Living on 70 degrees north have its challenges but when the temperatures climbs above +30C, outdoor swimming is mandatory. The 40mm paired with 6D is a fantastic light setup :

I agree the 6D and 40mm is a great combo. I shot a few images at the SPOCOM show in Anaheim, CA yesterday.

I just got a 6D and 40mm today. I thought I'd post this question here amongst it's users.

I dimly remember on release there was an issue with the 40mm. It was something about pushing in the focus element when putting a lens cap on, it could cause a problem.

I thought there was a firmware update that addressed this. Just wondering if anyone knows if this would be a problem on 40mm's today?

I have an early one that once in a while will not focus if the front is pushed in while mounting the lens cap or similar. Momentarily rotating the lens on the mount breaking the contact with the camera is the work around. Any shipped after the first month or 2 of production should be fine, If for some unlikely reason you receive one from an early batch, lens firmware should be updatable through the 6D. I would not worry about it.

Awesome thanks for the info and the work around. Mine was new today so I trust it should be OK.

It'll get it's first real work out at an engagement party this weekend.
