Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM Pancake Lens - USA Warranty Reviews:


Wow! Great!

I love this little lens. For the price it is the best ( value ) lens that I have to date.

I noticed in public people take much less note of me with this lens on my 60D as compared to my 17-50mm which I had hoped would be the case.

It focuses at a closer distance than many other Canon lenses which is very nice at close quarters like seated at a restaurant table, optically is wow very sharp & colors pop.

Everything about it has surpassed my expectations by a large margin.
Though it has not replaced my 17-50 2.8 I.S. as my most used lens it will stay tucked in my bag and always be at hand - its sooo tiny.

Well that's my 2¢ based on this last week.
Wrote this because other reviews here have really helped me so I'm trying to give back in return.

Sharp, fast, and convenient.

I like the 40mm as a "normal" lens. It's a great walk-around lens on my Canon 5D2. I have no way of knowing how internally rugged it is, but the performance is great.
