YES! It's a good deal.

It is a well established fact that the day after you buy yours Canon will release a rebate program that would have saved you $400.Murphy's Law! It was expressed the way I would say it!!!
Go ahead and grab one now, otherwise the price many never go down.Now you took it to the next level!
Seems like I'm part of that minority of people who are actualy grateful of having IS in a 35/2 lens.May be you are part of the minority of people willing to pay 900$ for such a lens!!!
You're right, we should wait until we have reviews from DPreview and rating from DxO for these caps. A light leak issue would be very bad, but might be fixed by a later firmware.....Oh, NO! They will definitely withdraw the defective ones and use black tape to fix the problem. They will introduce serial numbers to let us know which ones are fixed
Canon, if you are listening there are lots of catch up ....were not are. Now Canon stroke back with the mighty caps
Yes they do decrease IQ. If you don't believe me start shooting with yours turned off when you are doing hand held shooting and see how much your pictures improve.
Canon releases the EOS M. It gets 3-4 pages of conversation.They are their latest and greatest product
Canon releases new lens caps. Almost 10 pages of controversy.
I can't say I have a problem either, but for having used Nikon caps as well, this "new" design is interesting since it allows to put caps easily on lenses that have a long / narrow hood. It's not a revolution, but still much more practical. On these narrow lenses, if you want to have the cap on, the hood must be reversed.Most of my lenses have a petal type hood. On these lenses there is no problem with existing caps. To tell the truth I have some narrow and rather long hoods (135mm 70-200 f/4L IS) but I have never used them up to now. My more frequently used hoods are on the 70-200 f/2.8L IS II, 35mm 1.4L, 24-105 f/4L, 16-35 f/2.8L , TS-E 24mm and Zeiss 21mm f/2.8
It's IMO quite a bit more practical, if the price is not insane, I'll probably start a replacement campaign soon...
Agreed, but even Canon lenses/camera have their own problems in focusing. I was surprised to find my 35mm 1.4L which worked fine on my 5D2 needing about +10 AFMA on my 5D3And surely it's there in case Canon (or another manufacturer) decides to modify the upcoming firmware updates or camera bodies so that 3rd party lenses miraculously show strange behaviors :-pNow, don't give them ideas (in case they are still honest and aren't doing anything...)
Often 3rd party lenses are known to have issues with new camera bodies, but to be fair even some Canon lenses needed firmware updates to work the the 5d3.
But it might be realistic to say that for Canon (and probably other original manufacturers like Nikon) compatibility with existing 3rd party gear is not on top of their priority list :-p ... which is understandable since "Canon works with Canon" is a good selling point.

Not a problem either. Canon is full of BS lately...I feel like I'm the only person who has never had a problem with the Canon lens caps. Even when putting them on something like a 70-200 F/2.8 with the hood mounted, I've never had a problem doing so.I have not had a problem either... So I guess we're both weird
I have a tamron lens, and I do use the pinch feature of the lens cap but that sometimes results in the cap slipping out of my fingers and hitting the front element...
Hmm, I guess I'm just weird.
And a completely flawed logic tooimo, i would pick up this one as if i do not have 24-105mm. why? because of its macro at the end of tele (might save me a lens swap - yes i am just lazy in changing lens - and couple hundred dollars from buying 100mm macro)... i think that it might sharper than 24-70mm 2.8 even version II since it comes with is and macro capability but not i am not pretty sure... let see
A wishful thinking
