I'm totally sold on the 40mm.

I tried my friend's one and I'm totally sold on the 40mm.
Great with 5D3. I don't need M.

I can't believe they went with a new mount for the EOS-M. I thought for sure that this lens came out because they were ready to release this camera. Now that I know you have to use an adapter with this set up, I am sitting here scratching my head.

Who know, I may eventually get the 40mm. For now, I'll stick with the 50mm f1.4 on my 7D. The size difference is not that important to me.

Well the 40 is still a very small lens. It's still going to be less bulky on the new Canon than any other lens. Shame it needs an adapter though.

But as have already been covered several times in this thread - they do not want a mirrorless camera with EF or EF-S mount. Why make a camera mirrorless if they have to make it as big as a camera with a mirror?

If you take a magnifying glass and let the sun shine through it, you have to hold it a fixed distance from a paper if you want to start a fire. Same with a lens - it's designed for use a fixed distance from the camera sensor. And the camera sensor in a DSLR is quite a far distance inside the camera body. Further in than the mirrorless bodies are thick...

Ok... So after waiting to see what Canon was going to do on the mirrorless front I'm thinking of picking up the shorty 40 and putting on a 7D/5D mk III as a carry-around kit. Anyone have any suggestions on a small, simple, cheap case or other form of protection I can put such a rig into to protect it while in a bag/backpack, yet keep it somewhat accessible?

There's an interesting idea.
However, maybe I should have been more specific: Does anyone have any suggestions for a small, simple, cheap case or other form of protection, which doesn't tip everyone off to my raging alcoholism? ;)

Just got my 40 two days ago. I love it. I sold my 50mm 1.8 as I prefer the extra 10mm on a crop. Traveling to San Fran and napa this week, expecting the 40 to be my most used lens.

I wanted a walk-around bag for 40D/40mm and ran into this at *almart for $20.

Fits great with 40/40 grip side up for easy access. However, if want to use with bigger zoom, 40D too bulky to fit lens down (would be great with rebel body though).

Thanks, this looks like a good one at a good value.

I always have a bag with me, whether commuting or traveling for work, so I was thinking something along the line of a sleeve, or one of those small cases which are designed for point-and-shoots. I'm not surprised if there aren't any, as the 5d/7d wasn't really designed for such a duty, but the 40mm makes this scenario feasible.

-Not to take over the thread or anything :oops:

I promise to post something relevant when I get my hands on a pancake.

Just picked it up @ Samy's. Even a gripped 5dIII fits nicely in a messenger bag.

If anyone wants to try this out for a week I found one here (external link) for $25 for the week... with insurance.
