What Canon Lens for this Type Shot
Jun 18, 2014

My wife took this shot of our grandson with her IPhone.   I believe was within 12 inches of his face when she captured this image.  With my Canon 24-70 f2.8mm on a 5D MIII I could not get closer than 18".

What Canon lens would allow me to focus within 12 inches of the subject?

I suspect it is some type of macro lens but I'm not familiar with Canon macro lens. Perhaps the Canon 100mm f2.8 would work, I'm not sure.  I'm looking for the best possible Canon lens in this area.
