My 1.4 is much sharper at 1.8 than a 1.8 is. I'll shoot at 1.8 to 2 regularly.

Fast glass is always great to carry around, especially when you can get it for so cheap like the 40 f2.8.

Well it's not just fast it's sharp. I already own something faster heck most people do it's called the nifty fifty but as has been pointed out the fifty wide open has NOTHING on the pancake wide open and doesn't start to match it until about F4

I have considered getting one and using an adapter. They are quite interesting.

Well you're also in the US where even with our dollar at par not much is the same price. Only places I've seen that are the same price are places like A-main hobbies vs Hobby Hobby up here for RC stuff on camera stuff you guys get WAY better pricing I had to use a boxing day sale + discount code to get it down to $152.99 + taxes

That's one reason why I love NH, no sales tax on that stuff!

well certain stuff is tax exempt here. Heck all my hobby level RC stuff is classed as "toys" so it's tax exempt. Gas is tax exempt and food items like bread,milk,eggs etc are all also tax exempt. There are some provinces with 0% PST but with our new HST coming into effect it just means that instead of the provinces with 0% PST paying the 5% GST they now pay 13% HST as the taxes are combined into 1 tax. Suffice to say people are pissed off
