Canon Has a New Pancake Lens

pancake lens

Small, lightweight, and inconspicuous. Canon’s new lens makes a great addition to any photographers arsenal. 

We could go into detail on some of the things that could be done with a lens like this. But why drag on? Let’s get to business here with some specifications!

What are we looking at here? Well, what we have is an EF 40mm f/2.8 STM Pancake Lens made my Canon. But what makes this so special? This lens uses Canons new STM technology which allows for quiet and smooth continuous shooting. At a 2.8 aperture, lighting should be no issue at all. Mix that with the fact this lens is only an inch deep and 4.6oz and you have the perfect lens for running about town.  In addition to this, the lens’s special coating allow for exceptional color balance.

This lens can be picked up for $199 over at B&H.
