Third Party Manufacturers / Re: A 40mm f/0.85 for Your EOS-M?

Wouldn't an EOS-M camera fit inside a f/0.85 aperture lens?

Change is hard for people. 

Those coming to the site for the first time will find it very useful and well laid out.  Those who have been lurking and participating for a while will all come around!  Nice work!

No one knows how long it will be there, but my guess is that they do a permanent price drop, they will anchor it at $2199 after the rebates end.

Woohoo!  Cancelled my earlier Amazon order that was already delayed 2-4 weeks, and got the same $1699 price (after rebate) and 4% ($80) back in B&H store credit! 

Thanks all!

I'm not sure why the original post says that it has concluded.  Amazon is still selling it for $1999 (with a $300 rebate after that) so it is still on, if you don't mind waiting 2-4 weeks for shipment.

$1699 for this lens is a GREAT price!  I just jumped in and grabbed it -- thanks for posting!

Very well done!  Would you mind posting a few original (untouched) images to see what kind of light you were working with?  Thanks!

Price it at $2999 and you'll have quite a few takers who can't quite make the financial leap to the f/2.8 version

As always, buyer beware.  This is most certainly a grey market camera (some people care about that, others don't) and this seller has a reputation of selling used cameras as new, or missing parts: http://feedback.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewFeedback2&userid=bigvalueinc&iid=230828116912&de=off&items=25&which=negative&interval=30&_trkparms=negative_30

A little one sided, aren't we?

I like being a grownup. I get to make my own decisions...
Of course, there are definitely a ton of positive comments too.  As I stated earlier in the post, some people don't care about grey market -- others do, so yes you can always make your own decisions.

The trouble with the type of feedback that has been given is that it is often for shipping used cameras when the buyer purchased a new one, or taking out some of the included accessories.  Slow shipping, poor communication, shipping damage -- that all happens, and I've sold about 2500 items on eBay so I know the complaints that I've had against me.

There are numerous 5D mkIII listings where it was shipped without accessories -- that should never ever happen. It just pays to do a little research and decide if you want to chance such a large purchase from a dealer who has been known to have honesty and trust issues.

These don't have a sun directly in the shot, but I thought they went with the general theme.

Reviews / Re: I'm amazed by my 5D Mark iii
« on: January 12, 2013, 12:36:50 PM »
Everyone was losing their heads over the price of the 5D III when it came out (it wasn't much different than the mkII if you include inflation).  The camera is a fantastic piece of machinery and the AF woes/shortcomings of the mkII are more than made up in the latest iteration. 

Congrats!

Reviews / Re: Review - Canon EF 50 f/1.2L
« on: January 12, 2013, 12:33:35 PM »
I've owned every version of this lens (1.8, 1.4, 1.2) and they are all worth the price you pay.  The 1.2L does amazing work, but you also have to have a good command of the camera with such razor sharp DoF.  I noticed a little backfocusing in low light, but it produces top-notch images 95% of the time.

Seriously -- almost ever "deal" that is posted about a great eBay price is for grey market items.  Either spell that out (here on CR) or don't post it.  Many people view it as an endorsement of a reputable vender - akin to specials at B&H, etc.
