I stack all my hoods up and place them in my 70-200 f2.8 case, which I pack in my luggage.

"A new Zoom Lock lever also enables photographers to lock the zoom position at the extreme wide end to prevent damage to the lens in transit"That was the old version this one is the other way around
Typo/Misprint??? Isn't the lens fully extended at 24mm, would you not want to keep it at 70mm when carrying it?
Something about this lens is odd... It just doesn't look right for some reason. I can't exactly put my finger on it but something seems off.
Maybe it's the lack of writing around the red ring. Or, does it look too small to anyone else? (despite the 82mm filter threads (which is also really odd))
I thought something looked wrong too. The font used for the labeling (24-70 Ultrasonic) is the same as a traditional EF lens, rather than L lenses. Also missing is the red lettering indicating mm near the focus/distance window.
If you hold your hand over the red ring, this lens looks more like a standard EF than an L.
Question: Can someone please explain why digital sensors have a much narrower dynamic range then film ? This is apparent to anyone shooting outdoors in bright light - the shadows are black and the skies blown out.
Will digic 5 improve this? Is it possible to improve it?
When I moved from the 5D to the 5DMkII I had the 5D converted to IR at a local shop for about $350. I've been happy with the results even though some Canon glass produces hotspots.
That seems to be the most reasonable idea. I was considering picking up an old XSi and having it done . . . but couldn't rationalize spending the money on anything other than more glass.
