Lens Review
Introduction | Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM lens performance | Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM versus competition | Conclusion

With strong performance across most of the DxOMark tests and a video-friendly ultra-quiet stepping AF motor, the Canon 40mm f/2.8 STM is a good choice for anyone looking for an entry-level standard prime lens. The 40mm lens delivers edge-to-edge sharpness at various apertures with no distortion and minimal chromatic aberration, and light transmission is accurate. The only downside is some strong vignetting at the widest apertures.
