Wow, just wow.

I picked up this little gem about a month ago to use with my Canon 700D to capture video. I have been photographer for over a decade and still use a basic APS-C with a variety of lenses. The sharpness is amazing. If it were ever lost or damaged I would not hesitate to replace it.

I love this Lens

Worth the buy. Sure it will be anybody's best choice. I love this over 50mm f1.8 STM. But if you are into portrait photography then 50mm is much better than this.

I Love this Lens (5stars) ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I was confused over EF 50mm f/1.8 STM. I think this is entirely different from the other one. I own both 50mm and 40mm. Very sharp picture quality. A bit wider angle than 50mm A nice walk around lens. Compact. I love the feel of this lens. I would definitely recommend this too anybody. This is Not a very good portrait lens when compared with 50mm f/1.8. In my opinion I think, if you like to do portrait photography go for 50mm f/1.8 STM.

good lens

Good lens for this price, clear-sharp image but little bit noisy video when using zoom function. my 18-135 lens is very silent ....I preferred 50 mm lens for portrait-night-indoor photography

Awesome little lens!

I have been eyeing this lens for a while. It seemed like the perfect little lens to pop on my camera for family excursions. I was right! :) It's incredibly sharp, and on my 6D is just wide enough for a lot of uses. I took it with us on a trip to the Scenic Caves in Collingwood, and it was fantastic. I can just pop my camera in my purse and go - it's so incredibly light compared to my zoom lens. The colour is beautiful SOOC. And have I mentioned how sharp it is? I didn't even have to calibrate! Love it.

Mr

Good bang for the buck. Works on full frame or C sensor cameras. So small it makes even the biggest camera usable anywhere. Good in low light , no flash situations, and auto focus works quite well.
