A unique and indispensable addition to Canon's series of EF lenses, the EF 40mm f/2.8 STM offers an ultra-slim and lightweight design. Incredibly compact in size, the EF 40mm f/2.8 STM delivers high image quality from the center to the periphery thanks to its advanced lens configuration including an aspherical element, a bright 2.8 aperture, and optimized coatings that minimize ghosting and flare while providing exceptional color balance. The EF 40mm f/2.8 STM's unobtrusive design helps the photographer avoid overwhelming their subjects with a large lens and to remain discreet in sensitive shooting situations with no compromise in performance. Its diminutive design is complemented by features such as a newly developed stepping motor for smooth and quiet continuous AF while capturing video with the Canon EOS Rebel T4i DSLR, a circular aperture (7 blades) for beautiful soft-focus backgrounds, and a short minimum focusing distance of only 0.98 ft./0.30 m.

4 out of 5 stars   Wonderful Pancakes
By The Ever Guest (Columbus, GA) April 12, 2013
Review submitted for Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM Pancake Lens Kit (E1CNEF40STM)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Fast autofocus, Very small, Solid build quality, Quieter Autofocus
Cons: Manual Focus Motor, Low Light Performance
Other Comments: I bought this lens for my fiance as a gift. She purchased a new Canon T4i with the kit zoom lens, but I wanted her to be able to experiment with a prime lens. The tiny footprint of the 40mm pancake made me chose it over the nifty 50mm f/1.8. I'm glad I did because she's barely used the kit zoom, the pancake is always on her T4i.

5 out of 5 stars   Good General purpose lens
By Moo (MD) April 01, 2013
Review submitted for Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM Pancake Lens Kit (E1CNEF40STM)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Quiet, Sharp, Quick Focus, Pancake
Cons: Need More F Stop
Other Comments: This lens is fun, but I would only use it for video due to the STM feature. Photos are good but a 50mm f/1.8 is better in my opinion. If you don't have the 50 then this lens is a great all purpose lens for the price and features. NOTE: STM lenses are more efficiently used in the newer EOS cameras T4i/650+ or 5D mark III or 1D X. This is to the best of my knowledge.

5 out of 5 stars   Should be selling like Hot (Pan) Cakes
By Papa (SLC,UT) January 06, 2013
Review submitted for Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM Pancake Lens Kit (E1CNEF40STM)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Compact, Fast, Priced right, Sharp
Cons:
Other Comments: This is a great little, and I do mean little lens. It's very sharp wide open, extremely compact and is a very effective focal length on my 7D. I'm really impressed with the images I'm getting in both stills and video. I love it! And for the price, it's got to be the best value of all Canon lenses IMO.

5 out of 5 stars   Great prime
By mk (New York, NY) November 17, 2012
Review submitted for Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM Pancake Lens Kit (E1CNEF40STM)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Sharp, Stm, Light, Compact
Cons: Small Filters
Other Comments: Great as a walk-around lens. Prime forces beginners not to be lazy. Very sharp at this price point, with STM being a plus. Compact and light, but need a smaller lens filter than other lenses so I needed to have separate filters just for this lens.

4 out of 5 stars   Great cheap, light and small lense
By thelastpiece (Brattleboro, VT) November 17, 2012
Review submitted for Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM Pancake Lens Kit (E1CNEF40STM)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Small, Light
Cons: Slow Auto-Focus
Other Comments: I decided to go for this lense instead of the 50mm. I'm happy with it so far, it's very light and very small. The auto-focus seems a little slow but it works. I've found it to be a great lense for just walking around and taking quick shots.
