Product Reviews
Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 34reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by The Sleeper of Sleepers ! One of the sharpest lenses I've ever used, a great match for full frame (and all) sensors. I do mostly travel and landscapes. I love the 40mm coverage on full-frame, and the 60mm equivalent on APS-C. I use a cheap rubber screw-on shade, so that if I bump it, the lens won't be damaged.But I've had misfocuses and balkiness, so that I have to shut off the 5D2 and turn it back on. This does not inspire confidence for weddings or street shooting. My old EF 35mm f2 is more trustworthy for those purposes. My suggestion, Canon, re-issue this otherwise great 40mm lens and get it right this time. My EF-S 24mm f2.8 is also new STM technology and does not seem to have these issues. July 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by It is always ready This is a fantastic lens! When at an event I used it to capture vender booths where it proved to be excellent. In good light it was such a pleasure to work with I now keep it attached and always ready. June 26, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best "street photography" lens ever? Before mentioning about the 40 mm f/2.8 lens, some background information first;I have a 6D and its kit lens 24-105 mm f/4. It is a very good camera as an entry level full frame and the lens covers quite a satisfactory focal range with its constant f/4 for the entire range. I use my camera for travel, architectural and street photography mostly. Here is a brief about my personal experience;1. Travel photography: I can say that, this set of body and the lens is quite good for travel photography. The benefit of carrying one lens during travels outweighs the benefits of carrying a number of lenses most of the time.2. Architectural photography: Although a 20 mm lens is my personal preference for architectural photography, the 24-105 mm lens covers most of my needs in that field. So, no serious complaints there.3. Street photography: I also use my 6D for street photography. A camera with exceptional low light capability and a general purpose lens is what you need for street photography because you never know what you will experience especially in the streets of Istanbul. Walking with the camera for hours has one major disadvantage though. Weight! Don't get me wrong. The weight of 6D with the 24-105 mm kit lens (almost 1425 grams) is quite acceptable as a full frame set but sometimes you want a much lighter camera if you have to carry it all day.Finally, I decided to check the lightweight alternatives. The final destination was mirrorless cameras. I made some research and narrowed down the choices to a few cameras. I even tested some of them. I saw that the mirrorless cameras I liked was between 600 to 900 grams including their lenses (mostly 35 mm full frame equivalent). So, at the end of the day, I had to spend almost two grand for a mirrorless camera and a lens if I really wanted to save around 500 grams of weight from my backpack.Although, mirrorless cameras were lighter, they were not as light as I expected. They were not cheap either. Further, I had to to sacrifice the full frame sensor quality, some sharpness, all day battery capability and usability of my existing lenses. This did not make sense.While I was thinking about the best solution, I came across the 40 mm pancake lens. Its size and weight was very attractive. I knew that most of my street photography shots were taken around 20 to 50 mm focal lengths. Further, f/2.8 was not bad at all. Further, 6D with a 40 mm lens was almost 885 grams. It was interesting that the weight was within the range of the mirrorless cameras I tested. So, instead of spending a grand or two for a mirrorless camera, this pancake lens seemed a very good alternative.The result? I can say that this 40 mm f/2.8 converted my 6D to a very good camera for street photography. Interestingly sharp photos and the low profile look of this lens (which is sometimes very important for street photography) made it my primary choice for street and even travel photography!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great little lens So light weight I didn't think it was on my camera. I shoot sport photography and shot some filler shots of coaches and start players. Tack Sharp, Sot some of Cheerleader Squad Tack Sharp November 22, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by sleeper I bought this as a travel lens for my T2i. Something that is not only lighter, but smaller. At first I did not like it. It simply wasn't as fun as my 85mm or 35mm lenses. The focus ring is kind of fiddly since it is focus by wire. Meaning it does not mechanically focus the lens. It sends a signal to the same motor the AF uses.Then I upgraded to a 760D/T6s.The lens behaves much better with the newer camera. The AF is better behaved, and manual focus while in AF mode works much better.I've also gotten more into using the AF with the 760D, since it has more flexible and powerful AF modes. This lens really works better if you leave the focus up to the camera and instead worry about the other settings like aperture and shutter.The colors and detail are very good. I get some CA on branches shot against bright skys and such. But even some L glass does that. July 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lightweight and Sharp I purchased a camera kit, which naturally came with a zoom lens. I wanted something lightweight, suitable for walking around taking pictures at the beach, at cookout, etc. I never fully understood why people would purchase a standard lens when a zoom could cover the focal length of multiple standard lenses.The reason is performance. I was immediately impressed by how sharp the images are with this lens. It has a short focal length, but without any wide angle or fish-eye effect. Colors are vivid. Bokeh is great on subjects close to the camera/lens, about 3-9 feet.This lens is a great value. The price/performance ratio is off the charts. This is a must have for full frame or APS-C cameras.

Rated 5 out of 5 by great lense for your camera Got it yesterday and trust me it is the best lens for portraits. Great bokeh, crisp pictures and most important there is no lens noise. superb built feels great in hand. would recommend July 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Sharp This is one of the sharpest lenses I own.That said, I own the EF 24-105mm f4/L IS USM lens.It competes quite nicely with that lens.Enough said. January 21, 2015
