The 40/2.8 sure was tempting, but I think on FF I will stick with my 35/50 lightweight walkabout combo. I'd mostly rely on the 35/2 which is quicker, wider, closer for macro and not much heavier. If I had a crop body, there's not much chance I'd consider the 40, since the 64mm is not a range I care much about. Now if Canon came out with a pancake 20/2.8, I think it would fun & wonderful for crop & FF!
