I stopped using it after getting the 35mm f2 IS

So, unless you want it to be really cheap or really tiny/light, the 35mm f2 IS is superior in all ways I can think of. I have the hood, too - the ES-52 - and yeah, not sure I need it But it seems to protect the lens a little, so I keep it mounted. It builds only a few millimeters.

That said, you cannot go wrong with the 40mm pancake

not a fair comparison with 35/f2 IS. the 35 gotta be better in IQ since it's more expensive, one-stop faster and with IS.

The advantage with the 40/2.8 is its size and guaranteed IQ.
