I was just messing around with the "new" 40 STM lens on the 1Ds3. This was the first time I'd done anything with it, other than dialing it in for MA (+1).
I'm very happy with this lens, even wide open with its light fall-off. Color and sharpness is very nice, as is edge roll-off for contrast.
My point is that if this is the direction Canon is going (and all evidence points that way), I'm likely to be very happy with the 35 IS performance, being a little wider angle with IS, and a stop faster, I think this 35 will be a winner, provided the price could come down toward $650 in a while.
The little 40 is amazing, and I paid $200 for it, and don't regret it at all.
A few of this morning's shots. The first two at f/5.0, the second two at f/2.8. Slight corrections in LR4.
