Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM "Pancake"

Sporgon

5% of gear used 95% of the time
Such a great little lens; thought I should give it another outing. It has started playing up now and again but I think that is because I got it wet in Wales.

As I like this one so much I guess i ought to get the 50 STM too given how cheap it is.

Canon 5DII + 40 pancake @ f/2.8 Ai servo as the baby just wouldn't stay still.

Skiing near Flaine, France. 6D & Canon 40mm pancake, which is the best way to cram a 6D into a ski jacket pocket.


The sky really does come out like that above 3000 meters if you position the sun correctly at the right time of day (at a 90° angle to the sky you want to shoot). Didn't use a polarizer and less than a minute of PP in LR.

Just bought this little lens today.... I will try to get some first shots out of it tomorrow, but so far it seems nice and sharp, just like all the reviews said :)

I wanted something nice and light, to go together with whatever camera I decide to buy next (something lighter than my 1D mark II... meaning nearly ANY camera.)
