40mm f2.8 STM... why not?

I'd rather put the money towards the new 35/2 IS.  Twice as fast, and 35mm is "just right" on FF.  And 56mm on APS-C is more versatile than 64mm.

But I guess if another $650 is going to break you, then the 40/2.8 is a great value.  Probably better than the 50/1.8 with its spotty AF.
