Does Canon 2.8/60 Macro have any disadvantages? We think we’ve finally found one. Small dimensions, closed construction, small front lens – all this made itself felt in the case of vignetting, which at the maximum aperture reaches as much as 38% (-1.38 EV). Such a level of this aberration can be seen not only on test charts. Fortunately, after stopping down to f/4.0 vignetting falls to 18%. At f/5.6 aperture value it vanishes almost entirely (5%).
