From the Manufacturer
EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM
Incredibly lightweight, the EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM is a fast and versatile lens with advanced AF and superior optics. With a 35mm equivalent focal length of 38mm, it's appropriate for a variety of purposes. The lens features optimized lens element placement and includes an aspheric element for high image quality from the center of the composition to the corners, and has specialized coatings on the lens elements to reduce ghosting and flare. To ensure excellent color balance, a 7-blade circular aperture provides superb out-of-focus detail. The EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM excels during movie shooting thanks to its STM motor that enables silent and smooth focus tracking (on EOS cameras with Movie Servo AF), plus a micro-stepping drive that keeps aperture changes quiet. The lens also offers full-time manual focus, manual AF adjustment (one-shot AF), and can focus down to a minimum distance of 0.5 ft. (0.16m). Delivering optical brilliance in a lightweight and unobtrusive construction, the EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM is a great fixed-optical length lens for photographers looking to add a travel-friendly option to their collection.

Top Customer Reviews
-FOCAL LENGTH: At 24mm on crop sensor(Canon t4i, t5i, t6i, t6s, 70D, 7D), the effective focal length is 38mm, which is an excellent frame size for general all around shooting. (Hence I believe this lens will do for crop sensors what the 40mm did for full frame.). The 40mm pancake is just too narrow on the crop sensor as a general purpose lens making it difficult to take indoor photos (you will back up into walls).
-APERTURE: Aperture is f2.8 which is a full stop larger than the f-stop on kit lens 18-55mm at the equivalent 24mm (recall the kit lens minimum of f3.5 is only available on at 18mm and increases as you increase focal length). This means the 24mm pancake delivers better bokeh thru smaller depth of field to separate your subject from the background. It will also let in greater light for better indoor pictures without flash. Of note, while the f2.8 is the same on both the 24mm and 40mm pancakes, the DIFFERENCE of aperture size compared with the kit lens is much greater on the 40mm (f5.0 on kit lens at 40mm and f3.5 at 24mm). This makes the relative improvement greater on the 40mm than on the 24mm, but still a good improvement over kit lens.
-SIZE: SMALL! Yes, this is probably the number #1 reason this lens is of interest. What good is a bulky DSLR that you don't carry? Trim the space to this incredible size and you are more likely to carry it with you!
-OPTICAL CHARACTERISTICS: Quality optics, Canon does not disappoint here: Excellent sharpness, minimal chromatic abberation, no significant vignetting. You are getting a very nice lens!
-FOCUS MECHANISM: Uses an STM stepping motor, while not as fast or quiet as several of the other lenses of the STM class, it is still an improvement over non-STM lenses. Also has full-time manual focus.
-MINIMUM FOCUS DISTANCE: Minimum focus distance is 6" so it can be used as a semi-macro lens. (See my video for close ups)
-BUILD QUALITY: Excellent construction. Has the exact same high quality, durable frame, metal mount and solid feel as the 40mm pancake. No doubt the lens will last a long time.
-FILTER SIZE: Small filter diameter 52mm, allows you to purchase better filters for less money.
-COST: At $150, it's an incredible bargain. (Note: there are several sellers charging far greater than the retail price. If the Amazon price is high, wait a day or two to order as the typical sellers replenish their stocks.)
-IMAGE STABILIZATION: This lens lacks IS. Fortunately at the shorter focal length, you can get by with a faster shutter speed to achieve good hand-held results.
-FORM FACTOR: This is an EF-S lens (note the WHITE square) means it is only for crop sensor Canons (t5i, 70D, 7D and their predecessors) and will not work on full-frame sensors Canons (1D, 5D, 6D). Therefore the lens will not "cross-over" if you decide to upgrade in the future. The 40mm pancake will as it is an EF lens (note the RED dot).
-FOCUS MECHANISM: Not a huge deal but, because it's "focus by wire", it requires power to use the focus ring
-MANUAL INDICATORS: No distance indicators for focusing. Frankly not a big deal.
5 Stars. You won't be disappointed with this lens!
BUILD: This lens is only a little larger than a body cap, hence the pancake moniker. Although compact, it is robust in construction: metal mount, sturdy plastics and black matte finish. The EF-s mount only fits APS-C (1.6x crop) cameras like the Rebel and 70D (not for full frame). There is no distance scale and it uses 52mm filters.
IMAGE QUALITY: Field of view is equivalent to 38mm on full-frame and, coupled with its fast F2.8 aperture, is ideal for candid and low light photography. Wide open it's tack sharp center frame with smooth bokeh in defocused areas. Corners are a little softer and darker than center but equalize by stopping down to F4 or higher. In short, image quality is excellent open wide and a little better stopped down.
AUTO FOCUS is peppy and faster than the EF 40 2.8 STM. Minimum focus distance is six-inches, allowing for quasi-macro shots. Most significantly, AF is accurate and rarely misses on my SL1 and 70D. Focus is buttery smooth and great for touchscreen pulls during video. The focus motor is very quiet--a pianissimo "sheeek"--but may be picked up by built-in camera mics during video recording. Workarounds include using an external mic or focusing before recording.
MANUAL FOCUS is "focus-by-wire"; i.e., the MF ring activates the focus motor but isn’t mechanically coupled to the lens. The tiny nested barrel moves during focus, growing slightly longer at close focus. Full-Time Manual (FTM) allows AF override without flipping a switch: simply turn the MF ring. FTM is only active when the shutter button is half-depressed.
LENS HOOD: The dedicated hood is the Canon ES-52 and fits both the EF 40 2.8 STM and EF-s 24 2.8 STM. It's basically a 52mm aluminum filter ring around a disk with a hole in the center. It provides little shading or protection. If you don't mind nixing the pancake vibe, a 52mm thread generic metal hood works better and costs less.
FINAL BLURB: I choose this lens mainly because of its small size: mounted on a Rebel SL1, it fits in my coat pocket. However, its uniqueness is more than being a tiny lens: accurate and peppy AF, sturdy build and, most significantly, vivid and sharp images wide open.
