Hearing this alot right now. People saying the 40 2.8 is an amazing lens and convincing themselves it is but really if it wasnt a pancake for EF you wouldnt touch it with a barge pole.

Seems you need to justify it to your self. Same as if it wasnt a real bargain price you wouldnt touch it.

Because its cheap and small there is all this oh what a fabulous lens poo going on. did you also own the 50 1.8 and 35 2 before you bought this? If not you've obvioulsy bought it because its a new shiny toy. The afore mentioned lenses would have done the same job at 2.8 for the same price or less especially second hand but just a little bit larger.

Rant over. no offence meant
