Glad to see that Canon thinks the global recession is over :o

In what reality are they living? Can I get some of those meds?

the only thing I can think of is Canon wants to clear the shelves of other old-but-reasonably-priced lenses.  when you look at a 24mm f/2.8 IS USM at $800, suddenly the 28mm f/1.8 USM looks like a crazy winning purchase.  even the 35mm f/1.4 L USM at $1300 looks unbelievably fantastic at only $500 more.  (you can't tell me that L-build quality and f/1.4 aren't worth 60% more than a non-L f/2.8 prime)  in fact, I'm so scared of what the future has in hold that I am very close to purchasing the current 35 L because it's looking like the bargain purchase of the year at this point.

these have to be aimed at budding cinematographers with the IS and the price is still significantly lower than any cine lenses. that is all i can think of to justify it
