The T4i AF is not super fast, but it is far better than nothing. It also works with the new STM lenses for faster and quiter AF as compared to a normal EF or EF-s lens.

QuoteI believe you should just save that extra little $$$ and get the 17-55mm 2.8 IS. Its well worth it and wont disappoint. You lose little $$$ over depreciation with good glass.
Patience is a virtue, and Impatience is an expensive commodity.
Thank you for you advice guys. I know that 17-55 is THE EF-S lens, but I prefer the range of 15-85. It also costs much less.
My main concern is that the USM motor (which I think is the most vulnerable part of the lens) of 1.5 year used lens, well, could stop working 1.5 years earlier than of a new one and will cost me at least (if not more) the same 165$ to fix it. Can anyone predict the average lifetime of it? How durable are these things?
I haven't seen any information on the launch of the other EOS M colours. B&H only has black and I haven't been able to even find a concrete launch date for black. I'd like to get a white one for my wife so if anyone has information about colour availability in North America, that would be great.I read that the white body will be sold in the USA initially thru the Canon website. It will only be in stores in Japan??
My friend just bought the current one on craigslist... I keep teasing him that the new one is coming out and his will be obsolete... maybe i can get his even cheaper haha. But, as we know canon lately, dont count on the new one being under 2k.I think it will not be under $3K. I also think that Canon is or will be rethinking new product introductions. If the tooling is complete, they will probably go ahead, but if its just in the final design phase, it will get delayed. The recent drops in prices accross the photography industry are a sign of lagging sales, and the resultant cash flow issues.
I just bought the 16-35II today. So far I'm impressed with it, and lovin the 16mm wide end.Mine shipped today, so it should be here by Friday. I never warmed up to my 17-40mmL, so I am hoping I like this one. Right now, I have a old Tokina 17mm f/3.5 Prime that I do like, but I have a use for the zoom.
Why is it not possible for me to post any threads anymore in the general cam forum and why was a thread closed just after I placed an answer related to a battery topic in a previous thread?
There was nothing in it against any forum rules!
Furthermore I did not receive any explanation nor PM.
And now I can not post any further post in the above forums?!?
Please, I expect an explanation! I feel kind of censored!
I sent my 5D3 in because I messed up the focus screen and told them to do the light leak repair at that same time. I shipped the package out via UPS ground on a Monday, and I got the camera back that Friday, so it was a very fast turn around. I have no idea where you got 7-10 days from, but that certainly wasn't my experience. Canon Prof Services also replaced my focus screen and cleaned it for free, which I wasn't expecting. So far I've had superb experience with them and couldn't be happier.What Canon quotes and their actual turnaround time may vary with workload. I guarantee that if I send a parcel by UPS ground to Canon from where I live, it will take 4 days for them to get it, and if a weekend is involved, 6 days. Don't assume that the entire country is one day away from a Canon repair facility by UPS ground.
