    Great low profile lens for stills...close ups and landscapes. Photos are crisp and colors are great. It seems to have trouble at times with the auto focus...and it is very loud! Very pronounced noise during auto focus that pretty much ruins videos...even with normal subject and background noise. Maybe I got a dud lens...bought it right before vacation and it is past the return period. I would recommend buyers try this lens with video before the return period ends and decide if the results are acceptable.

    So far, lens has proven useful. I'm shooting photos, so noise isn't an issue to me.

    After reading mix reviews regarding AF noise, I decided the only way to know is to buy one. I have a Canon 80D and 2 non STM lens. When shooting videos, they both make a lot of noise. Both on camera and when viewing videos. After trying it out for myself, I can tell you this lens does not have any AF noise that I can hear both when shooting videos and viewing. It does make a little noise when shooting stills. Focusing is very fast, but smooth. Not like the USM lens. They're fast, but jerky. This lens is made for shooting videos. At $130, it's no L lens. Image is sharp. Color is ok. Bokeh is nothing to write home about, but acceptable. If you intend to shoot videos without AF noise, get an STM lens.

    This is one of my favorite lens compared to the 50. Even tho the it's a 2.8 it has given me a lot of outstanding pictures. It doesn't create as much of a loud noise when focusing. This has updated technology in the lens not like the old 50. I have used it for pictures and video Portrait and outdoors. Now I wish the came out with more pan cake lens. Camera 70D

    Love this lens. Super compact, which is perfect for blending in with the surroundings! Plan on using this for street photography, and weddings. The large f2.8 aperture creates good "background blur" and is also good for low light situations. Solid grab and go lens. Only down side is if you plan to shoot video, the autofocus mechanism is a little loud. I shoot stills so this is not a problem for me.
