  1. +Nicole S. Young got hers right before we left for Nebraska. I really like how fluid the focus ring is. And yeah, I'm very impressed with the sharpness and the macro operating distance. For $200, I think I may add it to my arsenal, too.

  2. +Kelly-Shane Fuller I have both, used the 40mm all day today and so far I love it. It's small enough that I don't need to remove it from my camera when I put it away, and it's a macro so it will likely focus much closer than the 50mm. I'll have a more solid opinion in a few weeks after using it while visiting my family, but my initial expectation is that I could easily replace my 50mm f/1.4 with the 40mm.

  3. Thanks +Nicole S. Young, thats what I want to hear. I often take my 1DsMk2 with me when I'm out and about, and even with my shoulder strap my 50mm F/1.4 (before I broke it…) and my current walkabout 17-40mm F/4L stick out quite a bit. The idea of the 40mm pancake on the body tucked under my coat seems like it'd work really well.
