I returned home from my weekend road trip to find my new Canon 40mm pancake lens had arrived!
This lens excited me when it was announced because I love pancake prime lens and how little they are. I'm also planning ahead to when Canon finally catches up and releases a mirror less 4/3rds camera sometime this year (all rumor at this point). This lens will be perfect for that kind of camera and was the main reason for buying it.
Personally I love shooting with a prime lens and the challenges they give you. Plus, I can't wait to throw it on when I film the next Passion Hit TV to see how it performs there.
