    Yes, they would and they do, as do the other manufacturers. Especially with lenses at wide to normal focal lengths it can't be helped, not without making the lenses much bigger, heavier, more complex and more expensive than the market will bear.

    Funny but the reviews so far haven't found this to be an issue.

    Photozone rated it ''Highly recommended"", testing it on 5D MKII.

    As far as testing it on film, give yourself a break. It's 2012, and regular Joe Six-Pak doesn't shoot film anymore. IMO it wouldn't really make sense to test lenses out on 35mm anyway when you've got 22 and 36MP FF DSLR's that will give you far more consistent lab results than scanning slides or negs. From what I experienced with the 40mm the other day, shooting wide open, you'll have some pretty muddy corners if you're shooting color neg. The vignetting is pretty insane. I dunno...If you want the size advantage, than you've already justified it. Otherwise a 50mm f/1.8 (or two) is a smarter option.

    Also, why not go with the voightlander 40mm f/2?

    Seriously, if the OP asks how it performs with a film camera, on a film forum, then that's fair enough! I am curious too - I'm also curious how it suits digital Canons, but there are other useful spots on the internet for that. Singularity is APUG's strength & usefulness.

    Easy, guys; the thought police hasn't heard you yet...
    Using film since before it was hip.

    Yes, Canon develops lenses that vignette worse on a FF DSLR than a film body (crop DSLR's crop much of the vignetting from FF lenses). Film does a better job with light hitting the film plane at odd angles. In some cases, this means a noticeable reduction in vignetting.

    Nikon DX lenses vignette badly on film bodies because they're designed for crop sensors, not FF. Many lenses designed for FF DSLR's perform better on film for the reasons mentioned above.

    Exactly.

    I'm curious about this, too. I'm planning to buy the 40mm pancake, but only after I get back from a trip in a month or so. In the mean time, if anyone has purchased this lens and shot it on film, I'd love to see samples.

    The voigtlander is over twice the price and not AF. I'd love to have the Voigtlander, but I'm attracted to the Canon as an inexpensive compact lens with a lot of character to shoot at bar-b-ques and tailgates. The nifty fifty is too long for my taste (plus I have dozens of 50's), and I've always had a thing for pancake lenses.

    Gee, there must be some really cheesed off EOS FF owners...
