Picked this little guy up yesterday - i love the focal length, and it's so fantastically sharp wide open!  I did do the autofocus adjustment, it was a tad back-focused, but now it's just perfect and the only problems left are my own :)

Here are some images from today.

First images and review of 40mm pancake...

Together with my 5D2 I think the 40mm pancake can be a great walkabout lens...I have also found a solution to the 'inadequate' lens hood for the 40mm. For more images and my review please follow this link...http://www.ivanmuller.co.za/blog

The lightweight makes it ideal as a walkabout to catch those extras

While this lens is F2.8 and not F1.4, the out of focus quality could be similar since all the canon 50's are min 1.5 ft to subject, whereas this lens is min 1ft. Dof for closer objects or subjects makes it similar to the larger aperture non L 50's. Anyway I haven't gone around for fun or used it in a professional setting yet but let me say, this is one impressive little piece of glass! I can't believe it was only $150! The only time I plan to go for a smaller than F2.8 aperture would be with macro shots. I think i will like the artsy vignetting at F2.8. Focus is so incredibly accurate too! I'm not used to hearing the lens too much on my L's so it was weird to hear this lens but it is much quieter than the 50 F1.8, but then most lenses are. :D

I bought the shorty-40 last night. After owning a Rebel XT for 7 years, this is my first "real" lens and my question will betray my complete lack of photographic ability, but what the heck...

I'm seeing a lot more moire than I ever noticed with the kit lens. This shot above at f2.8 is actually the best of the lot, the worst seems to be at f10. Is this poor technique on my part or is it a limitation of the camera?

Don't take my advice. Don't even take my advice not to take my advice.
