ISO 12233 Resolution Chart sample crops have been added to the Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM Pancake Lens Review page.
These results would be quite good for a lens at any price, but they are very impressive for a tiny $200.00 lens.
The Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM Pancake Lens is in stock at B&H, Adorama and Amazon.

I've received a question about the Canon EOS 5D Mark III DSLR's write speed using SDHC and CF Cards simultaneously. I thought I would share the answer with you.
With a Lexar Professional 32GB 1000x UDMA-7 CompactFlash Memory Card installed alone, the 5D III will deliver a burst of 33 RAW images (photographing a dim scene).
The 5D III's max SDHC/SDXC write speed is slower than its CF max write speed - and the UHS-I standard is not supported. With a Lexar Professional 32GB 133x SDHC Memory Card installed alone, the 5D III will deliver a burst of 16 RAW images (photographing the same dim scene).
Put both cards in the camera at the same time and the 5D III's write speed will be the speed of the card being written to. Writing to the 1000x CF card will result in a 33 RAW frame burst and the 133x SDHC card will take 16 RAW frames.
By default, the 5D III will write to the last card slot used. You can change this card slot designation in the first tool menu tab (Record func+card/folder sel). The card slot numbers are indicated on the memory card door. CF is slot 1, SDHC is slot 2.

This deal was supposed to end on June 20th, but ... it is still live and still very hot: Use coupon code June612 for free shipping and coupon code 20SLR612 to save 20% on refurbished Canon DSLR Cameras, Lenses and Flashes at the Canon Store.
The lens inventory has been ravaged, but additional models show up occasionally - keep checking.
There are many good DSLRs avilable - at amazing prices. Some examples:
Refurbished EOS 7D - $1,087.20
Refurbished EOS 60D - $639.99
Refurbished EOS Rebel T3i with EF-S 18-55mm IS II Lens - $511.99
Expect Canon refurbished gear to be like new.
Formerly scheduled to end on June 2nd, the current Canon DSLR, Lens and Flash Rebate Program is once again scheduled to end - on Sat June 30th. The best time to buy Canon gear is usually during a rebate, so take another look at what rebates are available.
The Canon rebate programs have been harder to figure out in recent years, but ... I'll be surprised if this one is extended again. Just my wild guess.
Be sure to check out the easy-to-use special Canon rebate page at B&H.
If buying a DSLR, don't forget the $400.00 Canon PIXMA Pro9000 Mark II Inkjet Printer combo rebate ($500.00 for the Pro9500).
