Still loving this lens. It's probably not quite as good as the 50 1.4 across the frame at mid apertures, but I love the bokeh at 2.8
Nice shots. Do you actually do panoramics with the 40mm pancake? I've noticed what almost looks like a touch of mustache distortion in mine. Seems like that would be a nightmare for stitching.
We certainly do produce panoramics with the 40mm pancake; in fact that's what we bought them for. The 35L has gone the way of ebay. From what I can ascertain the 40 has virtually zero distortion, and a short nodal point, that's why it's our favourite lens for this job at the moment. I haven't come across any reviews that show the slightest 'mustache' distortion, even in Mexico.
Here's the latest shot we've done using the 40mm; it's the Lighthouse at Flamborough Head on the North East Coast of England. Got really lucky, arrived before dawn, thought it was going to be a wash out. Set up, then resorted to a pipe and coffee, before the sun broke through a clear horizon. Then it's a monumental panic to get all the frames and brackets off before the magic's gone.
I learned long ago, never to wrestle with a pig. You get dirty, and besides, the pig likes it, so ... stop feeding the troll
