Nice review, Justin. It's not a perfect lens, and it is too big, but it would still be my choice at the moment for a reasonably affordable 50mm prime.
I am still waiting for Canon to bring us an equivalent of the 35IS in a 50mm. If it was similarly sized and performed similarly, it would be be my choice.
Thanks! I'm not so concerned with weight since so much of my work is commercial and I pack pretty heavy all-around (lenses are the least of my worries). Though I can't stack it like I can my Canon 50 1.4 & 15 2.8 Fisheye
It will be interested to see what Canon delivers in the prime territory. Their wider-angle options have been more consumer based and haven't interested me in the slightest these past few years.
The one lens I will NEVER sell. Absolutely unique.
Clean the front? No problem, the front glass is a protector like a uv filter, and not that expensive to replace. I have only wiped my lens after heavy rain when the glass is covered in droplets.
I honestly think sometimes to sell my 200 2.0 to get 300 2.8ii. I didn't have actual experience with 300 2.8ii but I've read it's a truly unique lens. I may need to get it as a CPS loan.
So let's face it, you're only going to buy this lens if you don't already have a 16-35. So who has 3K for an extra 5mm?
Where are the XXD Cams that meets these (AF, MP,...) specifications?
Perhaps when Canon feels threatened by Nikon in that segment, instead of feeling secure as the market leader?"Press release: Inspired photos with flair"
Wasn't that the press release for the 300mm f/4 VC
DOPF? Except that they misspelled that last word...
