Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 Pancake Lens Review

In November of 2014, Canon introduced us to its newest member of their low-cost prime lens family, the EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM pancake lens. Canon gave us the 40mm version in 2012, and hoped to up the stakes by adding a wide-angle version this past year. Sitting at the extreme end of what can be consid….

  1. This lens LIVES on my camera. I have others that are good, maybe even better, but this tends to be my go-to for wandering around, travel, macro with extension tubes… justabout everything. Easily my current favorite!

  2. Love this lens. It is by far the cheapest lens I own but it is a top little lens and it spends plenty of time on my 80D. It is great for travel. I went to Peru recently and this was the only lens I used for the entire trip ( I had others but did not use them). Lightweight, inconspicuous and great when hiking up mountains and walking around cities.

  3. Love this lens. Lightweight, decently fast at 2.8, cheap, great sharpness! What’s not to like? Only thing I wish was different, wish it was an ef not an ef-s Lens..but still a great lens

  4. I love this lens. Lovely natural perspective and fast enough that I have even tried it with astrophotography. Ridiculously fast focusing as well. And all of this at a really good price.

    If you have a crop sensor Canon, you have to have one of these in your camera bag.

  5. It is a fantastic, sharp and inexpensive lens for aps-c also great for video. I use it with my 80d. For the price, it is totally impossible to go wrong. One of the best Canon lenses for APS-C

  6. This lens paired with the Canon SL1 makes a great lightweight travel package. The lens produces sharp images and is unobtrusive out in the street. The price is right, too.

  7. I rented it once about 3 years ago and did not like how it performed. I gave it a try again last summer and was disappointed again. The killer for me was the awful noise it makes when focussing, it is louder than the 50 f1.8 II which I owned for 2 yrs. I had the exact same experience with the 40mm f2.8 and returned it.
