Just a heads up, I got an email from their stock notification today.

£799 though

That is expensive, but if you consider something like the 24-105 f4 L IS, this is a better wide end for a crop camera, and its a stop faster.

I'm going to hold out for the Tamron 17 -- 50mm f 2.8 which is due out this month, and will be a lot cheaper. The quality according to reports so far is that it's excellent, and compares most favorably with it's Canon counterpart :)

That's not a bad idea but it falls down heavily on its lack of IS which can make or break getting that shot or not. I appreciate the difference in cost would probably buy you your own rock to balance on but it's a question of convenience innit ? :-)

What I don't understnand is why anyone needs IS for this focal length range. It just doesn't make much sense to me. I would rather have the f stop over IS any day.
I will be interested to see how the Canon and Tamron compare though.


If you try to fail and succeed, what have you really done??

Low light (museums, which don't allow tripods or flash), shooting in/from a motor vehicle or on horseback just off the top of my head. If you have it you'll be able to use it when you need it. I wish the 24-70 had IS.

Available light photography. I have tried several portraits where the camera chose 1/4, 1/8 seconds and the like for estimated proper exposure. That puts me well under the recommended 1/focal length rule to avoid camera shake. This is my next lens, most likely. Hopefully soon.


Sweet new gear for a photogenic new year!
