| p.1 #11 · If Nikon made a 40mm pancake would there be interest? |
I have the Canon 40mm pancake. I'm not too impressed by it, but that may be because I only have an APS-C Canon camera. If it were full frame, I might think differently. Still, even the form factor... it doesn't make the camera any particularly lighter or less bulky in a noticeable way for me. It still requires a neck sling or camera bag, and it does not not (obviously) make the camera pocketable. My point is: you still handle it the same way.
If it were an f/2 prime, and a bit wider (or if I were on FF), I might use it.
But Canon's rendition is a bit *too* cheap. AF is slow, noisy, etc.
I'd pay more ($200-400?) for something better.
I prefer the Nikon 35 f/1.8 on DX over the 40 f/2.8 on Canon... on APS-C. The 35 f/1.8 is just small enough, and just fast enough. Yeah the chroma is crazy sometimes, but that's not a show stopper.
