Sentiments around lens ( 942 )

Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM Lens

Like everyone says, this lens is excellent, as well as an excellent price.

I love this lens, it has great build quality and great picture quality.

This is the perfect travel lens, and it also doubles as quite a nice product photography lens.

My experience with this lens on a 7D and SL1 (100D) has been quite excellent.

This lens takes amazing pictures,,

Much better quality than the kit lens, and I find the limitation of the prime lens pretty fun.



Sentiments around image quality ( 24 )

Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM Lens

I love the light weight and superb image quality.

Awesome Image Quality!

But the image quality is amazing.

Available at a reasonable price and excellent image quality.

I use it on my Canon XT and the image quality is great.

The image quality is great.



Sentiments around 18-55 ( 22 )

Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM Lens

The color rendition was quite nice, definitely better than what my 18-55 kit lens can produce.

For those that already got the 24mm, don’t fret, since it is also a great lens, and something it has more than the 18-55mm is it has better sharpness.

It was sharp, and had better overall clarity than my 18-55mm lens had from center to corner.

I wasn't sure what I was getting into for the price, but in reading the reviews I figured I couldn't go wrong as I am preparing for a backpacking trip in California and wanted something more compact and crisp than the stock 18-55mm, shooting on my Canon T5.

Unless you need to stop motion in low light, the 18-55mm is probably still going to work just fine and produce good images.

I use it with an Canon EOS Rebel SL1 Digital SLR with 18-55mm STM Lens, and I like how the low profile of the lens keeps the camera compact when carrying it.



Sentiments around kit lens ( 43 )

Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM Lens

Much better quality than the kit lens, and I find the limitation of the prime lens pretty fun.

Great lens, a great addition to photography kit.

The color rendition was quite nice, definitely better than what my 18-55 kit lens can produce.

Focus is great and fast (faster than the kit lens for sure).

This is a no brainer, having a 24mm and 50mm prime lens in your kit is basic and a great way to start shooting with.

Sharper and with a more open aperture than the kit lens, so it has been on my camera a lot!



Sentiments around camera ( 150 )

Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM Lens

Solidly made lens and a perfect addition to my camera bag!

Not the best lens in the world in terms of quality, but the size is amazing and it has lived on my camera since I got it.

On an APS-C camera, it gives a terrific "walking around" focal length, as long as you're willing to zoom with your feet.

Great addition to anyone's camera bag.

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.

Great portrait lens for you canon camera.



Sentiments around canon ( 152 )

Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM Lens

LOVE this lens!Looks amazing on my Canon 77d.

I use it with the Canon SL1 and it is awesome.

I have Canon 70D and this little guy is definitely my best friend.

I use it on my Canon XT and the image quality is great.

Excellent job Canon.

Thanks Canon for this amazing lens



Sentiments around low light ( 52 )

Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM Lens

It's great for portraits, decently fast in low light conditions, compact, light weight, AF motor is quiet & at an excellent price point.

Great versatile lens for all-purpose use and pretty fast for low light shooting.

Use it at wedding receptions great low light perfect with a cropped sensor = to about 38mm.

Works great in low light, indoor and outdoor

The perspective is incredibly natural and it is quite capable of dealing with low light.

Took the place of my 18 to 55, better quality pis, and awesome low light.

Video looks great for online.

It is great for video (blogger) and pictures.

Quiet focusing great for video work.

Sentiments around photos ( 78 )

Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM Lens

 Sharp and wide photos with amazing quality.

Clear and beautiful photos, especially portraits.

I take doll photos as well, and it's amazing for that!

Works great and takes great photos.

I wish it come with the UV-protector but the lens is amazing, take good photos

The photos come out very sharp and it's wonderfully light.



Sentiments around focal length ( 34 )

Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM Lens

I like the focal length and speed of the lens, and the pancake size is great.

The wide angle is definitely noticeable and the set focal length produces some beautiful pictures.

It's a great focal length for crop sensors.

On an APS-C camera, it gives a terrific "walking around" focal length, as long as you're willing to zoom with your feet.

The images are sharp and clear and the f-stop/focal length combination is phenomenal.

Great lens for a crop sensor focal length.



Sentiments around auto focus ( 25 )

Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM Lens

Great quality, gorgeous look to your images, and a quick auto focus.

Awesome lens and it had a very smooth auto focus.

I enjoyed using it for walk-around photography, takes a decent wide angle shot, does well in low light settings, very quiet for taking videos, and pretty quick on auto focus.

Auto focus is reasonably fast.

Finally, the auto focus is quick and quiet.

It has a fairly quiet auto focus, and the ring is really smooth for manual focus.

Sentiments around prime lens ( 40 )

Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM Lens

Much better quality than the kit lens, and I find the limitation of the prime lens pretty fun.

Great prime lens my favorite for video

Very nice and fast prime lens.

I absolutely love this prime lens.

It's a prime lens, so you're gonna have to be more creative with your composition, but that's part of why this lens is great.

Owning Canon's other fabulous prime lens, the Canon EF 50mm f/1.



Sentiments around wide angle ( 57 )

Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM Lens

Great wide angle lens.

Perfect wide angle.

Nice, natural wide angle for shooting pictures of my family and friends.

The wide angle is definitely noticeable and the set focal length produces some beautiful pictures.

This wide angle, relatively inexpensive lens is perfect!!

The wide angle is fabulous.



Sentiments around manual focus ( 22 )

Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM Lens

Using on 60D is a little annoying because of the focus system and how it lags in manual focus since my camera is older and wasn't meant for this leans, but once you get used to it it's not a big deal.

Manual focus on the lens did not work at all.

Manual or semi manual focus mode is nice, with a simple ring, no 'infinity' setting, so you really have to guess or be able to see your target.

Cannot focus at all, auto or manual.

Also the noise occurs even while recording in manual focus while you twist the ring.

I bought this lens three months ago, and sometime between then and now the manual focus stopped working - I have used mostly AF.
