This fast design affords increased control over depth of field for working with selective focus techniques, and also suits shooting in difficult lighting conditions.

Normal-length prime is designed for APS-C-format Canon EF-M-mount mirrorless cameras and provides a 51.2mm equivalent focal length.
Bright f/1.4 maximum aperture excels in low-light conditions and also affords greater control over depth of field for isolating subject matter using selective focus.
One aspherical element reduces distortion and spherical aberration for improved sharpness and accurate rendering.
Super Spectra coating has been applied to minimize lens flare and ghosting for greater contrast and color fidelity when working in strong lighting conditions.
Gear-type STM stepping motor offers fast, quiet, smooth, and accurate autofocus performance that is ideal for video recording as well as still shooting.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.

Canon EF-M 32mm f/1.4 STM Reviews

I love this lens!

This 50mm equivalent prime lens is SUCH a huge improvement from the 15-45mm kit lens.

Great Length, excellent sharpness

This lens is a great length coming in at 51mm FF. Basically, a nifty 50 and the f1.4 is perfect for bokeh and low light situations. This is also one hell of a sharp lens. I took it to the local art walk and grabbed some crisp photos.

Outstanding

The EF-M 32mm f/1.4 is an outstanding professional 50mm equivalent prime lens in all aspects. It kills from wide open to f/11. Stopping down to f/1.6 improves light fall-off. Minimal distortion, edge to edge sharp, no focus shift, and excellent bokeh on close focus nature shots. Ideal uses are landscape/nature, general, street, and portrait. Finally a serious prime lens for APS-C!

A really nice lens to use.

This lens is a slight bit bigger than I expected, but so far has performed excellently. I really appreciate B&H's fine attention to my order. I received the lens quicker than I expected.

Very sharp. Color is very true. Way better than the zoom (15-45mm) kit lens

A little soft at widest apertures, but surprisingly versatile and sharp at f2.8. This is a perfect lens combo for my M6ii.

Can the auto-focus range be set on this. I want to use it for streaming but if I step out of frame I don't want it grabbing focus on the wall behind me.?
Asked by: Jonny
You can switch the minimum distance between the full range which is about 9 inches to 1.64 feet. Bryan Carnathan did an excellent review of this lens. You could also set the lens to manual focus in the camera menu.

Can this fit a canon dslr, specifically 90d?
Asked by: Dana
NO, this lens should not mount on a 90D. This is an M-mount lens designed specifically for the Canon mirrorless bodies. While the is an adapter to mount EF and EF-S lens to the mirrorless bodies, I don't believe that one exists to mount M lenses on an EF body like the 90D.
