  • Hombre's House of Pancake: the 40mm f/2.8 STM

    Here's why I love shooting with prime lenses, Fantastic contrast and sharpness. These were taken at Plaza Singapura with the Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM pancake lens, all wide open and no PP.

    Here's the jockey mounted on the steed. The lens is so stubby and light that the camera stands balanced unsupported.

        you have a compact lens and then you add a bulky grip. is it even needed? i find that my battery can last over a thousand shots as it is already

          You're right about the great battery life (though lens IS will sap a good amount if you are not careful) with one battery. With two, it is stupendous. But the grip has another, arguably more important purpose: to allow easy control over the shutter, exposure comp, focus point and exposure lock when shooting in portrait mode. The grip has the same buttons that your right hand can access when holding the camera in landscape mode. As one who shoots portraits, you should look into it. No arm over your head contorsions or elbow out in the air when shooting portrait. Plus I like the look of the rig with the grip.

              At under $200, this lens is probably the best value in the Canon EOS lens line-up. It really is constrasty and sharp beyond one's expectations of a lens at this price. Similar findings at LensRentals.


              [SIZE=1]EF 16-35L Mark I at f/2.8[/SIZE]

              I have not experienced the lens-goes-to-sleep focus problem.

              Now we need an L pancake; all metal construction, top-notch coatings, weathersealing, ring USM and f/2

                              Wow! These are great! All the gear in the world won't help if the photographer doesn't have a good eye. Well done.

                              Particularly liked the chickens. Ayam what ayam and that's all that ayam.
