The brand new 24mm STM is now shipping for a reasonable $150. The Canon 40mm STM was a huge success. Despite being priced almost 2x as much as the crowd favorite 50mm 1.8 it is highly recommended over the Nifty Fifty. Sharper, better bokeh, and better build quality. There are no doubts that the Canon 24mm STM will be just as great. It is supposed to be sharper than the 40mm STM. The price, in my opinion, is remarkable; at $150 it might be the best bang for your buck Canon has to offer. I’ll be getting my hands on the 24mm STM shortly. Adorama, B and H Photo, and Canon are all shipping orders, with Amazon due to ship on November 24th.
