  • Reviews around pancake (4.47 of 5)

    Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM Lens

    • This is a great little pancake lens that turns my EOS100D into a straight forward 35mm camera
    • great pancake lens for my canon 70d, steps up to something like 37mm with the crop frame
    • This pancake lens feels very sturdy and is very compact
    • The photos are all very blurry even in auto non-flash and the edges aren't crisp.. really disappointed as I really really wanted to like product and after testing two they didn't meet expectation.
    • It's a nice little pancake lens, and it seems to do it's job well

  • Reviews around walk (4.30 of 5)

    Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM Lens

    • This lens is quickly becoming my favorite walk around lens
    • It does alright for landscapes and is a good walk around lens on my Canon
    • The colors are nice and rich, and it’s a good walk around lens.
    • The photos are all very blurry even in auto non-flash and the edges aren't crisp.. really disappointed as I really really wanted to like product and after testing two they didn't meet expectation.
    • Because it's so lite and compact this little pancake lens makes a good walk around option

    Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM Lens

    • probably makes a difference :-o)Anyway, if you want a cheap wide angle, get this lens
    • Its angle of view isn’t as large as I would like, and the lack of a zoom destroys any ability to “crop” the scene with the lens; however, it is a good angle of view, is very sharp, very fast, and a pleasure to use on the camera
    • I take it wherever I go - its nice to have a quick AF wide-angle indoor that's not super expensive.

    • Great wide angle lens, I use it all the time in tight spaces like indoors

  • Reviews around background blur (2.02 of 5)

    Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM Lens

    • Pros : excellent photos in bright lightVery sharp when area is in focusPleasant background blurring or bokeh at wide apertureCan focus on very near objects - does macros wellFlat and lightCons : indoors or outdoors after sunset seems to require very high ISO or a flashFocusing is quiet, but does not track fast enough for normal video
    • Like any camera a tripod or monopod enhances low light shooting - when the venues allow them!!!Autofocus works well and the transition to and from manual for certain shots is quick such as into museum display cases and wildlife in foliage that could otherwise spoof an autofocus
    • Great for general purpose shooting, as well as for selfies when you hold your camera at arm’s length.
    • Don't get this lens if you're looking for a lot of background bokeh though; due to the focal length and maximum aperture you can only get a small amount of background blur when focusing about 5-10 feet away (see the attachment).
    • The photos are all very blurry even in auto non-flash and the edges aren't crisp.. really disappointed as I really really wanted to like product and after testing two they didn't meet expectation.

  • Reviews around noise (1.26 of 5)

    Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM Lens

    • It performs great a s a walk around lens as well, though you dont have a zoom range like on a traditional walk around lens it gives great wide angle shots as well as close ups second to none
    • Within two months started to make a very loud clicking noise when trying to focus
    • If it's constantly trying to auto focus, the noise drives me crazy
    • but I had two products sent and both had a weird humming noise, focus hunts a bit too
    • Motor makes a funny noise when trying to focus but will not focus
