A unique and indispensable addition to Canon's series of EF lenses, the new 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.

Great lens for the money.

It is sharp, F4+ is really the sweet spot here. Wide open the photos are usable but some distortion occurs in lower light settings. I used this lens at the aquarium and got some very good and usable shots from 2.8-5.6. I noticed on my 60d I had to keep the ISO setting on manual with this lens as it tended to jack it all the way up on auto, ruining some of my shots.

Note on the build quality: It seems ok, decent enough for the price. But when attaching it to the camera something seems off. It doesn't feel quite right. No harm has come from this, just something I noticed.

All in all, I suggest this over a 50 for FF and crop cameras. It will bring the shot farther back, in line with a more realistic perspective of the human eye.
