Canon Rumor’s Review of the Canon EF 40 f/2.8 STM
Justin has completed our review of Canon’s little 40 f/2.8 STM pancake lens.
People ask me all the time if it’s worth $200, and I say it is… even just for the fun of it. I especially like it on the EOS 6D just to reduce even more weight from a walkaround kit. Justin also liked the lens, though he doesn’t think he’ll be taking it to too many professional gigs.
“Will a pro shooter get something out of this lens that they don’t on any of their other pieces of kit? Meh, probably not. But that’s missing the point, this lens isn’t FOR them. It’s for people who want a light kit, it’s for people who don’t have over a thousand dollars for a zoom lens. It’s for people who who just want to get started or to explore image making with something cheap, or help grow the small kit they already have. It’s for people who, already having pretty much everything, just need something new and unobtrusive to take with them, to give them a slightly different view and inspire some new work.”
