“When taking photos with the camera hand-held, some unintentional shaking is possible. In macro photography even the slightest movement is magnified and problematic. To counter this, the EF-S 35mm f/2.8 Macro IS STM features Hybrid IS technology, which uses information from two sensors in the lens to compensate for both angle shake and shift shake. This Hybrid IS technology helps ensure that the images you capture are as sharp as possible.
