Re: New EF 40mm f/2.8 STM has just arrived

Here's a series of test shots (all hand held and straight from the camera, resized to 1200 x 800px in DPP). I'm not a pixel peeper and this is absolutely the first time I test a lens by shooting a brick wall. I'm doing this only for those who are interested...

Manually focused at minimum distance f/5.6
