The problem with using terms like "amazing image quality" and "fast focus" is that these will depend somewhat on what comparison you're basing it off. The image quality is amazing, and if you want better image quality you can have it, kind of, but it wont be amazingly different even if you're spending 10/15x the price. The images coming from this relatively cheap lens are some of the nicest I've taken, and it's a big step up from some lenses costing much more.

The aperture is f1.8 which is fine for 99.9% of everything, plus or minus 0.1%. Going for 1.2 or 1.4 is probably not worth the quadrupling or decupling (i'm sure that's the word) what you spend for 1 or 2 more notches you probably wont use unless you're a specialized specialist doing very special things occasionally. If you're coming from zoom lenses of f3.5 or f4 then you'll gain a nice chunk of space to play with which opens up a whole range of image types you didn't have as much access to before! There are 7 apeture blades, which is perhaps fewer than some much more pricey lenses, but the bokeh (out of focus highlights) looks nice, and shooting at f1.8 the bokeh is 100% spherical.

The autofocus is fast, though like basically every lens on the planet may struggle a bit in low light. It's not noisy but it's louder than other more recent STM motors. It's perhaps not the best lens for using during movie shooting for when you have to use onboard sound recording. Though it does have one strange side benefit of making cats sometimes look at you, which makes for nice portraits.

The body is light and sturdy. It's of a nice length so the focus ring is comfortable to use. Though being at the end means that using a lens hood is useful to stop your fingers wandering into the frame.

I bought this because I gained extra cashback from canon by buying two lense at once and it made sense! Also the reviews have said its much better than the 50mm f1.8 prime (which I already love) so I thought I'd give it a go. I have a 600d and I am loving this so far. It's sooooo small and lightweight. Makes me feel like I've got a smaller bridge camera. In fact when you first put it on it looks like you haven't got a lens on the camera at all! :D But the sharpness is very good. And you just get that little bit more in the frame than a 50mm prime - which is perfect. For example with my 50mm I've been finding lately that taking pictures of people when there's more than one person in the frame (say 3 for instance) that I have to be so far away to get them in the shot. I know that's probably not the purpose of that lens. But with this 40mm you can get more in which is fantastic. I can't comment too much on sharpness as I haven't inspected any images up close yet. I think this may replace my 50mm prime however! I wish I'd paid the extra at the beginning and got this before my 50mm.

Amazon has been a great supplier of this Canon fixed lens after a previous marketplace supplier failed to deliver. Thrilled that I can now take photos with the focussed subject up close and the blurred background. It makes me feel like a proper photographer...even though I am a DSLR novice.

Good quality pics for decent price. Used this on my D700.
Just be aware this is definitely not for video as the autofocus motor is so noise.

Casing is very cheap, but that's expected for this budget price.

I LOVE THIS LENS!!

It's a Canon 50mm prime lens and everyone knows how good the 50's are.

Excellent product for the price and a great lens to have in any kit whether that be Landscape, Portrait or general day to day photography.

Good job Canon
