New DLO + DPP + 40mm STM + 5DMKII/III is pixel peeping great!
Oct 11, 2012

The 40mm STM 2.8 pancake is already a sharp sharp prime out of the box that is real cheap.  I was not expecting much improvement at *all* with DLO because I remember using DLO on a 17-55 2.8 which was also rather sharp and not being wholly impressed.  However for whatever reason DLO truly does a number on the 40mm STM 2.8 making this thing the best bang for the buck walkaround *ever*.  Will post some 100% crop comparisons between a LR4 lens profiled and CA corrected shot vs Canon DPP + DLO soon.  I'm still experimenting and absolutely loving what I see.  I feel I'm seeing the *most* improvement yet with this 40mm STM (I haven't tried much other DLO lens except 17-40L and 17-55).  I think the reason for such a substantial improvement is that copies of 40mm STM 2.8's are so optically consistent that they can really profile this lens to extremely tight tolerances.

The future of Canon I think is still extremely bright with Canon's R&D and work in lens profiling and tighter optical tolerances of new and upcoming lenses.
