Canon EF 24mm F/2.8 Pancake

I went for a modest hike today and took along my new 77D with the 24mm pancake lens.  I wanted to see if this made a good lightweight hiking combo.

It was a cool, overcast day at Beacon Rock State Park.  There were some nice wildflowers and the light was ideal for macro work.  I was wishing I had a macro lens along, but I didn't, so the pancake lens was pressed into service.   Here is a full frame image:

ISO 400,  1/80 sec, F/8, hand held, Av



And here is a crop from that image:



After I got that shot, I happened to look closely at the lens and discovered the word MACRO on the side.  I was pleasantly surprised.
