Two-spot red snapper (Lutjanus bohar) by alabang, on Flickr

This Two-spot red snapper, Lutjanus bohar (local name "Maya-maya") is a regular catch at the Tacloban Fish Shed. I was told that this snapper is estimated to be about 5kg and that in bulk price it sells for $2.27/lbs.

If I had a proper kitchen to work in I would've bought this fish outright and make lunch!

The 40 has been back in action again. Decided I don't like the lack of distance scale and the fact the hood ( large in my case) screws onto the moving barrel, but at the price who can complain ?

I have started to explore a bit with street photography this summer. Like the shorty forty a lot for that and because of its size its no effort to carry your camera along. On some occasions it's slightly narrow for street, so will be looking at a 35mm soon (likely the f2 IS).

I really enjoy this little lens on my 6D, and I hope Canon produces some more pancake lenses in the same price range.
