THIS ul­tra-slim pan­cake prime is one of the least ex­pen­sive lenses on the mar­ket, and mea­sur­ing just 22.8mm thick, it’s one that can eas­ily be car­ried around all day with­out any in­con­ve­nience. It’s a mar­vel­lous lit­tle op­tic for travel and street pho­tog­ra­phy, pro­vid­ing a 38mm equiv­a­lent an­gle of view on the Canon APS- C DSLRs for which it’s made. The lens does ex­hibit vignetting at wide aper­tures, as well as dis­tor­tion, but both are eas­ily reme­died in soft­ware. Most im­por­tantly, the lens fo­cuses ac­cu­rately and gives con­sis­tently sharp, de­tailed im­ages. With its bar­gain price, carry- ev­ery­where size and highly com­pe­tent imag­ing per­for­mance, this lens de­serves to be high on the wish list of many a Canon APS- C DSLR user.

If you like to travel light and space is at a pre­mium, try this pan­cake prime
