I'am so excited about this lens specially for it is Macro capabilities,
You may be better off getting the 100L if macro is your thing. I wouldn't get this lens for serious macro work.
Small size regarding the IQ i'am sure it will be better than the 24-105 F4L i don't believe the theory of a new product worse than the old one also i don't care about web sites reviews.
History is littered with examples of companies coming out with products worse than earlier offerings. Not all web site reviews are worth reading, but I wouldn't discount all of them either.
The price is high but for me still cheaper than getting 2 lenses, any way if any body don't like don't buy it there is no need for complaining or whining.
Well, thanks for your unquestioning support for Canon. Hopefully it means Canon has to ding the rest of us less to please its shareholders.
- I don't have a serious macro work so i am not interested to get a dedicated macros lens.
- I didn't see a product comes out with less specification or less capabilities maybe worse build quality or something like vista has less stability than Windows XP but still newer OS with more features.
- at the End this my opinion & that is yours why should i complain if i don't like it i will regret my purchase then i will sell it simple as that.
"unquestioning support for Canon" why because i am interested for the lens?
