will also work for mounted flash, just off camera needs more modelling

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.

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.

It also makes a handy flashlight in a pinch.
