well I ordered mine yesterday and got it today. It is a great walk around lens, the camera (5D MKIII) just feels like I am walking about with a body only. Also the focusing is quieter and seems much faster than my EF 50mm 1.4, havent tried in low light yet.

Thank you for your samples - it seems to me that the lens has a great overall quality in terms of color reproduction, contrast, bokeh and sharpness. I ordered my copy of that lens yesterday but I think I have to wait a couple of days until it arrives. After waiting so long for such a lens (was interested in the Voigtländer Ultron) it comes true ... funny thing.

Looks great, I like what I see. Do you live in the UK or is this early delivery somewhere else?

looks pretty crisp, you dont happen to have an IR filter to try out a long exposure IR shot say around 3 mins to see if it is susceptable to getting hot spots in the center of frame?

no sorry I don't. I'm toying with idea of converting my 5D Mk I to IR, so if this is a suitable lens it might make me take the leap, as my other lenses are apparently susceptible to hot spots.

Just got mine this morning from Videoguys (Australia). It appeared in stock (registered to get a notification once it's available) on Monday afternoon so ordered it in a snap. BTW it's made in Malaysia.

It's a sensational lens, though I expected it to be quieter/quicker when focusing. Canon should have designed it with IS, it would have been the best lens ever.

It's a bit heavier than it looks like. It slightly made the 550D tilt forward. On the 5DII it's just perfect.

Here's a quick snap I took with the 5DII (only resized to half with DXO, no other effects). Mind the wall on the left hand side, it's not the lens.

BTW, I just ordered one from Videoguys, currently out of stick, 7-14days for canon to get them.
