The Canon EF 40mm F2.8 STM lens is an extremely compact and fast pancake lens. With stepping-motor technology for quiet, accurate focus operation, and a fast f2.8 aperture, the Canon 40mm lens is perfect for capturing sharp photos that stand out whilst providing a professional and natural-looking background blur. The Canon EF 40mm f2.8 lens comes in a portable, lightweight package and is suitable for a wide variety of subjects, from discreet portraits to landscapes. More
- As a Canon shooter who uses prime lenses primarily I was excited by the announcement from Canon last year that they were releasing a 40mm 2.8 prime lens. Typically I shoot weddings with a 35mm and 85mm lens combination so the focal length wasn’t too far off one of my standard camera combinations.

Just attach the lens and be confident that everything works silently with no hassle.
By Alan Clicks
great lens for groups, from 2 to 20+ people, for weddings
better definition than same focal length on canon zoom lens
Great compact fast focus light lens!
By Millfield Media guy
I use primarily for video - interviews when hand held - good in low light thanks to f2.8Focuses fast - like its bigger brother the 18-135mm STM lens - both used on my Canon 70DThe lightweight makes it superb for hand held video interviews, with a Rode Video Mic Pro for audioIts only issue is that, despite being STM, the focus is not totally silent like the 18-135mm STM, and can get picked up on the microphone in very quiet filming situations - this is why I give it 4* and not 5*

Street photographers dream
This is photography by stealth. Nothing better on the market.
Excellent highly recommended lense

I use this for general portraiture in medium and low light settings.

I surprised by the number of variable situations that the lens can be used. An ideal size for carrying in your camera bag all the time for the unexpected shot.
Just slides easily in your pocket
Just slips in your pocket - easy to use, great results

A Good Buy
Bought this lens after much deliberation as I had to leave my 60D and bulky lenses at home on a short train break. This lens now gives me a 60D which is usable when luggage space is at a premium. But better than that I have found it good for my interest in photography in churches for getting good shots of detailed items. It also gives good shots for street photography or architectural detail. However the FL on an aps sensor is at 64mm eqv and so is limited in this respect. Pics are sharp as see examples. The only thing that is different and it is not a fault of the lens is that I miss the bulk of my sigma lenses which give a good handhold on the camera. If stability is an issue use a tripod.
