Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM AF Problem – Product Advisory

Canon EF 40mm STM

Canon issued a product advisory for the new EF 40mm f/2.8 STM lens.  The AF may stop working when enough pressure is applied to the lens barrel while attached to a camera.

The current fix is to remove the lens and reattach it.  A firmware update should be available soon to fix the problem altogether.

I haven’t experienced this problem yet.
