Lenses / Re: Announcement on January 8, 2013? New Lenses [CR1]
« on: December 23, 2012, 09:30:47 PM »
anyone has a rough idea of the price for the 35L II? im seeing a price tag of roughly $2,000.00 correct me if im wrong.

Probably $1500 or so... If they go with $2000 that would cut the possible buyers down significantly....this is a general wide angle lens... Lots of people could want it...but only if priced properly...go a bit too high it becomes a specialty type pricing (like TS E, or ultra wide prime at 2k as in 14mm). No they will have to come somewhere in the 1500 to 1600 range...it will quickly slide down to the current L prime average of ~1400 after release and initial rush is gone. Not sustainable for a 35mm otherwise.
$1479 is the B&H price when there are no rebates. Why Canon would spend a lot on R&D to make a 35mm 1/4L II that will cost almost as version 1 costs. There is no logic on that.  :o Add to the fact that we know what Canon does to the prices of the next version lenses...  :(

Most interesting thing to me is that the EOS 1V is still alive.

$1699 new at B&H, film not included.
SHAME ON THEM! They should include a free film  ;D

Just the one??  Be a bit like selling you a 5D III with a 256MB CF card.....
They sell it with no card at all!

1998 - Canon G3 (which got a LOT of use)
G3 in 1998 ?  It was introduced by the end of 2002!

btw, I'm getting an 8-15mm fisheye for Christmas!  I can't wait to play with it.
Oh NOOO. I didn't want to get more lenses this period. I was thinking of it 6 months ago but had gotten over it.
OK, a TS-E 17mm L I had gotten that period was quite a consolation  ::)

This is a proper thread to wish everyone Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Please OP let us know when she gives you the present.  :)

but if it hurts your fanboy feelings when people dare to say that canon gear is overpriced... i beg your pardon but that´s what many people think.
It is overpriced but it is our choice whether to buy or not and what item to buy and when. So what's the point of whining?

Imagine if she did read this forum and gave you something else instead, let you sweat it out until New Year's Eve!!
Oh NO! That would be Murphy's Law in action  :o

Lower prices is never a problem. Instead, initial very high prices are. But we set our own rules. If price is very high and we think an item is not worth it we simply don't get it. Let them try to sell it.

For example this is what I am thinking about the new 24, 28, 35 IS prime lenses. They are simply not worth it. (But this is just me. I wouldn't get them anyway.)

Today (21 Dec) is the big day. The world is going to end and we're all going to die. Remind your wife of this and suggest to her that you open your presents this morning.

Then, pretend to be surprised when the world doesn't end (unless, of course, the Eta Carinae hypernova event happens today and we actually do all die).
So the non-5DMkIII world ends and a the 5DMkIII just begins  :)

Don't know what I did to deserve my wife but I would so do it again and again (and again)! I hope you have as much fun with yours as I have had with mine. 8)
Now you have to be more precise: you mean wife or camera?   ;D
Well, why not both? ;D
Correct  ;D

While finding a hiding spot for my wifes present at home (macbook air), i was rummaging at the back of the guest room closet to see if there was space there, i found a 5d mkiii kit!!!!

Well you had better upgrade that Air to a Pro Retina! Fair's fair! Otherwise she might swap the 5DIII back for a 6!
;D
