This new 58mm lens is capable of focusing from 2X magnification to infinity. Giving you more flexibility in subject selection. From tiny ant to larger dragonfly, you can capture it in one single lens. More details of the objects can be captured at 2X magnification.
Being able to focus infinity, the 58mm focal length (40.9° AoV) pair with the f/2.8 aperture give the lens more usage than just a macro lens. You can also use it for portrait, product photography or use as walk-around lens.
