    Great, solid compact lens. It s a nice back up for my 50mm and isn't intrusive when shooting portraits.

    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.

    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.

    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 have a general purpose lens for shooting between medium and long distances - but I wanted to get more shots of people. I really wanted to take more photos of people and pets so I picked up this lens and I couldn't be happier - it delivers all I could want and more. For a reasonable price you get a fun little piece of equipment to add to your Canon camera! Love it.

    I was between this lens and the Canon - EF 50mm f/1.8 II Standard Lens. I went with the 40mm because I had read the images were crisper and better quality. After testing it out, I was so amazed with the capabilities. It's a great leans for close up shots and portraits. Spend the extra money and get the better quality.
