I really dont understand this. The 5d MK IIs only disadvantage is the AF and drive speed, they both work hand in hand. You can get a 5D MK III for $3000 if you look around carefully.

Any one want to be my "friend" so I can win? :)

Hm, with a new 100-400 possibly on the way, unless they add IS, I see no real point. 5.6 is too slow for a prime.

I wouldn't mind if it was 18 as long as it isn't the same one. I'm saving up for a 5d MK III, so I may drop for this instead. Would love an articulating screen and if it had STM compatibility.

I'm selling the broken one as is if anyone wants to buy it.

I decided to just order the $100 anyway. The 16-35 vI can wait...

Yeah, I'm still on the hunt for mine... Since June 10th... The cheapest genuine one I've found is $100, but I can't afford that quite yet. I bought a 3rd party one to try to use the parts to repair mine, but I also broke that one. I am able to weigh it down with a lot of duck tape, but then I can't switch which way to shoot. It's kinda funny how mine broke the same way... Do you still have your broken one?

The quite came from Canon themselves from a book.

Can you give me a definitive definition of what uniquely constitutes L glass?
What is the common factor other than L and the red stripe?

There are non Ls that are better than Ls and there are Ls that are better than anything.

It's not aspherics or apos.  It's not flourite.  It's not weather sealing. 

(whisper this...  it's mar-ket-ing)

I have owned and will own great L glass, I'm not dissing it. 

Just the L glass bit, doesn't actually mean anything.

Doesn't stand for anything, represent, guarantee whatever.

I'm backing the small form compact high quality zoom for the Pro1 successor.

Unless it has a really tiny sensor like in the old days.  Which would make about as much sense as a pentax Q.

That is.. not much.
L lenses are described as:  "these lenses use special optical technologies [such as] Ultra-low Dispersion UD glass, Super Low Dispersion glass, Fluorite elements, and Aspherical elements to truly push the optical envelope." AND they are drip proof, weather resistant, and have stone build quality.

Wow, I almost purchased the pro1 a little while ago. I wanted to get it because it has a L lens in it. If they include an l lens in this one, then I may actually get it.

I really don't see how you could make a full frame "starter" camera. Remove AF adjustments? Instead of releasing a new camera, why not just sell the 5D MK II for cheap?

My ring (for my v1 lens) is broken EXACTLY the same way! I broke mine last month and have been trying to fix it at home. I tried glue, but it won't tighten. I try tape and it actually was able to stay in place better. I sent it to a place to repair... $175!!! They said that canon sold there's for 105... (I had another part broken on it also)

How come so few people have reviewed this camera? I havn't read one review about this lens either!
