The Sentiment Analysis of key attributes from the reviews is summarized as follows:
the EF 40mm ƒ/2.8 STM is a tiny "pancake" lens, and is compatible with all of Canon's professional and consumer DSLR cameras
The Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM barely juts out from your camera, but is capable of capturing some impressive images.
The Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM is an appealingly simple, compact and capable lens that's equally at home on an APS-C or full-frame DSLR camera
its focusing motor was much quieter than the 18-55mm kit lens sold with many of Canon's APS-C format DSLRs
Canon SLR owners who want the image quality of a prime in a tiny, relatively inexpensive package.
an EF-S lens, it's also incompatible with Canon’s high-end, full-frame DSLRs, like the EOS 5D Mark III. But those tradeoffs create some real upsides: This lens is seriously tiny, lightweight, quiet, and cheap. At $150, it's a heck of a bargain.
The new Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 lens is the second one that Canon has equipped with its new Stepping Motor Technology (STM) system that allows that allows not just fingertip editing, but also the ability to provide continuous tracking of moving objects both rapidly and quietly, making it perfectly able to answer the exigencies of video.
Pancake lenses seem to becoming somewhat fashionable at the moment, due to their small size. Whether having a slim lens is that beneficial on a full size SLR body is open to debate, but at least the optical performance of this lens alone, makes it well worthy of consideration
