I have a canon m50 mark ii, super newbie at photography.
I'm looking at 3-4 macro lenses and they all for a canon ef mount but not sure if that will fit my m50.
Which should I pick:

Irix 150mm f/2.8 Macro for Canon EF
Laowa 100mm f/2.8 2:1 Ultra Macro APO Lens for Canon EF
Tokina atx-i 100mm f/2.8 FF Macro Lens for Canon EF

All of those will work but require the EF-M mount adapter.


There are third-party versions available at substantially lower cost.

Canon also makes a native EF-M 28mm macro lens.

I have the Canon EF-M 28mm f/3.5 lens but I was looking for something that I can shoot from a little further away. Thank you for the info on the adapter. I'm new so trying to learn everything will take time but I am enjoying it.

Those are all large and don’t balance well on the M series. I tend to use the EF-S 60mm with the adapter. Decent working distance and it handles well.

There is also Laowa 65mm in EF-M mount but only manual focus.
I would prefer a lens with AF but it depends what subjects You likr to shot.
I'm looking at that one right now and I hear it is almost as good as a 100mm. It fits my m50 without an adapter also.. $399 too!!

I have an M5, and I have the 28mm macro, but find the ef-s 60mm macro works really well with the M5.
You will need the adaptor, but these lenses can be picked up very cheap second hand.
If you need even more reach, you could also get a Canon 100mm macro.

Last week another macro lens has been released:

40mm 2.8 1:1
Full manual but also cheap: 130€

Could be a good choice for flowers and mushrooms. Of cause still no reviews

I just got my Laowa 65mm lens and fell in love already. I had to figure out first how to set m50 for a lens without aperture information. Right away I was taking some good pics for a novice such as myself. Thanks a bunch for this info.
