Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM Pancake

pancake-1
Review Date: Jul 5, 2012 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: light, small, sharp, cheap, cool...
Cons:
the lens cap is crap

I love it. Takes the tech out of a capture. Set her to F5.6 and just take photos... No BS.

Here's my review with samples:

Pros: If you are female or a pathetic man then the weight will be to your liking.
Cons:
Back focuses and its f4

Sent it back twice - once to have the back focusing issue adjusted. Then to have a new auto fucus motor put in. Still back focuses. Can't rely on it. Who are you trying to kid? You need the f2.8 with IS - if you buy cheap you buy twice - just brought the IS version and it kicks ass.

The people that like this lens are very tolerant and probably in love with Canon, don't trust them.

Yeah, yeah I had a bad copy - my popint exactly, bad copies of this lens exsist which is a good reason not to buy it.
