19Dec Canon 40mm f2.8 STM lens on sale for $129

The Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM Lens is a decent little pancake lens and a fun one to have around. Right now it’s on sale for just $129 with free shipping on B&H which is a pretty good price for any lens. Not sure how long this sale will last so if you want one you should probably […]

The STM designation stands for Stepper motor which is a slightly […]
