looks like my sign up's worked.

I'd be ecstatic with an L, and extremely happy with a 50.  After all free is my favorite price.  Thanks to everyone at CR,

happy new year..   keep up the excellent work.

Hi everyone!

I've just registered and signed up too!Long time reader, first time poster...
I own the 35 Art but I wouldn't hesitate a second to sell it if I won the 35 L II.

Happy new year to all of you!

Thank you CR!

Great idea !!!

I hope that the "foreigners" are considered equal of the other...

However, participate at the forum has given me many satisfactions.

Thank you CR!

I would like to congratulate all the folks at CR for the give away.  This has been a rather nasty year with all of the terrorism, the nasty politics, and from what I have observed, a general bad attitude by many people.  This site is always fun, if not heated at times.

A generous gift offering is great, and greatly appreciated.  What an oasis from the nastiness this past year.

Let's hope that the coming year will be a year of more humane and kind treatment of each other.  And of course great new kit with lots of DR, IQ, FPS, and everything else that we are all drooling for.

Best wishes to all the CR regulars too.

I love Canon Rumors, have been an active member on this site for years... both contributing, reading, sharing.

Well done CR for the giveaway generosity... really great of you. I've signed up, 'gotta be in it, to win it'!

(I have the Canon 50mm STM already, if I win one of these, that will be a gift to one of my friends or relatives.  If I would win one of the other lenses, particularly the EF 100-400mm L II or 35mm f/1.4 II, I'd be as happy as a child at Christmas... lol)

Hope you are having a great festive season, and enjoying a bit of a break.

Paul
I appreciate using my Canon DSLRs along with a host of lenses & many accessories to capture quality photos, and share with friends.

Firstly, a blessed and happy festive season to one and all!

Even if I don't pick up a lens, I'm already a winner. I've learnt so much on this forum over the last few years and knowledge is one gift horse I'll never look in the mouth!  ;D

Best of luck everybody and to those who do win the lenses, may you take many incredible images with them!  :D

I just joined the mailing list. Hope it is still open. I wonder what is the probability of winning. When will be the draw?

Look at the forum stats.

543981 Posts in 25631 Topics by 11346 Members.

Assuming that 80 or even 90 percent of those mebers are no longer active, that leaves 2-3 thousand active ones.  If a large number of members make duplicate entries with different member IS's ans email addresses and are eliminated, your odds could be far better than most lotteries.

Don Haines, fluffy cat, canoeist, and frozen Canuck are really different people.......

And I am sure that Neuro, Mt. Spokane, Dilbert, jrista, and Click are really the same person :) and they can type really fast!!!!
