Canon 40mm f/2.8

Within the next week I'm probably going to purchase the new Canon pancake lens; the 40mm f/2.8 STM.

As you probably know, I recently bought the 60D. The kit came with an 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 lens. All things considered it's pretty good. 18mm is nice and wide for indoor use, and the 135 is a nice bump above the usua 18-55mm range. It's a beast though... I've also been wanting something with a wider aperture for low light situations. 

I've noticed that when I'm shooting around with the 18-135mm, I tend to pull into the 35-60mm range the most, so the 40mm should be a great middleroad. (APS-C crop makes this thing about 64mm) A buddy of mine has the 50mm f/1.8 which is a great lens. I tried it out on his T4i though and I thought the crop was a little too tight for me. Sure would be nice to have a f/1.8 around though... 

So once I pick it up I'll probably post a review here. Come to think of it... I should still write up something for the kit lens I have...
