zoom, let alone a superzoom, but the Sigma 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3 DC manages to offer near-macro magnification in an all-day package. It’s a workhorse option that’s only limited by a relatively slow aperture.
RF 35mm f/1.8 STM
The fast aperture on the RF 35mm f/1.8 STM makes it a great choice for use in low-light situations, and it can create very soft, alluring backgrounds on the company’s full-frame mirrorless bodies. Its 1:2 magnification ratio is a little disappointing, though.

Canon Tilt-Shift 90mm f/2.8L
The perspective control functionality of the Canon Tilt-Shift 90mm f/2.8L allows you to make subtle adjustments to the way your subject relates to its background, as well as the way things like buildings and bridges stand out against their environments.

For those looking to capture minute details in low-light situations, the EF-S 35mm f/2.8 features a built-in LED ringlight, the left and right sides of which can be dimmed and brightened individually. It can create a nice catch light in your subject’s eyes, as well.
