    This lens is pretty darn nice for the money you're paying. Way better than the kit lens that comes with your camera. Lets in a lot of light and takes some really nice pictures.

    Although I really didn't need this lens as I have the focal length already covered, I bought it anyways because I was intrigued by it's small size and reasonable price. Being that the lens is so small, it's actually quite fun to just take a stroll and randomly snap photos. The image quality is very good.

    This lens is hard to beat for the price. Image quality and auto focus are better than the EF 50mm F1.8 lens for marginally more money. The small size of this "pancake" lens is a real benefit as well. I have not been able to use it very much yet but impression so far is that it was money well spent.

    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!

    Bought this lens the other day and so far it takes great pictures. Who am I kidding? I'm a great photographer! This pancake just gives me a bit of an edge ;) Really, it's a great lens, it's affordable, has great dof, sharp, good contrast, is lightweight which is good for long walks, pretty discrete because of its size, etc. I had the 50mm 1.8 nifty fifty and so far I'd choose the 40mm over the 50mm since the 50mm at 1.8 doesn't produce as sharp pictures as the 40mm at 2.8.
