Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM Pancake

pancake-1
Review Date: Jul 21, 2012 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Very sharp. Price. Weight and size.
Cons:
Needs AF micro adjust.

I love this lens. It makes my 5D mark 2 into this light, take anywhere camera. The lens is extremely sharp, however the combination of my copy and my camera body required serious AF micro adjustment (-13). Before I did that AF was seriously out - the background would be in focus! My other lenses have not required major adjustments.

Color looks good.

While I find sometimes that the 40mm focal length is restrictive and makes me wish I had brought my other lenses, it's usually in circumstances that if I didn't have the 40mm, I would not have taken my camera bag due to the weight.
