Sample Images

Ok, finally here're some sample shots taken with the EOS 350D (converted RAWs). Click on a thumbnail to view the original file (opens in a separate window). Please note that the full-size images are supplied in JPEG2000 format. You should be able to display the images in most modern imaging applications such as Photoshop. This is a measurement to limit the bandwidth which is a scarce resource.

If you prefer to watch the full-size samples in your Internet Explorer browser you may try the JPEG2000 ActiveX Control (Windows) plug-in. I've checked out a few plug-ins for Mozilla/Opera but haven't really found a good one. Firefox will open IE if you install the ActiveX Control above.

Verdict

So they do exist - high-performance lenses with an reduced image circle. The Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 USM macro delivers an almost flawless performance. The lens is capable to provide very sharp border-to-border results with minimal distortions and low CAs. The bokeh (out-of-focus blurr) is decent. The only really dirty spot on its otherwise clean vest is high vignetting at f/2.8 towards infinity focus but one stop down the issue is pretty much resolved. So combined with its high build quality, very fast AF and a pretty affordable price the only verdict can be ... highly recommended!
