Saw a picture of this today:

and my first thought was that if you set it down somewhere it would be like looking for a misplaced contact lens.  I still miss the simple things, like f/stop rings, depth of field scales, focusing rings (although this does seem to have one)...  Tongue

This reminds me of my old Nikkor 45p.. loved that little lens, especially attached to a small body..

This lens interests me for use with video.  Anyone tried one yet?

Hi
I have the 40 mm, f/2 'pancake' from Voigtlander. About CDN $500. It is manual focus only but easy enough to use with the centre point to help find the focus, using the normal screen. It compares very well -- better results in fact -- with my 24-105 at the 40 mm focal length. If I did not have the VC lens I would be very tempted by this new lens.

The 40mm pancake is really tiny and could easily be mistaken for a 12 or 25mm extension tube!
