I can certainly see the appeal of it, but as you mentioned already, from an Events PoV... Also, UWA videography has possibly just gotten a fricktonne more exciting for lots of folk!

certain AA lithium batteries, in rare cases, may become extremely hot during usage in such products.
I feel so foolish now for having paid £1800 for a 5D3 when it was being sold locally for just £2999.99 without running the risk of receiving an incorrect power cord
That power cord must be made of pure gold to be worth £1199
You pointed out the reason. If it rips off any Canon patents, it's likely expired ones.
Expired patents = public domain prior art = no cause of action for a lawsuit
Right, that would be it - I'm forgetting just *how* old this lens is and how long Canon has been developing lenses. Probably just the reason why Yn is releasing 50/1.8 and 50/1.4 just now, they had to wait for the oldest lenses to be not protected anymore.
Imho suits Canon right, still producing a dinosaur like the 50/1.8 needs to be punished.
If you are trying to pass your noisy pics as art to the Technogeeks on this forum your pictures are not going make the grade.
However if you take it to other forums it might be ok and accepted.
This for the most part is the wrong crowd to consult on this matter.
I wasn't trying to pass off my crappy pics as anything other than what they are. I mostly lurk here and there are endless discussions of noise in the pics. I can see the noise as well as anyone but sometimes it seems like people can't see the picture for the noise.
Like that crappy pic. Yeah, it's noisy, but I love that picture. I'd much rather have that picture, noise and all, than not have it.
The guy who I suspect might agree is Dustin Abbott, in reading his review of the canon 35mm vs the Sigma, he seems to be looking at the picture more than the technical stuff.
