I'll wait for the refurbs.

They'll be a reasonable $58.99

Funny how with every Canon release, Nikon just seems like the path to take...(I know, I know another on the fence photographer).

Switch. You won't regret it. I know I certainly don't.

No kidding. All of a sudden Zeiss glass doesn't seem all that bad. :shock:


This makes me very worried about the 100-400 II when it finally comes. $3000? $3500?

The prices you posted wouldn't surprise me one bit.

Seems fitting that these announcements come right before election day. "I'm moving to Canada/Nikon!"

Is it as easy to find good deals on Nikon stuff? I've gotten spoiled with Canon Direct's constant refurb discounts, and a pretty darn good used market on this forum.

Sadly, it's felt like this for 5 years now. This latest round of announcements achieved a new level of WTF. So many new lenses, so little excitement.

I shot Canon for 4 years before switching and I think it's equally easy to find deals on both sides, especially if you look on forums. If I told you how much I paid for some of my Nikon glass, you probably wouldn't believe me.

I take that back, the flash update was stellar. So they haven't all been missed swings.

The 600EX is indeed a very nice flash.

I have a question about this lens ability to use it as a macro. would this be a substantial to a 100L? if it so or even close. I think some people will be interested in it(even myself) . its like killing 2 birds with 1 stone for the people who needs standard zoom with macro ability.

DPReview on it's Macro mode: http://www.dpreview.co​m …n-ef-24-70mm-f4l-is-usm/2 (external link)

This all looks great in paper, but in practice things are a little more complicated, because the working distance in macro mode ends up being only about 3cm / 1.2" from the front of the lens to the subject. At this point, you're shooting an image area of about 51mm x 34mm (2" x 1.3") using a lens with a front diameter of 83mm (3.3"), which might make lighting your subject relatively difficult.

" The EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM has a trick - a special macro mode that allows extra-close focusing, with a pretty impressive maximum magnification of 0.7x."

Why is the 24-70 f4 more expensive than the 24-105 f4? This doesn't make sense at all

I am going to assume better optics ( like the 70-300L ), smaller design, better IS and macro. Its to high, just like the new 24 and 28 primes.

Introductory pricing is always very high on new lenses. I think The 24-105 was about $1500 when it was introduced back in 2005.

I expect the 24-70mm 4.0 will eventually end up being very similar in price to the 24-105.

yup. there will be white-box ones (ripped from the 6D kit) everywhere to drive the price down even more.
