    Nice photos but quite loud

    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.

    As a casual user that would have more auto settings used than manual, the lens is perfectly fine. As a walk around lens it is perfect. My experience was a bit different, where I felt my nifty fifty has better quality. The EF vs EF-S difference is apparent on a crop sensor. I use a 60D and it is true when they say with an EF lens you really hit a sweet spot on the glass while with the EF-S the quality isn't so great.

    Ok lens for the price. Was not bery satisfied with the feel of the focus in manual mode because ot feels like it is rubbing. I read online that this was ok. I just did not like it and felt like poor quality. Image wise it was ok. The 2.8 f stop was great. Overall you get what younpay for.

    For the price this lens does what it promotes. I was confused as to what lens to start with to do do basic "well focused" all around shots. The reviews helped, and I am happy with the shots I get with this lens.

    I was not impressed with the quality of the lens. It was not bad, just not what I was hoping for. I ended up returning it and buying a much better quality used lens for about the same price off of Ebay. I am much happier now.

    i bought the 40mm pancake lens & love it. so i got this one without hesitation as soon as it was available. but THIS LENS DOES NOT FIT THE CANON 6D. make sure you check to see if it is compatible with tour camera before buying.

    Product returned due to it being the incorrect lens that I fit my camera. It was ordered and was incorrect when it came in

    Pretty good lens considering the cost. Wish I had gone with an Ultra wide angle instead. Lens works decent.

    Bought this because I wanted a low cost wide angle lens. Canon does good work at every price level.
