I've been wanting to buy this lens for a while and I think now may be the time. I want a portrait lens (already own Canon 17-55 and 10-22) for a crop body and have been debating to get a 85 f1.8 or not for now... Eventually I would want to get the new 70-200 II (have used it a couple of times for weddings and other events) but I'm just wondering is now a good time or not. This lens is currently selling at $2,199 (Price includes -$300 off instant savings from Canon, offer ends Sep 29, 2012) in most places I trust— Amazon, Adorama, BH Photo. Is that a fair price or should I wait a little longer for a better price?
Ideally I would like to have this lens soon because I have a few gigs coming up, but if anyone knows a better price, please share. I would really appreciate it.
