Pros: Great colors, handling, low purchase cost

Cons: I have nothing to blame him

Opinion: Here I free all my inspiration, almost loving if not for the lens itself, for what it manages to give me in terms of fun. Not to say that, since this is a fixed objective, it makes me express it in a dynamic and creative way; I'm surprised how a pancake lens can give back so much in terms of satisfaction and appreciation. Thanks to this lens I started my timid approach to photogr Street and B&W, experiencing the potential that it manages to translate in order of beauty. Just purchased, immediately after purchasing the EF 50mm f/1.8 STM, and with great enthusiasm, thanks to the short opening after yet another lockdown, I immediately worked to test it, on the first city nearby: Pavia, taking home really a piece of heart. I am very happy with this goal, and its compactness makes me smile, imagining how much effort I made with another expensive zoom lens, but that from today I leave punctually at home, and in a beautiful pose.

Pros: Weight, size, sharpness, price

Cons: AF a bit slow

Opinion: Weight, size: makes any machine a compact to carry in your pocket. A world opens up to you, my 6D is reborn. Aperture and sharpness: already usable at F/2.8, with sharpness (at that opening) better than the EF50mm F/1.8 STM and comparable to that of the EF35mm F/2.0 IS STM. Perfect for almost any genre: portraits, streets, landscapes. Having a bit slow AF (at least on the Canon EOS RP), maybe it's not perfect for videos. 130 euros used: what more to ask for?

Pros: Weight- Sharpness

Cons: Slow-blurred AF slightly hard-lens stretching for focus, but space inside there's none

Opinion: excellent lens for sharpness and contrast, very light and transportable to use for travel when you want excellent image quality. I found his only limit for portraits set to my daughter, since he started crawling he moves faster than the stm engine, so I decided to replace it with the 35is. The blurry at 2.8 is not really very pleasant, I find the one of 28 2.8 is more pleasant despite being much wider. When you focus endlessly the lens is at its minimum length, as you approach the lens comes out of the barrel and it's not very comfortable when you put the camera back in your bag, but the space of the barrel is so little that I don't think you could do otherwise.

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.
