Photographer and reviewer Dustin Abbott posted a comprehensive video review (12 minutes) about one of Canon’s newer pancake lenses for APS-C DSLRs, the EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM. You can also check a gallery of sample pictures here. The EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM was tested on a Canon EOS 80D (see DPReview’s impression here). The EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM delivers a lot of bang for the bucks, selling at $149.

Says Dustin Abbott:

Canon’s little EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM is an incredible little weapon for your APS-C (crop sensor) arsenal.  It is less than inch long but is one of Canon’s sharpest EF-S lenses (second only to the excellent EF-S 60mm f/2.8 1:1 Macro lens).  Highly portable, fast and accurately focusing, and with a reasonable price tag.  This lens is pretty much a no-brainer if you are a Canon crop sensor shooter. Read the review…
