Excerpt: I often carry my camera with a 400mm lens down along the river to shoot birds and whatever wildlife I happen to see, and I occasionally want to shoot a wide shot such as the sunset. This lens is the perfect answer to simply throw it in my shirt-pocket and take off without having to carry a bag. Love this lens so far. The price made it an affordable option. Very happy with my purchase.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: This canon 40mm lens is the perfect match for my Canon EOS SL1 camera. It gets amazing shots and is so easy to transport. I really like how the photos look in low light. Christmas lights photos look great! B&H are superb! Would highly recommend them to anyone! I will be a repeat buyer!
Excerpt: I am still learning the ins and outs of Canon's EF 40mm f/2.8 STM lens, but, thus far I am quite pleased. I chose this standard lens because of its low profile, and it certainly is unobtrusive. Also, I've been pleased with its capacity at capturing portraits. I would recommend this lens.
Excerpt: At the current cost of this lens, you would have to be sleeping not to add one to your kit. We spend more money on frivolities than this lens will cost and the upside (by the way, there is no downside) is that this lens is tack sharp edge to edge. On a crop sensor it will give you about 65mm effective focal length, but isn't really a problem. The Autofocus works well and is quite silent. For a walking around lens, this 40mm f/2.8 is hard to beat.
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I purcahsed this lens to go with my Canon 6D for our trip to Disneyland CA. I wanted something light weight and easy to use in low light situations at night. This len did not disappoint one bit, sharp pictures and quick focus made this len fun to try new things with. At the cost, there is no reason not to have the 40mm STM in your bag at all times.
Excerpt: This is a perfect lens for when you don't want anything heavy on your camera . . . I'm using it on a crop sensor and so far my photos are turning out nice! I'm still learning, but my pull is toward prime lenses only. I like the bokeh and for what I can afford I can still get a great lens.
