Picked up the new Canon 40mm 2.8 today at Norman Camera. Very pleased with the performance, especially considering the cost. If you are looking for a small, lightweight 40mm, you would probably be pleased wtih this performer. Went outside and shot a few test shots. All are shot with a 5DM2, handheld. I'll include a few 100% zoom crops as well.
2.8 100% zoom
8.0 100% zoom
8.0 shooting into the sun - nice flair control
2.8 blur - even got a little bit of a rainbow
Canon is giving its users a very nice performing lens here, and when you consider the price, its pretty remarkable. There is noticable vignetting at 2.8, but it is much better within another stop. Lens is sharp even wide open, and only gets better from there.
