Nice that he likes the lens, but man, that guy's spelling and grammar are atrocious...
Too much gear, too little space.

I just picked up two used 40mm STM's for stereoscopic shooting. Yes, there are used ones out there already!

It's a great little lens.  Mounted on my 1D X, it fits in the same Lowepro S&F Utility Bag 100 AW in which I carry the body only.  My favorite use is that it goes in a pants/shorts pocket when I'm carrying the 1D X with 70-200 II on a Blackrapid strap. When I need a wider AoV, I swap lenses and just leave the 70-200 II hanging from the BR strap.
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses

Great idea!

Mine will be on the market soon enough too. I fell head first for the novelty value when it was announced, used it all the time for a fortnight and haven't used it since. Right now it's little more than a functional lens-cap. But that's just me.

It's a really decent little lens for a great price. But at this focal length I'll keep reaching for the Sigma 50 f/1.4 or the 24-104 f/4is, and soon the 24-70 f/2.8II.
