The 40mm field of view has grown on me while shooting with the GF50mm. It sits nicely between 35 (great but sometimes justr a tad too wide) and 50 (classic, but just a little too tight for my brain). So, I went out and bought the 27mm mkii.

The original XF 27mm is probably the only lens I've ever regretted selling. I'll definitely pick another one up or the new version eventually. I agree, it's an awesome focal length. I recently got the Pergear 25mm too and it's pretty awesome for how cheap it is, I like it better than the 7artisans which I adored before it (unfortunately it fell apart after a couple of years though, hopefully the pergear will last longer).
