Is the 16mm pancake kit lens of any use?
Nov 28, 2011

I can see that it is slightly wider, but it has no optical image stabilization and is not very useful in my opinion over the 18-55 kit lens. The kit lens gives me OSS and does a great job with bokeh already and the video is good. I could have saved some money buy going only for the 18-55 kit.

I have already invested in 2 canon FD lenses (50mm 1.4 and 24mm 2.8) and a super tak (50mm 1.4) from ebay, I will be getting those soon.

Would I ever need to use this lens and for what purpose would this be of use to me?

Noob here btw.
