I picked one up yesterday, so far I like it too, and definitely agree on the sharpness.

I'm waiting on mine in the mail. Looking at the review pictures on the internet it looks like it'll make an amazing macro lens especially wide open. I was going to get a lensbaby but I may not bother now

good choice!

I thought I would love the lens baby but it just sat in my bag
only took one photo that I was really impressed with
its a cool lens since you have to set the aperture rings into it
and you find where you want the focus point but after a while
it just sits

the 40mm has stayed on my camera for the last little while, love it!

not sure if you have been on POTN
but here is a sample thread

Oh I will forever! That's why I don't submit in "Rate the picture..." I'd never get above a 5/10

I'd never give you above a 3/10.

But seriously, I want to see some pics from these Shorty-Forties.

Came in the mail today and I put it on my XTi and took a few test shots and am EXTREMELY please with it for the $172 I paid shipped out the door. The other reviews on the internet were not kidding this thing is tack sharp wide open edge to edge and I love the focal length in that I can simply step a step or 2 closer to my subject and it makes a great portrait lens or step back a few steps and get a bit wider angle. All my lenses (18-55,28-105,50mm 1.8 and 70-210 F4) serve a primary purpose in my gear bag and I think the 40 will fill the role of street shooting lens and then if I need portrait work my 50 can do that and then depending on my needs for a zoom the 28-105 or 70-210 can handle that chore and last but not least old trust 18-55 kit lens will probably stay near the 18mm end for most of it's life with me now so if I need something a little wider than 28.

TL;DR the 40mm is the perfect walk around lens and is sharper than just about everything else in my gear bag wide open. I'll post a detailed review in the review thread soon complete with some nice shots and a real thorough usage. It's big test will be Medieval Times in Toronto this weekend it should perform pretty well even in a dimly lit theater
