Any chance they have the same email deal on the 24 f2.8 IS
Wow, the 24 and 35 (albeit more popular lengths) are still $849 at B&H. That will change, give it time.
Had I known people were truly that picky about 24 v 28, I would have waited and gotten the 28 for song. Hell, the 28 is the sharper one from the data I've seen.
The one downside of the imminent 50 IS? Filter size:
24 2.8 IS --> 58mm
28 2.8 IS --> 58mm
35 2.8 IS --> 67mm
50 ?.? IS --> Likely to be 67mm, one would think? Given how highly similar the 24 and 28 are, perhaps Canon is going up in pairs for common subcomponents to save cost.
With that thinking, that might put the new IS 85mm and 100mm non-L primes at 72 or 77. I would think it unlikely they'd go 77mm for a non-L, but it could happen, right?
