Just trying out the 40mm 2.8 STM
3

Just got a 40mm Pankake lens today and have to say I'm very pleased with it. I took a few random shots around Singapore and the lens seems to be very sharp at 100%. These are heavily cropped from the original RAW files. For a $200/- lens, this seems to raise the bar in terms of value for money.

I can't say I fully comprehend the rationale behind Canon's decision to introduce a lens of this focal length when there are better 35mm lenses already in the line up but at this price, who cares?

If, like me, you get a bit tired of lugging around heavy zooms and ocassionaly just want a single, fast and ultra lightweight prime, this is a no brainer.
