It looks like a body/desiccant cap.  ;)

I'm getting mine today and yes i too am using it primarily as a body cap....at least it's a functioning body cap when i need it fast and not have to struggle with changing lenses.

I literally picked it up on the way to a wedding in Cambridge. I might have something to say on it tomorrow.

Nice lens though, I'd like to see an 80mm macro 2.8 too.

I'm no longer considering mirrorless now that my 5D3 will fit into a jacket pocket.

Ditto. A functional lens cap that turns the 5DIII into something significantly better than the Leica X2 / Fuji X100? And for $200?

I can't wait for mine to arrive from B&H!

Cheers,

I guess this body cap will not cost "light leak". Now I know why Canon releases 40mm pankcake  ;D ;D ;D

Can you confirm that it focuses 10cm from the subject?  The specs say 30cm.

30 cm/300 mm is from focal plane. Let's crunch some numbers:
Code: [Select]
EF Flange-back distance: 44 mm
Lens length            : 27 mm
Total                  : 71 mm
Take 71 mm from 300 mm and you have 229 mm/~23 cm (approx.) from the end of the lens.
Not too close to 10 cm, but who brings ruler on a photo outing anyway?  ;D
Trusty 20D, a lighter 200, a nifty fifty, and an old Sigma that won't work stopped down.

Does anyone by any chance have used both the Canon and Voigtlander 40 pancakes?

I own the latter, and I'm interested to know if it's worth the money. I still think the 50/1.8 is a better option if I needed something cheap and handy.
