Canon just released a new lens, a first of a kind (more or less), a “pancake” lens. Is a 40mm focal length, very compact and very sharp. Unlike the rest of the cheap prime lenses, this one is featuring a STM motor and is “fly by wire”. Very quiet, relatively fast focusing and lovely colours for only 250 SGD is quite a good deal.
Equivalent of 64mm on APSC sensors (xxD and xxxD) and 54mm APSH sensor (1D), is a very practical and inconspicuous lens to carry around. After I got it, I took a short walk through the city and snap some pictures from which I posted few bellow, more can be seen on Flickr here.
