Did it 'come' with it or were those items separate purchases? Because mine comes tomorrow and I bet you it is only a lens in a styro and cardboard box.
Quote from: B&HThe ES-52 is a bayonet-mount type lens hood specifically made to fit the Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM lens.
Not so sure about that, or at least, it's not a compllete description. I don't see any place on the lens for a bayonet type hood to mount, and I suspect it's a screw-in hood, or it comes with a screw-in hood adapter like the 50/1.8 II.
Everyone probably knows this already...but never ever use a compressed air canister to try and blow dust off your lens.
The compressed air that comes out is really cold and the sudden temperature differential will crack your lenses...trust me on this one!
+1 especially if you take the lens straight from the dishwasher and then use compressed air. Alternatively, if you're going to use cold compressed air, best to put lens in freezer for an hour or so beforehand - allow the dust particles to harden and temperature to equalize first
Look what i found looking around on Ebay
For only $90 (free shipping) worth the wait. I pre ordered one and will cancel my BH order tomorow morning.
Only of they could do a knock off of the 5D3 for $799...
They could do if they wanted to or if they thought they could get away with it....just take a new 5D3 to Shenzen and say "copy that for 1/4 of the MSRP"...and they would, but it would precipitate a trade war!
If they can clone a Canon 580EXII and sell it for 1/4 of the Canon price (see video below), then why not a camera body? I paid €126 (incl P&P + customs tax) for a YN-565, yet camera shops are charging €499 to €619 for a new 580EXII.
Where do you think Canon are getting most of their component parts made? What country manufactures the iPad and iPhone? Answer: China

Good for you.
The rest of us want cameras that didn’t have to be opened up and repaired to meet specs.
I ran an extensive test just now. I have concluded that this is a major issue as you can see:
First shot, LCD light OFF. Exposure time 5sec @ f4, 800 ISO:
Second shot, LCD light ON. The camera incorrectly metered the scene, underexposing dramatically with a metered value of only 4sec @ f4, 800 ISO:
I can't help starting this new thread, because I want us loyal early adopters and all customers to be treated fairly by Canon.
First, I'v shooting Canon for 15 years. I have two 5D3’s. Neither of them showed any “noticeable” effect. Both of them are still within 30-day return period. I AM packing them up today and sending them back for full refund.
Canon’s response to this light leak issue is unacceptable. For a $3,500 camera for which many of us have waited and saved, Canon should STOP shipping the defective products immediately. Whether it affects real world shooting or not, it is a product with defect. If Canon wants to earn trust from its loyal and prospective customers, be bold and offer to swap out the defective units unconditionally free of charge.
I know many of us do not want to lose the camera for some short period of time and that's why we have been defending Canon including myself. BUT, forgiving the bad business practice can only encourage abuse of the customers.
Remember iPhone 4? Apple ultimately paid the price by issuing $15 to all its owners. Some lawyer is probably happily laughing right now when they saw Canon's response.
I am writing to Canon today. This is not the solution. And this is not over yet.
