Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM Pancake Lens

Never knowingly undersold

Product information

Switch between candid portraits, relaxed snapshots and vivid filming all without changing your lens. Fast, smooth focus and an adaptable focal length that balances angle and range make this lens an essential addition to any Canon user’s arsenal.

Highlights:

  • Never be without your EOS. The compact pancake EF 40mm f/2.8 STM is very thin, so you’ll always be able to take your DSLR with you.
  • Fast, accurate autofocusing ensures pin-sharp images even in tough conditions. The Movie Servo AFM with STM uses stepping-motor technology for smooth, quiet autofocus when filming on compatible Canon DSLRs.
  • An f/2.8–22 aperture range provides control over depth of field, giving you the freedom to restrict or extend focus as required. A fast maximum aperture allows hand-held shooting in low light without using flash.
  • A versatile 40mm focal length is great for travel. Tackle everything from portraits to landscape and street photography. Great image quality right across the frame, thanks to an aspherical lens design and Super Spectra coatings.
  • For use with EF mount Canon DSLR cameras
