Light-weight and everything I expected

  • Excerpt: This is super thin and very lightweight. The only negative comment I have is that when you adjust focus the lens squeaks a bit. Not the end of the world though.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Nice Bokeh

Great Prime Lens for a Beginner

  • Excerpt: This is my first prime lens. I am new to the world of DSLR photography [Canon T5i] and I am still learning. I use the 40mm mainly for stills of people. It is well constructed. The 40mm pancake lens takes sharp photos if you know what you are doing.
  • Pros: Durable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Poor At Video

  • Excerpt: Excellent as a walk-around lens for Mark II. Very satisfied with the performance and speed. Not quite as sharp as other "L" lens used but very good.Quality lens. Best part is that it is so light and non-obtrusive. Can carry it all day without fatigue. B+H has delivered perfectly once again.

Light, fast lens with good image quality

  • Excerpt: I bought this to pair with a Canon SL1 body for a light weight travel package. I have taken this lens out a few times and am getting very usable images. I find them slightly better than the 25mm pancake. I also find the quality slightly better than my nifty fifty.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh

Compact and sharp!

20 March 2015
  • Excerpt: I bought this lens to have a compact short lens that will fit in my pocket for events that I am mostly shooting with a long lens but may want to grab a short lens for occasional use. It is also nice when I want to travl with something small and light, or to be inconspicuous while shooting.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight

  • Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Stops At F28

Sweet Little Lens

19 February 2015
  • Excerpt: I've only had this lens for a couple of weeks, but already I'm impressed with the quality and image quality it produces. I hadn't used a prime lens since my first 35 mm film camera many years ago. I've been using zoom lenses for the last 15 plus, and have gotten lazy.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
