$599 at B&H for just a few days (until March 6th).

A quick check seemed to say the $100 savings is available at other retailers too.


This lens was $699 just a 10 days ago, went to $650, then down again to $599. I have been looking at this lens for a while, and have not come across many (really zero) mentions of discounts and savings. It has been going for $575 to $600 used.


Finally, my gear buying indecisiveness pays off!

I really want to get this. IQ is great. It's big and heavy (I like that), and it takes no screw in filters (darn). All for $600!!!

i think when it launched it was going for around 800-850. This should be quite a deal. Hell, I can probably use it for a while and sell it for 50 bucks less if it doesn't suit me.

but yeah, the big front element is a bit of a pain. I've seen a youtube of a guy hand holding a GND Lee plate in front of it. Might give that a shot if I can't get what I want out of it. I'm planning to do some architectural stuff so probably won't be too necessary.

The crop equivalent dropped in price too. It's now $450:

Do I keep the 11-22mm for my M or sell it and buy the 16-28mm? Hmm...

I literally just received mine yesterday. I'm amazed at how sharp this is at 2.8. Pretty much all across the frame too.

I called Amazon and they wouldn't price match for me since I got it from a third party but fulfilled by Amazon. I am going to return the lens for another one at the lower price. Definitely a keeper.

Cool. Just grabbed one. I needed a FF equivalent to my EFS 10-22.

Good luck with the sale. Hate to say it, but it looks like the new price for this lens is 629.

I was finally able to get out and test my copy with more than just interior lighting, very happy with it.

Why don't any of these lenses (except the Canon 16-35) easily take filters. :(

I'd be all over this lens if it did.

This is an issue. Even with Lee filters you have to use a kludgy setup to mount filters. Or just hold them by hand.
