The lighting was just natural light coming from a nearby window by the looks of the reflection in her eyes....

QUOTED IMAGE

That's what I thought too but wondering if a flash was used or not and also what body?

Anyone compared the 40 to the new sigma 35?

But you are comparing a $150 lens to a $900 lens.

I love this lens! I've had & sold quite a few different wide angles but this hands down is a keeper! The only edit done was my bw on a SOOC image.

Wow! Can you share the settings and lighting you used?

Thanks

Thanks for the comment. It was taken on my 5DII. I used only natural light and a bit of PP. I didn't use flash or reflectors.

Is it me or is this lens sharper than the Sigma 35mm in mid frame to corner sharpness at f2.8 surely not.

A pic taken today, f2.8 and converted to B&W in Lightroom.

Is there any reason why anyone with a 24-70 L f2.8 would use this lens?

Yes. Size and weight! :D

The 24-70 weighs in at a hefty 2lbs (which is why it's called the brick) while the pancake barely approaches the 5oz mark.

It's a world of difference when you're shooting handheld for extended periods of time, as well as when weight-sensitive travel (i.e airlines) is involved. Not to mention the resulting neck, shoulder and/or back pain when you have gear hanging on your person.

Can't think of any other EF lens that'd fit in my pocket... maybe unless you're wearing baggy jeans with cargo pockets :lol:

Personally, if I owned the 24-70 (again) I wouldn't buy the 40mm but that's still a complement to the 40mm - I think it's as good optically as the 24-70 but if you can live with the weight of the 24-70 I see no reason to buy the 40mm.

Don't get me wrong though - the 40mm is an awesome lens.

The focusing on the 24-70 is better than the 40mm as well.

I can get my 40mm STM in my jeans pocket because I use a home-made "Slim" rear cap.
