Canon 5D2 with Canon 40mm f/2.8 lens.

This photo was taken using my Canon 5D2 camera fitted with the Canon 40mm f2.8 lens. The 5D2 is a great camera; I've taken loads of great photos with it. It is now my spare and I would not part with it for a variety of reasons.
A preferred fixed focal length lens for photo journalists using range finder cameras in the 1950s and 1960s was 35mm. It provided a wider field of view than a 50mm lens (the lens most often thought of as 'normal' on a 35mm camera) without any eye-catching distortion. The Canon 40mm lens was introduced a couple of years ago and when attached to a full frame digital camera body it yields images of comparable focal length to the 35mm lens on a rangefinder camera . A unique feature of the 40mm lens is that it is really small; when attached to the camera body it projects just 1" making it a very discrete lens that takes up almost no room at all in the camera bag. They are inexpensive lenses coming in around $230. It's a fairly fast lens too at f2.8.
When I bought this lens I thought I'd use it a lot. It's not the sharpest lens in the world but that's OK.
