I believe it's a nice lens as well, for the price, however, I think it's a bit lacking in contrast on my 5d m3.
agreed, usually set contrast +1 or +2 and color sat +1 in DPP.

It's a useful lens for high contrast scenes then ;)

It's a useful lens.  I really like the pancake design.  I really have a lot of fun with this lens.  Hopefully Canon can make 30mm pancake lens, so I will like to buy it and use it on SL1.

I love my 40!

Same here, it's such a perfect pairing for unobtrusive general photography on my 5D.  I think it and a 6D would make a wonderful compact/stealth kit.  Canon really needs to make an equivalent lens for EF-S mount, the shorty 40's just a bit too much telephoto for my tastes on APS-C.

Felt the same with my 60D.  I like it much more on FF
