The Canon EF 180mm f/3.5L Macro USM is aimed at photographers that specialise in wildlife macro photography. The 180mm focal length allows you to be further away from your subject when taking your shots, so reducing the chances of you disturbing your subject. The inclusion of an ultrasonic motor (USM) speeds up focusing times. This is also likely to be important if you are taking photos of subjects that may move quickly.
The EF 180mm f/3.5L Macro USM is part of the Canon Luxury range and is aimed at professional photographers. Image quality is enhanced by the use of 3 UD (Ultra Low Dispersion) elements in the construction of the lens.
