Thanks for the heads up on this. Had planned to wait to see if Canon would announce a new 35L, but at this price I couldn't wait any longer. I ordered one which should be here tomorrow.You are welcome
Apparently quite a few folks backed out of final purchase. According to the site, only 86% (of whatever number they were offering) were sold...
I have the 'holy trinity' – 35L, 85L II, 135L. Well spaced, and a versatile collection of focal lengths.+1 If money is not an issue
A P51 and a friendThe P-51 is a beauty... but boy... I LOVE the spitfire!
Jim & Click,
Thanks, the 109 is actually known as a Buchon and it's Spanish. That rascal Hitler sold 'em to Franco minus engines (ahh, what a gent, never buy a used car from a Nazi dictator, that's what I say). It wasn't until 1947 that we (the Brits) sold them Merlin engines to power them. It was weird to see a Spanish Buchon Bf109 painted in German colours (they had to get special permission to do so) and sounding like a Spitfire. I don't think there is an emoticon to describe all that.
Focal length: the longer the better.
Exposure time: the shorter the better ~ 1/1000 sec.
