Pros: Light, small, crisp

Cons: Very slow

Opinion: I'm going to start with his only flaw. Af is exasperatedly slow, at least on 6D. Removed this small defect, in relation to the price that is used (100€), it is one of the best Canon optics on FF. Great for street, portrait and landscape. Always sharp, even in peripheral areas, beautiful vivid colors. You put it in your pocket and mounted on the 6D, which is the lighter FF reflex Canon, make it a compact one that enters the pocket of a winter jacket. It's an obligatory purchase.

Pros: So small and light that it looks like a cap. Metal bayonet, sharpness to all diaphragms, cheap.

Cons: Nothing for what it costs.

Opinion: Great for landscapes, for my tastes a little less in portraiture where I find the 50STM better, but having said that, even in this field it defends itself well. It transforms the 6DII into a lightweight compact and returns always noteworthy results regarding the uniformity of the yield from corner to corner (which is not so obvious on a lens of this price range). Together with the 24STM I used on the 70D and the 50STM that I still use with satisfaction, for me it represents another small wonder by Canon, with a decidedly unbeatable quality /price ratio. At this price, parameters such as the speed of AF not lightning, but more than fast enough and the lack of stabilizer can not be considered defects, given the philosophy with which this beautiful lens was built. Vote 10.

Pros: very small, very light, economical

Cons: af slow

Opinion: a perfective lens. I didn't find any optical defects. maybe a vignette visible at 2.8, but it corrects itself in posts with a click. surely obvious flaws I did not find any. for what it costs and what it does is a MUST. the only flaw is the slightly slow af compared to modern lenses. on the 6d is not always precise. and because it's very sharp, you can immediately see it. among other things he also used salgado, you can see in the documentary the salt of the earth ...

Pros: Small, light, quality, price

Cons: Blurry hard unpleasant

Opinion: Fantastic lens for value for money. The angle of field is in my opinion perfect; the slowness of autofocus is not a problem. I bought the lampshon because I consider it indispensable for the reasons that everyone knows. These goals give everyone the ability to get quality files. I always set the sharpness to zero both in the car and in raw on pc. The sharpness of this lens even at full opening is excellent for me. It does not seem to me that the vignetting is excessive. I would add that I noticed the very ugly and nervous blurr. (only flaw for me)

Pros: Pocket, excellent optical quality, flare resistance

Cons: I don't know... maybe a little bit of vignette and the AF a little slow

Opinion: I find this lens really brilliant, it's really tiny to be a FF lens, mounted on 6D protruding a few mm from the handle. I also like the focal point, which, let's face it, is very close to a 35. I find that for the price it has is absolutely a best buy to turn your reflex into a compact FF of high quality, maybe to carry with you without commitment when leaving home. I pair it with both 6D and 7D mk II, but I think on FF it's just his death. I also used it for some set portraits and it behaves very well, it has a really very reduced distortion. As mentioned by others the AF is a bit slow, but nothing terrible and anyway I think that for the focus that it has is not a big problem, since with a 40mm you make mostly static shots. If you are looking for an optics for street or at least to travel around the city without obligation you have found it. In my opinion if you are going to use it only on aps-c it is better to orient yourself on the EF-S 24 pancake, which turns out to be a 40mm on FF.
