    Wow, this new lens certainly does look to be a winner. Great color and dang sharp!

    If you get the 27mm pancake I highly recommend the Hoot Hat Pancake Micro:

    Just got my silver 27mm yesterday. I don't need it, but it's pretty.

    Hood hat lens protector. Great for covering the lens to avoid damaging the lens front element in the bag etc. I use them instead of plastic ever lost lens caps.
