Canon 40mm f/2.8 STM

Reader Grzegorz G writes:

Focal Length 50 mm FF is that I rarely used and the size and weight of the Sigma 50/1.4 DG HSM A for me is not acceptable, unlike in the case of the lens such as 24/1,4, 15/2,8 or 17/4 shift that certainly would be my
inseparable companions in future (especially because of the capture of the night sky and architecture)

For the convenience and low-light situations which to choose 50mm 1.4 or 1.8 from Canon or maybe 40mm f/2.8 STM which you rated really high and may play role “in emergency”.

DIGLLOYD: I really like the way the 40/2.8 STM draws wide open. See the review of the Canon 40mm f/2.8 STM in DAP.

While it’s no threat to the optical quality of the Sigma 50/1.4A, it is ultra compact and at about $146, it’s a no-brainer for travel ($50 instant rebate and 2% rewards and free shipping bring real price down to $146).
