p.3 #1 · 40/2.8 is very good


Hr,. I expressed little interest in this focal length, yet I feel the urge to purchase. Must avoid sample threads.

It's a 'fun' lens to use. Plus it completes my unholy trio.




It's not silent, I hear it. My dog definitely hears it and reacts to its electronic 'whine'.

man, just getting some of these shots on my large monitor tonight. this lens is great! sharp at 2.8, no question about it. nice contrast. yeah, it vignettes quite a bit wide open, but whatever. at $200 it's a complete no-brainer if 40mm is a focal length you're comfortable with. a pleasant surprise...

I think this would be a great lens on a T3 or T4 camera. It would be not a whole lot larger than some of the big sensor point and shoots but would have a ton more capability and would not be much different in price.

Methinks this lens is unofficially for the 5D series. 5D, no grip, light as a feather, FF. You're still confused?

Lenses designed specifically for Canon crop bodies are labeled EF-S, no?

But EF lenses are not exclusively designed for FF only.

I think I've just been convinced to buy this lens. I love 40mm FOV, For me it's the perfect compromise between distortion and FOV. My only hesitation is speed.

Sounds awesome.

I wish it was f2, but I guess it would have had to be bigger maybe.


I don;t think you can make a 40mm f/2 pancake and if you could the image quality would be poor. It is easier to make great quality if you make a lens slower.

Did you do a direct comparison?

Tell that to the companies that are already doing it. There are probably 3 or 4 available today, albeit Pentax did it for a smaller sensor.

I'm buying two and stack them to make an 80/4 (or would that make it a 5.6 )

Ok, but the 40 2.8 STM is pancake light. You get get two of them for the weight and price of an Ultron 40.

As I said before, people wishing for a 40mm f/2 from Canon, wish for another lens. You cannot say that you want "this lens" to be faster.

Mine shipped yesterday. Even though I have the 35/2, Ultron 40 and the 50/1.8, I found a place for it

I don't have the 35/2 or Ultron 40, but would like to try both. I have the 35 f/1.4 and 50's coming out my ears (dumped the L, sort of wish I still had it).

The new 40 weighs the same as the f/1.8 though it should be "slimmer".
