Canon needs a 60mm FF macro in lens lineup.
Apr 27, 2011

I currently use a Canon 60mm f2.8 macro for copy work of my paintings. When the new Canon 5D MKIII comes out I would like to get one with a FF 60mm Canon lens. I may at that time get a Nikon instead since Nikon has some great macros (their 60mm f2.8 micro ED and the 105 f2.8 VR micro ED) but I won't be purchasing a camera as expensive as the Nikon D3x or Canon 1Ds (the $2500 range is fine for me for what I am doing).

Canon's 50mm f2.5 is very old and not 1:1. I had one for a while and sold it. It was a nice lens but not as good as my EF-S 60mm macro.

So, an top flight 60mm f2.8 FF macro would be very useful for me. The Canon 100 f2.8 IS macro is a little long for the copy work I do.
