Plus they wont have any negative reviews on a new lens with no AF!

The SMC Pentax-M 28mm f3.5 lens is actually a really sharp lens.

The reason I love BBF so much is that it really allows you to take advantage of full time manual focus. Otherwise, when you touch the shutter again you are fighting yourself.
It really shines with weaker AF cameras like the 5DII, as I use center point AF to grab focus, then recompose and tweak focus manually while shooting. Really increases hit rate with shallow DOF shots.

Happy July 4th!

These tools are built tough for this reason. If things are still working fine then you are good to go!

It concerns me that "Elegant tungsten silver brand ring" is the 4th feature listed?!

I picked up this lens for my 7D to play around with since I rarely shoot this wide.
More to come.

I'm excited for that rumored tilt-shift macro lens! I shoot a lot of product photography, so it sounds pretty interesting.

There is a Best Buy store in NYC by my office. As I work in developing consumer products, I like to pop in there from time to time to do market research. The Canon M system never appeared in that store! How can a new system like that ever get off the ground if it isn't supported by a big box store like Best Buy?

The camera section continues to get smaller as their tablet section continues to grow.

You better use that camera quick! I hear it's at the end of it's life cycle. ;)
