A few notes about this lens...
1) I've read that it's better to get this one IF you want a pancake lens for a Canon DSLR than the 28mm. I've got the 28mm STM 2.8, and it's OK, but the focusing is notoriously loud -- enough to NOT be able to rely upon the lens for video. Most folks recommend the 40mm as well because it's a better walking around prime than the 28mm.
2) Both KEH and Amazon are selling the US spec version of this lens right now for $179. $150 isn't a bad deal if you don't care about warranty, but be mindful of the cost of shipping throwing this into "maybe I should get the one with the warranty overnight from Amazon" realm.
Great lens, though I don't believe the $150 price is anything to gawk at. I purchased this about a year ago for the same price from Best Buy. Great lens, great price. Though $100 would be more fitting since the newer 50mm 1.8 is priced at $120.

I have not heard from Massdrop in close to 2 weeks now about the shipping date.
How do we know if our shipment was sent, or if we are one of those back ordered. Or were none of the lenses received and all are back ordered?
The group's bulk order arrived earlier to our warehouse in New Jersey and many of the individual packages have already shipped back out. However, upon taking inventory of everything received, our team was made aware of a backorder affecting a small handful of units. Rest assured, we've reached back out to the vendor to resolve this hiccup and expect to have the remaining units in our warehouse shortly.
We understand that the additional wait time is undesirable. If you would prefer to cancel your order, please contact Community Support using the “Contact Support” button in your transactions page (http://massdrop.com/transactions).
You can expect an update from us on 11/4 or sooner if something comes up.

is this bad boy a wide angle w/ AF?
Venturee
You know what wide angles are, right? and the dude above your comment said "and autofocuses quite fast"
I have one of these. Picked it up grey market from e-bay for only $100. The massdrop version has a warranty though, so up to you if it is worth it.
Overall I like the lens, compact, takes decent shots, and autofocuses quite fast (though it is worth noting I am adapting it to an a7ii). The build quality is nothing special, but at this price it doesn't really matter.
I prefer my Voigtlander Nokton 40mm f 1.4 by far, but for the price this pancake can not be beat.

This is available grey market on e-bay for $100. Iffy on the warranty though, so this may be the better deal.
Has anyone else's package been frozen for the past few week? The last activity I have says it was tendered to USPS but the USPS tracking number hasn't changed at all.
DHL is terrible. One week still no package. Less than 250 mile trip. Ridiculous.
Man this new dhl shipping is pretty terrible at least for me here in the states. Tracking is pretty much useless and its even slower than the super saver shipping massdrop was using before. I hope its saving someone a ton of money cause otherwise its not worth it.

Does anyone have any comparisons from this to the Canon 50mm f/1.8 STM?
Load 2 more comments
I have the 40mm 2.8 STM and the slightly older 50mm 1.8 II (not the newest 50mm 1.8 STM). The 40mm is a lot more solid, and obviously smaller. For a crop body like the 7D, 70D, Rebels, etc. I like the EF-S 24mm 2.8 STM pancake lens a whole lot more than either of these other two. 40 and 50mm are too long...Even this 40mm lens on a full-frame body is long for my preference. I prefer to shoot a 35mm prime on FF most of the time. But, the size and weight are what really set this lens apart. I'd rather carry this 40mm lens on my 6D for hours and miles than my 35mm 1.4.
tl;dr: Both the 40mm 2.8 and 50mm 1.8 can be used to take fantastic photos, but I highly recommend the EF-S 24mm 2.8 STM for a crop body.

The 50mm f1.8 is faster and sharper.... but larger.... this 40mm is really nice for keeping it light, for times when you're only carrying one lens.
