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

Canon's EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM is a highly portable pancake lens, ideal for travel and street photography, and with a large f/2.8 maximum aperture it allows hand-held low-light shooting. 

A highly portable pancake lens that’s ideal for travel and street photography. Its advanced optical design ensures great image quality, while a large f/2.8 maximum aperture allows hand-held low-light shooting. STM focusing delivers smooth, near-silent AF when capturing movies.

Portable "pancake" design

At just 22.8 mm deep, and weighing just 125g, the EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM is a highly portable lens that lets you take your EOS anywhere. Its diminutive design makes it discreet too – ideal for street photography.

Natural perspective

The 24mm focal length when used on an APS-C EOS body gives the same angle of view as a 38mm lens on a full-frame DSLR. That’s close to that of the human eye, so your pictures will have a natural look and feel about them.

Smooth, quite focusing

Near-silent STM focusing locks on quickly when shooting still photos, and provides smooth focus transitions when capturing movies, for footage that’s free from distracting focusing noise.

Wide aperture for low-light shooting

A fast maximum aperture of f/2.8 lets in lots of light, letting you shoot in dark conditions without using flash. It’s ideal for creating shallow depth-of-field effects too, letting you isolate your subject against a soft, out-of-focus background.

Advanced optical design

Enjoy razor-sharp performance right across the frame, with high resistance to flare and coloured fringing. Get as near as 16cm to small subjects for a close-up view of the world.

After buying the Canon EF 50mm as my first lens purchase for my Canon M10, I found the 50mm a great far range lense but also needed something for close up video with the same result and this lens gave me that.

I am lower than a novice so if you only use the default settings and want a nice blurry background, then this is the lens. If you want a super blurry background and can handle being about 5 meters away from the camera, then get the 50mm.

A great buy indeed and I'm very happy having three lense available

As expected, best service ever from Outdoor Photo! Super fast delivery and products always received in perfect condition. Few others can match your level of service. I simply love doing business with you guys, you always make your customers feel valued.

About the product:
This lens is designed for a crop sensor camera. So not a true wide angle lens like what you'd typically expect this focal length to be on a Full Frame body. On a crop body this focal length is closer to 40mm in Full Frame terms so don't expect super wide angle shots should you buy this little lens, but that said....this is a brilliant little lens for its price.

If you own a 50mm prime for your APS-C you'd know that it was a fantastic buy, but the 50mm is not designed for tighter areas especially indoors. So this is where this little 24mm comes in handy.

The 24mm will give you similar picture quality as your Nifty Fifty but allow you quite a bit more manoeuvrability in smaller spaces/areas.

Maximum aperture might only be f/2.8 but handles lower light conditions with similar ease as the 50mm f/1.8. I have not noticed any difference in speed between my newly acquired 24mm and my old faithful 50mm, but the focal length of my new 24mm has already helped a great deal in those tighter areas.

As much as you have zoom lenses covering similar focal ranges, I have to say I simply love my primes as I found focussing a bit more reliable than a zoom that could potentially, by just accidentally adjusting focal distance (even if it's ever so slightly) while taking a picture, cause you to lose focus and/sharpness in your images. So far neither my 50mm nor my 85mm primes have disappointed in this area, and from what I can see neither will my latest addition...the 24mm.

I have fallen in love with this little lens and can already see it is probably going to stay on my camera for a very long time.

It's a great walkabout lens but does not detract from its capability to take a portrait or even that closeup shot of decor or those Wedding rings.

Another advantage is its size. It does not attract as much attention as your zooms when moving around in public. But besides size, one obvious reason to get this lens is its weight. No need for dragging around all that lumpy weight, that many lenses add to your camera when you do decide to go shooting with this little guy. Definitely making walking around with your camera a little easier.

The best part of this lens....it's price.
Most people who are into photography should be able to afford it. And no matter if you're a Pro or just starting out, If you're looking for a no-fuss everyday prime lens for your crop body camera.....this is definitely one you should consider adding to your kit.

Your camera bag absolutely needs this

If you love the nifty 50, you will be smitten with this one. Perfectly neutral and natural perspective. The small form factor takes some getting used to, but it is a joy to work with. The fast f/2.8 allows you to play for longer without a flash. I have even used it for some star trail astrophotography. The focus is very fast, second only to my two Nano lenses. I absolutely adore this little lens and it is cheap enough that no-one with a Canon crop sensor camera has the excuse not to have it in their bag.

My most recent purchase in terms of lenses. Bought it for a car launch shoot inside a shopping mall at night, so lighting was going to be a problem. I own a 50mm 1.8, but that is too far zoomed in to get the shots I need.

24mm is just wide enough without creating any serious image warping around the edges. Vignetting is visible at f2.8, but go down to f4 and it is pretty much gone. EF-S mount is a bit restrictive due to only being able to be used on APS-C bodies, but it falls into the "its so cheap just buy it anyway category".

It delivered great quality shots in low light and I am very happy with my purchase.

Great Lens

This lens has become a permanent fixture on my Canon 650D, even after owning it for a few months. The sharpness and depth at 2.8 is incredible. A lot more than I anticipated.
The lens is solid and thanks to the metal mount, feels a lot more premium than the price tag lets on.

This is a great carry-around lens. I've found it great for portraits and with the close focusing distance, macro shots are also on point.

Perfect addition
