Hi,

this is just out of personal curiosity, but I have been wondering whether some of you out there are going to buy the 40 mm specifically for use on DX.
For me 40 mm is a weird focal length on DX (it's 60 mm FF equivalent) and it feels too narrow for most of the photography I do. It's also kinda wide for portraits, so to me this is kind of a no man's land.
What are your thoughts? Do you shoot this FL often on DX?

No, I used to have a 50mm f1.8 which I used on a Sony Nex 7. For me, not long enough to be a useful portrait lens and not wide enough for general use. Now if I used full frame it could be an interesting focal length but not on an aps-c body. YMMV of course.
