Re: Agree, what's the point....

I own the old Hexanon 40 f1.8 (Konica) and I can't figure out why Canon didn't go to f1.8 on the 40 lens.

1. Maybe f1.8 was impossible to keep the pancake form and/or $200 price point for FF

2. Maybe f2.8 is good enough for video? (which seems to be a focus because of STM)
