Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Takes sharp pictures for the price
If you own a Canon APS-C sensor DSLR, this lens will fast become part of your essential traveling kit. Its "pancake" profile and low weight make it too portable to ignore, and when you add Canon's impeccable build quality and the lens' light sensitivity into the equation, it all adds up to "I have to have one."
You can shoot a huge variety of subjects, near and far, with this lens due to its versatile, 38mm equivalent fixed focal length. The newly designed stepping motor for the autofocus system and micro-stepping drive control for the aperture mechanism is incredibly quiet, making it perfect for video capture.

Takes sharp pictures for the price
You can't beat this as your main walk around lens on a crop sensor camera. Paired with my T6s this thing is unstoppable. The low light performance is even better than I imagined and read about in reviews. LOVE IT!
Great small lens. Work really well with my SL1. Easy to carry and works really well for all uses. Takes sharp pictures, day and night, the speed eliminates the need to use a flash. The size and light weight make it easy to carry - great for street photography. Highly recommend!
Pros: Speed, size, value for the price, solid feel.
When comparing this lens to the EF-S 50mm f/1.8, I like this lens a little more on a crop body because it is similar to a traditional 35mm lens [actually 38.88mm for T3i]. It makes it a little more useful in just walk around picture taking. The build quality and STM are also better. Overall, this lens performs to my expectations, although, perhaps not as high as professional photographers, but for quality and value it is hard to beat. As long as you have reasonable expectations, this lens will probably surpass them. Also, for video this lens performs well also. Looking forward to having more fun with this lens!
Pros: Overall Value Nice, sharp pictures Much less motor noise than 50mm f/1.8 Small pkg and lightweight Nice walk around lens
Cons: Not much room for fingers, but it's a pancake lens, so expected Might only be my example, but interface to T3i camera body seems overly tight, almost to the point I thought I was installing incorrectly
Canon has produced yet again!this pancake lens Is a great addition to any camera enthusiast's camera bag. It is light weight, compact and packed with potential. It produces crisp images with incredible bokeh. Image not bright enough? No problem!, take it back an f stop and you'll be amazed at how much of a difference it makes! Easy to use, fun to play with and even more impressive once you see the end results! You'll love this lens
This is a great compact lens to compliment any Canon EOS camera. It has a wide angle view and low light ability. It is extremely small and light. It produces excellent quality photos.
Pros: Light weight Small Excellent photo quality Canon optics
