Ready to ship
B&H has met the preorder demand and is shipping the new Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM.

I’m eager to find out how much we raised for the Big Life Foundation, we should know soon.

The $199 charge from B&H has already hit my online banking, though no news yet from them directly....

Roger at LensRentals says the 40 is surprisingly excellent in his testing!

Damn! This thing is at 200$, which today would mean 159€ (1$=1.2549€). But nooooo, in France I can only if find for 239-270€. WTF ?

$199 = £229 UK

Can't be bothered working out the difference after tax, too depressing

I bought one as I felt it was worth it. In the UK you pay the UK price and that is the price that I judged it on.

I suspect this will be a classic lens, especially on a 1.6 crop
