We spent 23 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top picks for this wiki. There are a lot of photographic situations that call for as small a footprint as possible, and there isn't a lot you can do to reduce the size of your camera body. Fortunately, thanks to these pancake lenses, Canon shooters can minimize the amount of space their rig takes up without necessarily sacrificing much image quality. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best pancake lens for canon on Amazon.

Daniel Imperiale holds a bachelor’s degree in writing, and proudly fled his graduate program in poetry to pursue a quiet life at a remote Alaskan fishery. After returning to the contiguous states, he took up a position as an editor and photographer of the prestigious geek culture magazine “Unwinnable” before turning his attention to the field of health and wellness. In recent years, he has worked extensively in film and music production, making him something of a know-it-all when it comes to camera equipment, musical instruments, recording devices, and other audio-visual hardware. Daniel’s recent obsessions include horology (making him a pro when it comes to all things timekeeping) and Uranium mining and enrichment (which hasn’t proven useful just yet).
