it refers to the aperture of the lens being wide open. ie this lens has a max aperture of f 2.8 if shot at 2.8 it is referred to as wide open as opposed to stopped down say o f4 or 5.6

Got it! Made me remember the days of my SLR, when the lower aperture meant that the aperture ring was completely open. Small number = largest hole = most light let in.

Canon 40mm 2.8 STM - AKA Pancake

I paid $200 for mine shortly after it was released and use the lens frequently. It's pretty amazing to think that many people have compared this lens' IQ to that of the 35 1.4 or 85 1.2.

I've all but abandoned my 24-70 2.8L in favor of the 40...I'll let my legs be the zoom.

yea it's got amazing IQ. Wide open on my XTI at 1600 at Medieval Times on Saturday it was tack sharp. I'm actually putting together my review now and I'm probably not going to retouch stuff for this. Not even for exposure
