I have a 50mm 1.4 and a 24-70 2.8 which are great lenses, but I love the idea of a pancake lens. Great for street photography and light weight, maybe even can fit in some pockets.
I dont really like it being 40mm, or 2.8 though, especially for the price and compared to the 50mm 1.8 which is 100$.
Also both of my lens… see more

Also both of my lenses basically overlap this lens with focal length.
In addition, the real unique engine doesnt work with anything besides the T4i which would have been great. I do not know if its possible to work with a firmware update for other cameras.
I want it, but cant really see it being worth 200$. If it were 100 that would be great. I wish it were 35mm at least, or 40mm 2.0 see less

The Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 Pancake Lens would be compatible with all Canon EOS cameras, which would include both the Canon EOS T2i and the Canon EOS 1D X DSLR cameras.

The lens has an AF/MF switch, which must be in the AF position to autofocus. If you own the lens and you are experiencing an issue with your lens, then I would recommend trying the lens on another Canon DSLR camera. If the lens is still not autofocusing, then I would either return the lens for an exchange or contact Canon at 1-800-652-2666 for assistance under their included 1-Year Limited Warranty.
That info coming from another site. I also have the 40mm. The value of it to me is because I carry heavy lenses which are just about my limit, and now I can pocket the 40mm pancake for the moments I wished I had a wide angle with me. It's a nice lens. 40mm does better indoors than the 50mm, but other than that, I doubt it is a 'must have' for you. However it's a great little investment, I think. see less
