It didn't take long for the McForty to drop. AUD$129...with free shipping. That's getting close to 50 f/1.8 pricing.http://www.eglobaldigitalcameras.com.au/canon-ef-40mm-f-2.8-stm-lens.html
I know some people feel a bit ambiguous about eGlobal but I have had no problems at all with smaller items like this. For big dollar items, particularly those with CPS qualification relevance, I do stick with my regular local dealer.
