I also find the dof preview button not only pointless but idiotically placed, especially on my 5D2. Any way to disable that? 

But sorry back on topic - IS in body bad! Boo! We like lens IS because it makes nice humming noises and clicking sounds so we know we are getting our moneys worth!


And adds extra atmosphere to our video soundtrack!

I personally like the dofp button.  Prefer the position on my 3 (similar to the 1 series) but it is useful for me at times, especially if using off camera flash on a stand, gives me a visual preview of flash modelling.

Curious about this off camera flash and dof preview button now. Might have to try that out. Thanks!

Sweet! Just tried it! How did I not know that? I mean I've accidently hit that button so many times you'd think I woulda noticed! Haha! Cheers mate!

The best DOF-Preview was in the EOS 5, eyes left up in the viewfinder! Yay! ;)  Canon should make the Eyecontrol again, and the automatic DOF-Modus (A-DEP)...

Yes! It (Eyecontrol) was a great feature on the 50e when I had that camera :)

No worries.  Glad to be of service.

I'll take 1 of the 50mm f/1.2 L IS please.

I've been waiting for the next gen 50mm f/1.2 for the past few years...

Sounds promising, but I'd kill for an affordable IS prime.

This is Canon's big advantage over Nikon right now; Nikon might have better dynamic range and higher resolution and all around a better system, but if you shoot at night, you can get an IS prime.

The drawback though, is that it costs $800 for a crop 35mm 2.8 IS. Almost makes you want to buy the 17-55mm 2.8 IS instead.

The 17-55 is an EF-S lense, so this is no comparison. Or, just for a few.

It also makes a handy flashlight in a pinch.
