Good Day! Could you, please inform, whether this is a good idea to use Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM for allround usage? I mean to use it on a regular basis. Is it a good idea?

Yes. I use it as a standard walk-around lens on either an 80D or a 7D2. Very small and light, very good images even wide open and especially good by f/5.6.


7D2 | 80D | Fuji X-H1 | 100-400 f/4-5.6 IIL | 300 f/4 L | 70-200 f/2.8 IIL | 135 f/2 L | 85 f/1.8 | 100 f/2 | 60 f/2.8 macro | nifty-fifty | 10-22 f/3.5-4.5 | Tamron 150-600 | Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 | Sigma 30 f/1.4

I purchased one a few months ago and use it often as a general purpose lens, mostly on a T3i for family shots and general walk around.

My EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM is pretty much glued to an old 550D body as a walk-around for landscapes and cityscapes.

It all depends on what you're photographing, but I find on a crop sensor 50mm is too long and even the 40mm (which is also a fantastic little lens) can leave me needing just a little more in frame.

I can fit the whole bundle into a large coat pocket - has to be one of the most compact DSLR set-ups possible.

And the EF-S 24mm gets even better when I fit it to my 7dii.
