5.0 out of 5 stars Superb!! and after another year even superber!, 15 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM Lens (Accessory)
Light weight, tack sharp and reasonably fast. This little lens really punches above its weight producing beautiful portraits, landscapes - you name it. Goes with me everywhere! NEVER leave it at home!

Edit:
Had this lens for over a year now so I thought I would update the review.
This really is a fantastic lens! When I want to travel light I stick this on my 450D and go. At other times it takes up so little space that I always have it available. Great for indoors use where my 50mm f/1.8 is just too long.
Mine is one of those affected by the AF problem where is stops working if it gets squeezed meaning removing and replacing it to bring it back to life. I have never experienced the problem! I now have a 70D that has the lens firmware update capability but I haven't bothered doing it yet. If it ever freezes I will update it but otherwise I will just continue to enjoy the magnificent results.

One minor gripe (tongue firmly in cheek!)- I decided to wait until the price dropped below £200 before buying it. Paid £190 something. Look at the price now ;-) It was a bargain at £190 - at £150 it is a steal!!
