With our powers combined, "We" the loyal and (for the most part...satisfied) customers of Canon command you (with a pretty pretty please....and cherry on top) to release your secret weapon - The 14-24 2.8L upon us to smite thee Nikon.
Let it be known, this day of 31st (it just so happens to be my birthday - the "Big" 30) of Augusta, of 2012, that "We" ( I'm really just speaking for myself) will gather groupies to petition everyday, if we must, for you to release it ASAP.
Just trying to have a little fun here...
But seriously, why make us wait? Is it because you haven't quite released the 24-70 II and are afraid this will trump the profits of the 24-70? Some of you may think i'm crazy, but i've really considered purchasing the Nikon 14-24 2.8 (and all of the other verbage (SP) along with an Nikon mount to EF adapter just to use their lens MANUALLY....
From reading some of the other forums, it looks like Canon will be releasing a slew of other lenses before they even touch this one. And before the Die-Hard "Primers" respond, I have tons of primes that I love using, however, it would be nice not having to take a few of them...but rather having this bad girl.
So everyone, don't take this posting too serious, it was meant to lighten the mood.
I would appreciate any insightful commentary.
Have a GREAT Labor-day weekend. I'm photographing at a blues festival...a wedding...and a bunch of other stuff this weekend.
