Lens Choice: 40mm f/2.8 STM vs 50mm f/1.8 II
Jun 29, 2014

I have a 60D body and shoot mostly landscapes. My two primary lenses are the EF-S 17-55mm IS and the 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II.  After the 70-200, I'm on a very limited budget, but I want to start experimenting with macro.  I already have some macro rings and just need a prime to go along with them.

I'm aware of the nifty fifty's plastic mount.  What are the other pros and cons of the 40mm STM and the 50mm?  What else would make it worth it to spend the extra $40.00 on the 40mm?
