I'd like to hear from actual users of this lens.  The Photozone evaluation of the lens, makes it out to be a winner.  They give it their "Highly Recommended' rating.  I was interested in purchasing a prime lens in the 35mm to 50mm FL, making this little 40mm almost perfect.

So....what have YOU found to be it's pros and cons?  Has it exceeded any expecations?  How about disappointments?  I shoot with a Canon T2i.

Specifically, does this lens have manual focus override (while in AF)?  And is there a hood for this lens?  Is the use of a hood even recommended?

Any and all info. would be appreciated.  Thanks.

Canon EOS 550D (EOS Rebel T2i / EOS Kiss X4)
