EF 24-70mm 1:2,8L II USM 2299 Euro
LOL that's $3011.35 Canadian. This has to be a mistake... or the Europeans are getting seriously ripped off. Or maybe they throw in a 7D with a kit lens if you pre-order?
This is the case since the introduction of the EURO
We see often a 1:1 converting between US dollar and euro
Also in the price included - in the Netherlands - there is 19% VAT
So....we have to be patient waiting for prices to drop.
But the 24-70 should have stellar performance
if I want to buy it.
I was planning to upgrade more lenses for my growinpath towards FF. I guess 24-105 is a serious alternative.
Edit: EF 24-70mm 1:2,8L II USM 2299 Euro
that is 3010 US dollar (rate February 7th 2012)
Holy cow.....700 US dollar more on this side of the ocean
And, 1200 euro more than the 24-70 MKI...pffff
