i want an upated one from canon. or better yet, a non-L FF version dang it.. a 24/2 with USM. I don't use it often enough to justify the L, but it sure would be nice to have.

There is an updated 24L Mark II already. But yeah, Canon have all these older non-L wide angle primes that are way overdue for updates. A 35mm f/2 Mark II with the build and AF of the 85mm f/1.8 would be awesome. 35mm is my favorite focal length, but I'd definitely take a look at a 24mm f/2 Mark II if it were built to those specs.

At Amazon, 35mm is $1800 USD, which is about $850 less than the conversion.

I can't find the 24mm on Amazon. I assume they aren't taking pre-orders yet?

The conversion doesn't work in camera pricing structure. I think others have already established that it doesn't....

Then you'll be freaking shocked and amazed.

$1799.95.

If you're not used to comparing Euro/British prices with U.S. prices, here's a general rule of thumb: U.S. price will be close to 1-to-1 in terms of number, not currency value. So if a lens is £1000, believe it or not it's usually around $1000 in the States. Weird, I know, but that's how it is.

An hour late beats not showing up at all, I guess. :rolleyes:

Oh, I didn't know there was a time limit to the truth :lol: Nevermind that my original comment about the price already made the point that the lens would not be as expensive in the States as you thought it would be and my follow-up comment only served to confirm that fact. Keep on rolling them eyes though, if it makes you feel better :)

Ummm... I just looked at the D7000at DpReview finally (back from work). It's wicked. 9 cross type, raw/jpg writable across cards, near or at 100% viewfinder!

Wow Nikon.

I was planning on getting this but I did a 180 and bought an Olympus Pen. Just not enough over the 7D to justify it so I went with something more portable to compliment my 7D.

In football terms, you are like that all-too-common scrub LB that runs in to jump on a pile of players 5 seconds after the whistle is blown and the play is dead...and then you are the last one standing there jawing at the RB, trying to force your way onto somebody's highlight reel...yeah, I know yer game, bud...

Actually I made the initial tackle, my teammates piled on, and I'm here at the bottom of the pile with you kicking you in the groin by accident while trying to get up :) Sorry, I know it's no fun to have somebody lay it on after the point has been made. I didn't see that somebody had already replied to further explain my initial comment, otherwise I wouldn't have piled on.

But back to the D7000--alotta camera for $1200. Nikon again proves that you can cram a bunch of awesome features into a pricepoint that too many Canon fans seem to think impossible.

You guys should meet at the flagpole after 4th period and settle this like proper 8th graders.

I switched from Canon to Nikon. Nikon still has a lot of work to do to catch up to Canon in the prime department.


I suck at Photoshop.

I'm seriously considering the D7000 as a "telephoto" body, because it will be light and easy to bring with me on trips (along with my D3s)... I'll probably wait till the D400 comes out though. That will probably be better than a 1DIV.

You were planning on getting the D7000 and decided not enough over the 7D but instead got the Oly Pen. All this before the camera even came out?
