Comes with lens, lens and dust caps, and 1 year refurbished limited warranty.

Great lens, been waiting for a price drop. Frequently referred to as the "pancake", if you've heard that before. Normally 120 refurbished, 150 msrp.
Promotion lasts from September 21, 12:00 a.m. through September 30, 2017 11:59 p.m. ET.

From Canon:
Incredibly lightweight, the EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM is a fast and versatile lens with advanced AF and superior optics. With a 35mm equivalent focal length of 38mm, it's appropriate for a variety of purposes. The lens features optimized lens element placement and includes an aspheric element for high image quality from the center of the composition to the corners, and has specialized coatings on the lens elements to reduce ghosting and flare. To ensure excellent color balance, a 7-blade circular aperture provides superb out-of-focus detail. The EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM excels during movie shooting thanks to its STM motor that enables silent and smooth focus tracking (on EOS cameras with Movie Servo AF), plus a micro-stepping drive that keeps aperture changes quiet. The lens also offers full-time manual focus, manual AF adjustment (one-shot AF), and can focus down to a minimum distance of 0.5 ft. (0.16m). Delivering optical brilliance in a lightweight and unobtrusive construction, the EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM is a great fixed-optical length lens for photographers looking to add a travel-friendly option to their collection.

I had this 24mm "pancake" lens for my Canon Rebel T6i before I sold everything last month to go Full Frame (Canon 6D Mk II). What I loved most about this particular lens was its versatility. It's closer to our normal line of vision and sight on an APS-C camera (compared to a 50mm lens which always gave a "tight" feel due to the 1.6x crop factor). I've shot entire events [facebook.com] with this as my only lens, and it's got both incredible macro, portrait, as well as wide-angle landscape capabilities. It's also tiny, light, and low profile making it easy to carry your camera around all day.

Here are some of my shots (edited in LR) displaying the versatility of this lens:

Would honestly recommend this lens over the 50mm f/1.8 for a crop sensor Canon.

You couldn't be further from the truth with this statement. In reality, how many people, percentage wise, will actually make the jump from a crop to FF? Very low. So, with that being said, you'll always have someone who would be willing to take it off your hands for $80, and this could be years after you buy it for $100. So, $20 for 2-3 years of use seems like a good deal to me. I bought one of these 2 years ago and recently sold it for $80. Just saying...

Thanks for this. All of my lenses are pretty poor third party ones and even if this isn't one of the more higher quality lenses, I think this will get plenty of use.

is this typically used for portraits? i am looking for a macro lens which will not break the bank, and this says it can focus at 6 inches.

I think I will go for it, I shoot a lot of closeups and a lot of landscape. I already have the nifty fifty, but it only focuses down to 13 inches, this sounds much better for closeups of flowers, etc. here are some of my photos: https://500px.com/alfalfa19

PS, nice photos, by the way.

You do have also have to mention that you lose 1 1/3 stops of light using the 24mm f2.8 over the 50mm f1.8. I do agree that 50mm f1.8 isn't a great walkaround for a crop sensor camera, but it is the best value for low light and experimentation with bokeh for a new photographer.

Just wanted some advice, I have a Canon 350D, would this lens be a good fit for the camera? I would be taking photos of landscapes and portraits. TYIA.
My old lense broke, so I am looking for an "everyday" lens.

Have this lens, pretty darn decent for $100 except the AF motor is loud, and in videos, I can hear it when it adjusts.

This is an okay macro lens not a great one. However if you find a reverse lens adapter with autofocus on sale on amazon you can make an awesome macro lens out of this.

And the af is also slow, but don't let that deter you, I have this lens and the shots it produces are quite fantastic. If I would have bought this first I would not have gotten the 50mm. This is way more usable for all around shooting and fast enough for most scenes
