Today I had to make a run down to OfficeMax to pick up a printer. Trying to minimize the mundaness of this task, I decided to make a stop over at Haight Ashbury. I'd passed the neighborhood by car before but hadn't yet had an opportunity to walk around. Accompanying me was my 5D and Voigtlander Ultron 40mm f/2.0 manual focus lens. The Voigtlander pancake is one of the best street photography lenses ever. 40mm is a near perfect focal length for this task- wide enough to capture some streetscapes or buildings, but with enough reach to keep faces visible. It's a really small lens but has a nice heft to it. When you hold it, you feel like you're holding something solid. The manual focus ring has a nice steady twist to it, not the slippery slide of modern autofocus lenses like the Canon 50mm f/1.4.
