I just sold my 40 after picking up the 50. And I also have the 24 STM, from what I noticed while shooting the 40 is a great lens and is sharp wide open @ 2.8. With that in mind the 50 is just as sharp when shooting @ 2.8 or even wider if needed. I only sold the 40 because it seemed a bit odd to have a 40 and a 50, and I bought the 50 for the times when I might need a little more LL capability. I love the STM lenses and i have gotten great shots with the 24, 40, and the 50.

The 24 STM is a great lens for crop bodies IMO.

Mike, is the 40 sharper than the 50

They are both very similar at f/2.8 f/4 f/5.6 etc.... http://www.the-digital-picture.com …omp=0&FLIComp=0​&APIComp=2 (external link)

I plan to keep both, but if I could have only one, it would be the 50mm STM just because it can do f/1.8

If you really want a small lens and don't need the f/1.8 aperture, then maybe the 40mm STM would be your choice.

Just got the 50mm yesterday, I'm looking formward to try it this weekend. Now I have both 40mm and 50mm, I'm very curious how they compare because 40mm is probably ma favorite lens, sharp and tiny in size.

Quick evening stroll in the city... focus on 6D is as fast as with pancake. All shots @ F/1.8:

Just picked mine up this arvo. Have browsed through the thread, but haven't spotted this, but is the lens correction data available yet for this lens in DPP? Sorry if I've missed it & has been posted. Oh yeah, love it so far. AF seems dead nuts on accurate & consistent wide open. Taken 30 odd test type shots mostly in lowish light with it so far on my 6D, & yet to even remotely look like missing focus. Off to a great start :) I think it's already nudging the 40 pancake out of prime position in my camera bag :)

Still no quality time with the lens, just a snap here and there... all @F/1.8 except the clouds.

What the what?!?!?

How in the world did you manage to pull that shot off?

Edit: in case it got lost in translation, awesome shot!

I agree with that beats the hell out of all the charts I've seen. I think it should settle the focus
issue.

I vote that this image belongs in the "best of" gallery. Without a doubt! Bravo! Still wondering how the hell you managed this... :P
