just chatting it up here - I did a shoot a week ago and in a shot of two people and a pooch posing I was trying to get the background blurred at around f/3.5 or so but nope.

Guess I needed to find a background further away behind them. I'd hoped it was already far back enough...

Anyone have examples of a two person portrait with bokeh? Cheers ~

The closer you are to the subject; the more bokeh also; It's not an idea fstop or focal length for portraits imo (maybe face/upper body if you keep them in center of frame to minimize the distortion..)

I's not a firmware update but if you install the latest version of Canon Utilities, you can add the 40mm 2.8 to the list of lenses with peripheral illumination correction on your 5D Mk II.

Thanks Mike. You mean that the correction is applied only on post processing ?

I believe the camera has a database of corrections in it; and will perform those that it knows about (He's talking about letting the camera auto-correct the issue basically)

Yes, with RAW, but it is done automatically in the camera with jpeg's. (also with the 7D in-camera Raw processing)

Mike, I know this but the 5D2 might need an update to recognize the new 40mm not in it's lens database ?? So what about all new lenses from Canon !?!

Edit : w0m said it for me !!

The way you update the camera is to connect to Canon Utility, and add any new lenses that Canon has added. When they add a new lenses they also have to update the version of Canon Utilities.

It must be a new fad.... My 35F2 is wider and faster and very sharp. No need for a pancake. Now if I had a tiny body to put it on it would make more sense.

You know come to think of it, this lens would make a great addition to my neglected Rebel XS (1000D)! That would, imho, be an awesome combination of size + portability for street other than the fact that high ISO shots are out of the question. I must say this thread isn't helping my quest to get new gear while staying in budget :lol: :D

I probably wouldn't bother on the 5Dc, but it's a great fit for my T3i. I can carry it mounted to the T3i in a coat pocket, which is a nice option.

Funny you would think of that way as I'm in the opposite camp. Taking it off my 7D and trying it on my 5D and 6D is what really woke the lens up for me. Much better color and I had better luck getting focus with the two full frames than I did on my crop. Everyone's results are different though; all in all it's a subject of personal preference ;)

ah, yeah. I see where you're coming from. I wasn't so much commenting on image quality as the size/portability. That was one of the main reasons I purchased it. The 5D is a little too big to stuff in the pockets of my winter coats, but the T3i sneaks in there with the pancake. That means I'll carry it more frequently, which was my goal.

Once the weather warms up, I'll probably use it on the 5D and not want to put it back on the cropper ;)

Picked up this lens a couple of days ago, liking it so far but somehow didn't get this one focused right... hmm :(
