Anyone have a problem buying a refurbish from Canon? I was thinking about picking this lens up from them. Thoughts?

May i ask how you've done this? I realize 40mm prob isn't the best length for macro, but its certainly cheaper than that 100f2.8L I've been eying.

I used 6D + EF 40mm f/2.8 STM + 13mm Extension Tube. If I understand it correctly, extension tubes give more extra magnification with shorter focal length lenses, so it is reasonable to use them with the 40 or even wider lenses. However, the short working distance will require to get very close to the subject and most living creatures don't like that, so they would simply escape from you. Long macro lenses are much better for that. I'm talking about 150-200 mm, while 90-105 mm is an average. 135L would give you more working distance, but two times less magnification than the 40.

ok, picked up the canon ef25 extension tube... it pairs nicely with the 40mm... since i also just purchased a 35f1.4, i think i'll be using the 40mm exclusively with the extension tube.

I have a hard time believing it is not brand new. Perfect copy. Like I said I ordered directly from Canon. I did a lot of research and its appears that their refurbished items go though a lot of Quality Control checks. Some argued they are checked better then the new items.

This lens is excellent was a great purchase, I already use it as a good discrete walk around lens. From what I can see great shots wide open.

ordered it... I was considering getting the 35mm 2.0 but decided against it. I'm probably going to keep my sigma 1.4 for now but personally if the 40mm is going to give me some great results I will sell the sigma and buy either 85mm or 100mm for portraits and keep my 40mm as an everyday use.

If your signature is right, if I only was to get one lens I would probably have the 24-70 or 24-105. Do you have more then you have in your sig?

At this moment I only have sigma's 35mm, and i'm not really interested in zooms. I wanted to get a good 35mm and 85mm and just really get to know them for few months. I feel like zooms will make me too lazy. My plan was to have a nice compact 35mm lens for everyday use and a good portrait lens (85mm)

Does this one count? Canon 40 mm pancake reversed on a 36mm extension tube. Spider is the size of the ball in a ballpoint pen.
