From the Manufacturer
Bring small things into full-sized view with the Canon EF 60mm macro USM lens. Macro lenses can uncover detail that would be impossible to detect by the eye and give new perspective to extremely minute subjects such as insects or the petals of a small flower, and this lens is no exception. The 60mm lens offers an angle of view that's equivalent to a 96mm lens on a 35mm camera, along with a floating optical system that can focus down to life-size 1:1 magnification. The inner focusing system, meanwhile, is driven by a silent and powerful ring-type ultra-sonic monitor (USM), meaning the lens's overall length never changes during focus. Ultimately, the multi-purpose lens is equally at home shooting macro shots, portraits, or available-light photos. Like all Canon EF-S lenses, this lens is restricted to the EOS 20D, EOS Digital Rebel, and EOS Digital Rebel XT cameras.

The lens isn't heavy so although it doesn't have iso-stablization, I haven't had a problem with blurred images. If I get really close, it's probably best to use a tripod, but I haven't had to do that yet.
I have had problems with getting the autofocus to focus quickly. Usually this is due to being very close to the subject. I find that if I try to set the distance before focusing it does better.
The lens is relatively expensive, but it gives me so much more versatility for my camera that it's worth it. I'm really glad I bought it.
I have an assortment of zoom lenses in the bag. This lense forces me back to photographic roots and the old axiom of "If your Photographs are consistently bad, get closer". That is now true in more ways than one.
Lense is very well built, focuses fast, although I admit I have gone to manual focus for most of the work with it. I did have to break down and get a remote release for the camera and read the book to find the new configuration for Mirror Up on the new 7D which I adore!
Good Quality at a Good price.
This lens won by a narrow margin, but I'm very happy that it did. It's been a few months, and since the day it arrived, it has replaced the 18-55mm kit zoom as my everyday walk-around lens. It is excellent for macro and portrait photography, but it's also just a good all around lens.
Picture quality is very sharp, and I never need a flash outdoors. A tripod is recommended for sharp macro results, though I've gotten some great ones without. Shooting indoors, on overcast days, without a tripod is tough, but that's totally reasonable! (Perhaps someday I'll pick up the 50 so I can perform this miracle.)
I've got nothing bad to say about this lens. Highly recommended.
The EFS60mm offers the best optical performance in my lens collection. It beats my EF 24-70mm F2.8L in terms of sharpness and chroma aberration at the same focal length and aperture. I use the EFS60mm not only for macro but also for other stuff like people and still objects. When I move to full frame, I am pretty sure I would still keep a crop body as a back up and also for telephoto stuff. So the value of this lens would not diminish. A great lens like this one should retain its resale value. You shouldn't worry too much about "oh, but I 'm going to upgrade to full frame some time down the road." Just get this lens if you want more versatility. Recently I have a business partner who has moved to full frame, and he sold his EFS 17-55mm F2.8 at 98% of what he had originally paid for. It 's better than renting.
