Thanks. This lens has been bumping my Sigma 50mm macro from my bag recently making room for an additional lens, but I don't want to lose macro, or at least 1/2 life size, when I'm walking around. I'm getting a tube to cover that, but I'd never considered using an EF lens reversed, so thanks for the tip.

I find stopping down to F4 makes it razor sharp.

All good then. I just noticed the difference from f/2.8 down to 3.2. It has certainly made my kit a lot lighter & easier to carry around. All I take now is my 15-85 & the 40mm and I'm set for pretty much anything. Love it:)

Anyone else find that the lens sharpens up quite substantially stopping down from f/2.8 to f/3.2? Or is it just my lens?

If you look at the MTF charts, sharpness peaks at around ~f/4
It's quite the difference too.

Cooool! I did't remember that the 866 could master... I knew it could slave and HSS.
Looks like my next shopping trip just got cheaper :)
Thanks for the heads up!

No problem :D

Here's a shot I took with the pancake

No problem. It's a cheap experiment whether you turn out to use it regularly or not.

Sure it takes pictures but it's a video lens, where are the videos? I'd love to see how it performs

It's amazingly sharp in video.
I don't have an example, but it's impressive

Just purchased this lens and i have to say it's really tiny! I quite like the 40mm focal length on ff and don't really mind it at all.

The lens is sharp, but I wouldn't say it's sharper than my other lenses. Can't complain as I got it for $170.

Now I'm assuming that you had to manual focus this lens and it wasn't on the t4i? looks crsip and clear but you have some serious overgrowth in your backyard :lol:
