Is the lens cheaper in Hongkong? Just curious. How about warranty? Thank you.
£1,070/$1,675 - so, for sure, even with the current rebates it was cheaper. As for Wty, it's from an Authorised Dealer, so standard HK Wty, not international. However, if there's a problem I can get it fixed in either UK/US for a fee, & if I'm honest, in all the years I've been playing at photography ive not had a faulty Canon lense...
Now I've said it...lol...

This is the first lens in that range I have owned that did not have IS and I was really worried about it. I have not even noticed it does not have it.
Hopefully I'll find the same, I'm not worried at this point

I'm old and my hands are getting shaky. After working on my technique and holding style, I've not thought of it very often. The IQ on this lens is just incredible!
I'm looking forward to finding out just how good the IQ is

Congrats! Since I have this lens it almost lives on my camera, except when I need longer or shorter focale. I got rid of everything in the 24-70 range except the 40 pancake. I've done exactly 98% of my honeymoon trip with it. So versatile it's not even funny
Regarding IS, with the high ISO qualities of the 6D I can manage to do handheld landscapes at night and still get pretty good results, so I'm happy about it. It would be practical to have IS, at least to reduce the ISO, but I can live without.
No plans to offload any of my primes yet...I like the fact that they're between 1.4 & 1.2 & love em, this just provides more versatility & hopefully will be a great travel lense
