information from Canon

A highly portable pancake lens that's ideal for travel and street photography. Its advanced optical design ensures great image quality, while a large f2.8 maximum aperture allows hand-held low-light shooting. STM focusing delivers smooth, near-silent AF when capturing movies.

• Super-slim, pancake design
• Natural, human-eye perspective
• Smooth, quiet focusing when shooting movies (with compatible EOS cameras)
• Use large apertures to shoot in low light
• Close focus to 0.16m

Portable pancake design

At just 22.8 mm deep and weighing just 125g the EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM is a highly portable lens that lets you take your EOS anywhere. Its diminutive design makes it discreet too – ideal for street photography.

Natural perspective

The 24mm focal length when used on an APS-C EOS body gives the same field-of-view as a 38mm lens on a full-frame single-lens reflex camera. That's close to that of the human eye, so your pictures will have a natural look and feel about them.

Smooth, quite focusing

Near-silent STM (stepper motor) focusing locks on quickly when shooting still photos and provides smooth focus transitions when capturing movies, for footage that's free from distracting focusing noise (when used with compatible EOS bodies).

Wide aperture for low-light shooting

A fast maximum aperture of f2.8 lets in lots of light, letting you shoot in dark conditions without using flash. It's ideal for creating shallow depth-of-field effects too, letting you isolate your subject against a soft, out-of-focus background.

Advanced optical design

Enjoy razor-sharp performance right across the frame, with high resistance to flare and coloured fringing. Get as near as 16cm to small subjects for a close-up view of the world.
