350D or 550D with the new 40mm F/2.8
Jul 9, 2012

I'm contemplating the new 40mm lens for my rebel XT or T2i

I can get plenty of images online, but what I'm having a hard time finding is user experiences with the older bodies.

I have a 50mm F1.8, have a broken 50mm F1.4 and a 30mm F1.4 (sigma).

I'm mainly interested in focus speed/accuracy and handling/compactness versus the older fast primes and the kit lens.

Also, right now I use a holster which I occasionally attach to my belt. I'm not going to find a smaller DSLR specific holster, so any suggestions on a small bag that fits the 40mm and T2i like a glove would be great.

I'm aware of Graphikal's thread here:

Thanks!
