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!

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.

+1, Good choice to add the letterboxing, it looks like a screenshot from a movie.

Most compact, lightest and cheapest modern prime lens with L-like image quality....

What is there to dislike other than it isn't a f/2.0.

I visited Japan for the Cherry Blossom Festival... I really wish I could work/study/live there.
