p.5 #1 · The 40mm/2.8 Image Thread


Got this lens yersterday and I'm impressed.
Took a few pics to compare it to my Tamron 28-75 2.8 zoom.
The 40mm is a bit sharper, has better contrast and bokeh, and is sharp from corner to corner unlike the zoom.
All pics are unsharpened RAW pics straight from camera, xcept the last one which has a bit of sharpening.

test pics:

I only had mine for about a month or two. I was very impressed, but I have a 17-55 f2.8. The 40mm was great, but I decided the value would be better placed in a tele zoom. One day I hope to have it in my kit, again.

This little lens works great for macro shots too. Canon 6D with extension tube:

I've been pleasantly surprised by the overall quality of the lens. It almost makes full frame into a compact

Good colors too, which surprised me.

No doubt, a great portrait, Peter.
The model is also very nice looking too.

Thanks Peter!
But yeah, between Canon and the subject, I'd have to drastically f-up to make those legs look anything less than scrumptious, eh?

Although I am very recent Canon user, this is my favourite Canon lens!

All from a recent trip to Ethiopia (cross post from 6D thread)





Thanks for looking!
