Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM Pancake

pancake-1
Review Date: Jul 19, 2012 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: size, IQ for the price, AF
Cons:
some vignetting on FF

Bought this, as I have sold all other AF Canon lenses except for 135 and 200Ls (I'm a heavy alt user).

Was thinking of looking for a 2nd hand 50/2.5 macro, to have a standard AF lens for those occasions that demand it, but this 40/2.8 was cheaper and new!

I have not been disappointed! It is so small that it makes carrying a DLSR in a glider cockpit much nicer and was put to the test like that a few days back. IQ has been great on my 5D Mk III and I haven't found the AF to be slower than needed.

Great price-performance ratio, with a metal mount and a solid mounting action.
