Almost all reviews and forum comments that I have read are just the opposite. I have one for my 6D and find it to be very sharp for such a cheap lens.....even wide open. I also have a 100mm macro which is very sharp to compare to. IMO the 40mm is great on a FF camera for general snapshots.......and very portable. The only drawback I see to this lens is the STM, which is quite slow compared to USM........but acceptable. I don't do video, but STM is supposed to be better for that use.
