My current 'go to' lens.,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM Lens (Electronics)
I will openly admit, I am a fan of a true 50mm lens, and when I saw this (especially at the price) I was highly skeptical. However, having shot with both Canon and Leica camera's, I knew of Canon's general quality, and from Leica the general flexibility of a pancake lens.
I will keep this review short and sweet; I love the lens. It hasn't left my camera for 2 weeks now. I work as a professional photographer / graphic designer, and understand the tools of my trade. The images are tack sharp, the bokeh is superlative, and the speed is excellent. And with the price being so low it is hard to not justify this lens.
To quickly touch on the setup I am shooting with a Canon EOS 60D (same sensor as 7D), and use the B+W multi coat filter, as well as the ES-52 lens hood. The images are excellent.
