New 40mm pancake is indeed a good performer and cheaper when compared with 50 f/1.4
I tried out a rental 40mm f/2.8 two weeks ago.

It is fun to use, it seems to be sharp, but it has a bit of a caveat.

Purportedly it suffers from a bit of distortion. The digital users just correct for that using the computer, but us film shooters ....

In my brief trial, I didn't really shoot anything that would test for the distortion.
