I haven't used the 40mm, i have the 35mm and 50mm and the 50mm has become one of my favourites for shooting landscapes at ~f4. The sharpness is excellent and i like the bit of "compression" that you get vs the 35mm. I find the way it renders the background with a slight bit of blur appears "normal" to me instead of scenes with a very deep dof.

Having a difficult time choosing- don't expect to do much portrait but really enjoy intended blurry backgrounds for lanscapes, ocean beach etc. Thanks in advance!
