The EF 50mm f/2.5 macro is a fairly unexciting lens but it offers a very high performance despite its ancient design. The quality of the construction is fairly decent though not stellar. By today’s standards the micro motor as well is a little outdated. Same goes for the life-size converter which is needed to achieve a 1:1 magnification. The new EF-S 60mm f/2.8 USM macro has been improved in these respects – at higher costs and with reduced image circle.
So if you’re looking for an affordable, high performance standard lens with macro capabilities the EF 50mm f/2.5 macro can still be recommended. READ FULL REVIEW
