andymuns: it is not the same sensor the original was not video capable.

No, it is not. The sensor must be able to support a fast readout which most CCD sensor are not able to.

Michael Ma: Such great technology wasted on a Windows phone and Nokia branded devices. Put it on the iPhone or Galaxy device. It's like finding a cure for aging, but adding in the clause that you have to go through a gender change operation if you want to use it.

For most people, it's not worth the switch.

Excuse me, but this is plain BS. Windows Phone does a good job and is on the same level as all the others. You can of course have your own opinion, but you are so way off that I would recommend you keep it for your self. For your own sake.

boulderdashcci: Wish the pancake was more like 17 or 20mm (I think there's a Voigtlander 20mm pancake, but it's manual focus only).....I could see something like that staying on my camera quite often. Still interesting stuff here.

Pentax have two 40mm and one 21mm which all are smaller than this Canon lens. I think 40mm is a very good focal length on aps-c, too. I use my 40mm a lot and find it very useful.
