EF-S L would be brilliant...

If it was a 4.0, or a 2.8, or dare I say, 2.0 (for those that don't mind regular L heft).

The EF-S 17-55 f/2.8 is already L quality as far as optics are concerned. It's just missing the tank like build quality and weather sealing.

Does anyone know why Canon has avoided making EF-S "L" lenses? Do they figure that most APS-C consumers don't want the added weight, so they stick with a plastic build?

I think its more that the L is linked to their high end lenses for use on high end dSLRs... IE: Full Frame.

EF-S can only be used on the crop sensor bodies, and not the full frame, soooo, yeah, it goes out the window there.

I'm aware of sensor size and compatibility, but if that's the case, why would they have an APS-C in their xD line without an L option to the EF-S line?

CR10?

You should take a cue from Canon and make the rating CRX  ;D

As an added bonus, X = 10 in Nova Roma  8)

"High End" is subjective.
Sure, they need to coddle us FF users, but some of the crop deficiencies can be remedied with good, fast (.95) glass.

Instead, they make 900 different 3.5-5.6 lenses.

MFT will quickly swallow up all of the amateurs and semi-pros if this practice continues.

subjective sure, but its still basically their top of the line lens - if it can't be used on *some* camera's, its gotta be a slight issue.

Maybe a new range might work though- EF-Si, or something...

@ Musuoka:

Technically that's why its the 1Dx...  :P

The way that things are going with Canon lens releases, I could actually believe this!

Canon has three ways to justify a massive price hike:

1. IS
2. II
3. Red ring

Fortunately they haven't yet realised that a red dot adds even more value than a red ring!  ;)

Depends who u ask... =P

If I were offered a new M9 with a Noctilux, or an Canon cash voucher for an equivalent amount, I'd take the Canon and add to my collection =P
