It's not a macro lens, but if you get a set of extension tubes you can turn any lens into a "macro" lens.

Bungle is correct, this little 50 mm lens is not a macro lens. For macro photography the Canon 100 mm dedicated macro lens is great although rather more costly. The lens of course can also be used for other photography where its superb optics and wide aperture make it very flexible.
