more to the point any news on finding people that are actually going to buy them?
I may be tempted to get on of them for video...not sure yet. WOuld have to try it and see some reviews, but I do a lot of family video with my 24mm. I like primes but if it was IS on top of it, I would look into it. Though I have other lenses on my hit list first, like the new 24-70 II.
this is my point, its a LOT of money for a slow prime with IS which goes a large way to paying for a good chunk of the upcoming 24-70 which from the charts looks to be a screamer. I guess it depends on how important the IS is. Even if they had made these primes f2 they would have had a whole lot more appeal but 2.8? hardley gets the blood pumping
