Street photography with Canon 40mm pancake

The 40mm pancake is the latest super slim high image quality prime lens from Canon with a fixed focal length of 40mm and wide f/2.8 aperture. I recently bought the lens prior to my trip to Zanzibar and only had a chance to test it during my walks in Stone Town I fell absolutely in-love with this lens. It is fast, sharp, and light which is ideal for crowded places where people tend to get camera-shy and intimidated from a DSLR camera with big wide-angle lens.
