This is surprising considering the 40 2.8 is marketing it as video lens.  But maybe the video posted above wasn't made with an STM compatible camera:

From B&H EF 40 2.8 Preview:
"Most importantly for video shooters; STM technology is a camera-body based attribute that, when paired with an STM designated lens, offers smooth and silent continuous autofocus while capturing video."

Apparently the 5D3 Firmware Version 1.1.3 will:

1) Support the single focal length EF40mm f/2.8 STM lens that is to be released at the end of June, 2012.

So it's likely that's what's going on in the video above - no support for STM in the camera they used to test the 40 2.8 - although it's not clear as the review explicitly mentions STM.
