I'm actually fine with a pancake on a DSLR. I think it will make travel even easier. If the 40mm f2.8 Pancake from Canon is cheap I'd be interested in it. I don't generally enjoy taking my DSLR on trips but I think this would help.

Of course as I'm typing this I'm wondering how much small it is than the 50 f1.4...

Typical Canon missed the boat again. The announcement was on Ash Wednesday not Shrove Tuesday ;) ;) ;)

how many pictures of birds and wildlife do you need to sell to pay off a lens like that - not even including profit?
It depends on how many unique images you can licence for $5000 :P.
Canon 5D MkIII, 7D, 300mm L IS f/2.8 and a few other L's

A small, flat, inconspicuous lens released with a bulky and far-from-inconspicuous dSLR.  Ummm...why?


Maybe this means that the Canon Mirrorless will be a Digital EOS IX. I'd buy one :) or maybe two :)  :)

For those not familiar with the APS Film EOS IX  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canon_EOS_IX

As an owner of the original, I've been advocating for a digital return of that form factor for years!

40mm pancake will mean having to hold the Dslr like a point and shoot, Yuk!

Maybe okay for people new to Dslr photography or who rarely use their's and tend to hold it that way anyway!

So whatever happened to pancake day?

My 24-70 and 70-200 are a joy to use....so much so that I've really struggled lately with the compacts I've tried - not liking the feel and response. A pancake lens would give my 5d2 an additional P&S capability and fit in my jacket! For this reason I'm excited about an EF pancake with AF.

The pancake lens fits very well with Canon's line of thinking mentioned in this article (thanks Northlight :-)

Quote
"It's not a question of whether or not you have a mirror. There is a consumer need for good-quality cameras to be made smaller," Maeda said. "We will meet this need."

He denied this would be difficult without removing the internal mirror, adding that Canon had produced very small SLR cameras in the past.

Now, certainly part of what he was talking about was the G1 X, but there's certainly more to come...

Right, my whole point about mentioning a new 50mm 1.4 at a decent price is that just about every enthusiast who owns a Canon would get one sooner or later.  At around the $500 mark, even the less enthusiastic might save up money and get one,  it could be a huge seller.

I own a 50mm f/1.4, but my impression is the 50mm f/1.8 is far more people than the f/1.4 among enthusiasts.
