  • Photography peeps ...

    I have some miles on a credit card to convert to ... well, whatever I want. I found a potential purchase - a new Canon lens. Any photography girls (or guys) have any thoughts on this one - Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM Lens? I love how compact it is, and thought it might be a good basic lens to add to my arsenal. I have a 75-300mm lens already, so don't need another one of those (and I have a 250mm one, too, I think).

    I don't have that one but like that it goes to 2.8

      Pancake! LOL I shoot Nikon so I will be of no help here, but as Kirsta said, it's nice to have a fast-ish lens!

        farrahjobling -- any thoughts on this lens? I'm thinking that it might be good for an everyday kind of lens, and with the 'pancake' profile, it certainly would be a good one to travel with ... plus, zero cost to me, since I'd be "purchasing" it with miles that I've already accumulated on my credit card! LOL

          Hi Kat! I don't have that one...it's compact and light, great for travel. What body do you have? Full Frame or Crop sensor?

            Canon Rebel body - earlier model ... believe it is crop sensor

          So the lens arrived yesterday - it's pretty compact. I think I'll take it out for a test run this weekend ... now to think of somewhere to go ... maybe the waterfront?

              farrahjobling -- I think this will be a great travel lens. It certainly has a much smaller profile and is really lightweight. The zoom capabilities are pretty limited, but it's so quiet - you don't hear the lens moving at all. Good, crisp, clear pictures -- this one I took inside, on a cloudy day. I had the light from the window behind me ... zero processing, this is just as it comes out of the camera. I love the depth of field that it created.

                  I've been wanting a pancake lens for a while now. I'm glad to hear you like it Kat. I have a Sigma 35 1.4 so I'm wondering how different the photos will be? The Sigma lens isn't lightweight for sure so that's an advantage of the pancake one!
