Just curious since I see you shoot w/Nikon, did you switch from Canon? And if so, what drew you to the Nikon?
This 40mm is part of the reason I upgraded from a 50d to the 5D II. It was an interesting FOV on a 1.6x body, but this lens seems to perform very well on full-frame.
Thanks for the compliment! Yep I made the switch from Canon to Nikon. I had a 5d classic when I made the jump. It's hard for me to put a reason on why I switched actually. I came across a great deal on a D700 with a grip and just started to feel that "itch", so I sold all of my Canon stuff and made the switch. One year later I'm still pleased with my purchase, but knowing what I know now I probably wouldn't do it over again. I DO really like the fact that I can use the full line of Ai-s lenses in aperture priority mode with full 3d metering. As far as the 40mm goes, I'm really pleased with it. It's very low key and doesn't draw any attention, and the image quality is pretty great for the price and simplicity.
