Great low price addition

 

Keep it on my backup camera under the back seat of my car so I always have a camera no matter what. Is small, but image quality is very good. Better to have a decent image than none at all. Not a substitute for a pro lens but way better than having no...

40mm, nice addition to the Canon line

 

This is a lovely, light lens excellent for general use. I can use it on both my full frame and crop frame cameras. Very good, unobstrusive street lens. Auto focus is fairly quick and quiet. Although I normally use a macro lens, this lens can be...

Nice addition for a Photog Noobie

 

This is a great lens for a noobie\/beginner! It\'s relatively inexpensive and it\'s upgrade proof. If and when I decide to upgrade to a new Canon camera body I don\'t have to worry that this lens will not be compatible.

it\'s a steal

 

Buy it. The 50mm 1.8 is cheaper BUT you have to crank up the aperture to 2.8 to get equal sharpness; but the build is WAY better on the 40mm as is the color. In fact color is as good as my 24-105mm.

Good lightweight prime lens

 

This is a fun lightweight lens to carry around. I have been using it exclusively on my Cannon 5DM2 for the past few days and am enjoying how light it makes the camera (I also stopped using the battery grip). The autofocus works well most of the time...

Lightweight and Sharp

 

I purchased a camera kit, which naturally came with a zoom lens. I wanted something lightweight, suitable for walking around taking pictures at the beach, at cookout, etc. I never fully understood why people would purchase a standard lens when a zoom...

Very Sharp

 

This is one of the sharpest lenses I own. That said, I own the EF 24-105mm f4/L IS USM lens. It competes quite nicely with that lens. Enough said.

Great Walk-Around Lens

 

This thin lens is the perfect walk-around lens for a full frame camera and a decent portrait lens for a APS-C camera. Just add a protection filter and a thin sun shade, and you are ready to cruse the boulevard.
