Verdict

The Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 USM macro is a high performance lens with next to perfect resolution figures across the image frame which is only limited by diffraction effects. Lateral CAs as well as distortions are not field relevant. Unfortunately there're also a couple of drawbacks. The vignetting is too high at f/2.8 and the quality of the bokeh is only decent but not really stellar. There's also some bokeh color fringing (LoCAs) at large apertures.

The build quality of this lens is very good - the constant physical length is especially worth to mention here. The AF is very fast, accurate and nearly silent. All-in-all an nice little lens which is available at an attractive price point.
