23 Jul My “40mm” Point of View
Source: Fuji X Passion
In 2012, Canon announced the EF 40mm F2.8 STM. It was one of the most affordable and compact lenses in the whole EF lenses lineup. As this lens could allow my Canon 6D to be more compact and lightweight, I bought it without hesitation. I cannot say it has the best image quality that Canon can offer, but it was one of the most well-balanced between image quality and portability that I had at that point in time.
Why do I like pancake lenses?
It all started in the mid-2000s when I was sourcing information on which camera system to be my first DSLR. Then I came to know about pancake lenses offered by Pentax. I had no idea why I have this fascination with the pancake lenses, such as 21mm F3.2 AL, 40mm F2.8 Limited, and 70mm F2.4 AL.
If I am to give myself some explanations, the first reason could be probably the compactness these lenses can offer and the second reason is the engineering achievement. But after all the hypes and struggles that my inner self had, I decided to go with the majority, Canon.
That’s because I have friends who are using the same brands, and they have lenses that I did not own and vice versa. And so, I thought it would be good to share the lenses if one ever needed them. But eventually, this sharing “idea” rarely happened.
