24mm Focal length
Focal Length is 24 mm which is good for wide angle photography, Landscape photography, street photography and Astrophotography. The difference will show when you compare with your kit lens which is 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 IS. Image stabilization is only thing which is not available with this lens. Also, there is variant available with IS for canon 24mm STM lens which is around 50K(not worth it). So stability is important while using this lens.
The maximum aperture available with this lens is 2.8 lens. so, you can go down to low light sensitivity and maximum shutter speed. so, this is helps to capture the details in low light and Night photography. wider aperture gives clear picture which is even better than Kit lens.
Canon’s STM Technology : Stepper Motor Technology
STM Technology is Canon’s Technology which provides the smooth and Quick Focusing on the object which is even faster than Canon EF-S 50mm F1.8. This technology also helps to record smooth videos where focusing of object is near to silent. MF and AF both works great with this lens.
Most affordable wide Angle lens
The most affordable wide angle lens which is available in market is “Canon 24mm F2.8 STM Lens“. price range is below 10K. Also, I find it good solution when upgrading from kit lens which I got with Canon EOS 700D. Now, this lens is faster than Kit lens with its F 2.8 Aperture speed. A very good lens for Landscape photography, street photography and Astro photography.
Video Recording is good with this lens due to STM Technology. So it can be best choice for youtubers and vloggers. Focusing is fast and smoother with subject.
Though it is not a macro lens, but at some specific distance it can worked like macro lens. This lens is also referred to as “pancake lens“. As they are made of such small width, that they resemble pancake.
The Slimmest and ultra-compact design is used for Canon APS-C Camera which is equivalent to 38mm on Full Frame camera.
