    I bought this for use with an Xti and a SL1. It works well with both. The smaller form factor works well with the lighter SL1. Image quality is good and overall this lens is a good value at this price point.

    I am in love! You really can't beat the quality of this lens for the price! It feels light but sturdy, easy to pop in your bag for a quick focal length change.

    The was a great purchase for the price. The image quality is excellent and the small profile and macro distance makes this a great lens for newborn and children photography. The autofocus is really fast and quite. Love it!

    I had the 50mm 2.8 and dropped it so I had to have a replacement. This is by far a much more versatile lense than the 50mm. It's about the same quality as the 50mm and works great with video, even on my 60d.

    Great portrait lens that is lightweight with super sharp images for a steal of a price! I use as a travel lens also, it is very versatile and easy to slip into a pocket if I need to switch to a zoom lens.

    I use this in tandem with the 24mm STM lens. On my Rebel T4i, it has better bokeh and just the right amount of zoom to be practice as a walking around lens. f/2.8 at this price range is hard to beat.

    I bought this lens after seeing it in the store. I asked a worker what it was primarily used for and he told me. I have used it a few times and I really like it. The pictures are clear and the colors are nice.

    Bought this lens for its small size and great reviews. I'm not disappointed. Takes sharp photos and has a wide enough angle to get great indoor shots. Great lens for a lot of situations.

    I bought this lens couple days ago and i have to say that i'm very impressed. For only $200 its great. Picture quality and sharpness of the image and colors are amazing. Way better than 50mm f1.8. Highly recomended.

    This is a great, compact lens. Wish the f stops would go downt to 1.8 but it's not bad at all. I may reccomend the 50mm 1.8 over this.

    With the APS-C sensor this lens becomes more of a 55mm lens or the equivalent of the 50mm lens for full frame cameras. It is a sharp lens and a great value for the price on either form of Canon DSLR.

    I love my new 40 mm i had the 50 mm and need more in my small studio and I love the fixed lens. It take great photos and so small it is light weight so my Mark ii is not as heavy .. Great lens for the money

    I was not sure what I was getting into when I was buying my camera, but the sales associate talked me into buying a second lens, and I am glad he did. I almost never use the one that came with the camera.

    Went back and forth before buying it, but don't regret it. It definitely makes my canon dslr camera a lot lighter. Takes great portrait pics.

    This lens is sharp even wide open. This lens has great Canon color and contrast. It focuses instantly and is spot on all the time. It's tiny. What else is there. And it's basically free!

    I needed a close up-lens when working in low light conditions and needed one to use when my 70-200mm lens was not able to get up close. The f:2.8 allows me to work without a flash.

    This lens is by far the best purchase I have made for my camera. It is the perfect lens for getting that blurry background look. Love, love , love the 40mm lens!!
