Thanks Michael.....with my resulting cold wet feet, it made it worth the effort.

Went back today to my favorite old time cemetery under slightly different lighting conditions -- veiled sunlight, instead of drizzly overcast. I wanted to redo a few shots, and that effort expanded to a few others.

Okay, I am happier.

It is a fun lens, and it does look cool, especially after some PP get the center to match the edges. I avoided using the lens profile in LR, so the vignetting and distortion is more like it comes OOC.

All shots at 1Ds3, ISO 100, f/2.8, 3.2, 3.5, 4.5, or 5.6. In other words, everything from 2.8 to 5.6.

Yes, that one is seriously sweet. I need to pick this lens up for my 6D. Nice work in this thread folks.

First image: JPG straight out of the box: 100@ 9 Partial metering

Second Image 1600 @ 5.6 Evaluative Metering

Both T2i

Memo to Doubters and Critics: the key to this lens is metering

Indoors, I notice this lens seems to saturate the colors more so than other primes.

I love the colors on this one. Just stunning. Seriously considering this little guy, and you are all making a compelling case!

unclechuck, thank you for the note on metering.

I am going to post some images, so don't kill me for posting a question here, but I thought what better place to ask a question about 40/2.8 than on a thread where everyone has one.

I just received mine in the mail. When I mount it on my 7D, the lens mount fits VERY tight. It's a way tighter fit than any lens I have ever owned or used. Every other lens I have ever used, when attaching to camera, I turn it to snap it into place and it slides smoothly into place and then once in place is firm with no wiggling. This lens completely different, I begin to twist it into place and it feels so tight that I actually have to use more force than I am comfortable with - it does not twist into place smoothly at all!!

has anyone else had this problem?

I've noticed mine is a nice, snug fit. Never thought about it until now but I believe it is tighter than my other lenses. I don't know if it is as tight as you are describing though.

Posted these on the "Canon Winter Photography" thread without mentioning the lens. All on 1.6 crop, all @ F5.6:

Shot a few more composite/panos today with the 5D2. All hand held at ISO 160 and f/8.

The first is 6 shots, vertical.

The second is 2 shots, horizontal.

The last is 8 shots, vertical.

This is such a great little vacation lens! And, according to FoCal, the second sharpest lens in my bag ahead of some L glass and my 50mm macro...

Here are some Jeepneys waiting at the ferry landing in Sabang... They always make me smile - like a Pixar film - I can just imagine them talking...

Another thing to like - this lens is so small and unobtrusive - grabbing a quick shot like this does not arouse attention...

The fisherman displays his catch for the day and locals begin to gather and decide about dinner options...

Poff, those buses are outrageous. Love em.
This lens has married my 5DC, they are so compatible.

I love this lens for landscapes. The focal length seems to hit a sweet spot between the wide and tele end for me. I use it with my 5DIII and 7D and am always amazed by the details in the corners when stopped down. The 40mm pancake is a rare bargain in a sea of very expensive gear!

It hits a sweet spot because it is just shy of the sensor size dead normal FL (43mm). I love it as well-removed any desire for adapting a 45mm F 2.8 Nikkor, or getting a CV 40mm F 2.0 (lot cheaper as well)
