Lenses / Re: Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 Pancake
« on: June 26, 2012, 09:24:23 PM »
  The 50 1.4 looked to be the way to go, but this at a cheaper price and similar build might be better for me.  The tiny size means I'd be able to put a body with lens into my work bag or even the handle bar bag on my bicycle. 

I have had the 40mm now for about 3 days, really fun little lens but at 2.8 the 50 f/1.4 beats it pretty solidly, 50 f/1.4 also has nicer contrast.  That all said I think I will keep it around, it makes my 5DM3 nicely portable and the quality certainly isn't bad, just doesn't hold up that well against the 50 f/1.4 which isn't THAT much bigger but is almost 2x the price. 

I have a few photos of it on my camera and I hope to rent a T4i in the next week or so and test the full time AF with STM - for those folks who are buying the T4i I think it is a no-brainer.

I don't want to hijack this thread but do folks think the new pricing on the 70-200 is here to stay or will it likely be rising in the near future.  Love to hear your thoughts.

I too have used both most recently for video work and the rate of focus in good light between the 5DM2 and the 7D is VERY noticeable.  I often use the Quick Focus setting to setup my video shot with live view on.  Quick Focus is where it flips the mirror down, focuses and flips it back up to give you back live view.  In Good light with the 7D this is a very quick process - It grabs the focus almost instantly and you are back to live view.   On the 5DM2 it hunts, I found that I need to be more careful and give it a bit more of a contrasty spot to let it get focus.    On both cameras I was using the same copy of the 24-70.  In lower light it is a bit less noticeable but I VERY rarely feel like the 5DM2 grabs focus as quickly as the 7D.
