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...

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.

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...

Consumer review by:

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, crisp, fast lens for under

 

I shoot freelance and for a hobby and am blown away by this lens. For under $200 you get crisp results from a lightweight and unassuming lens. 5 stars.

Compact do everything lens!

 

I purchased this lens to go with the Canon Rebel SL1. This is the perfect combo for a small and light rig. It focuses silently and fast. The build quality is better than expected for this price range and the optical performance appears to be excellent!
