About to move in on this lens! Looks like I'm going to grab a new one, I know that seems silly with all the good deals on a used one, but my wife talked me into it (I know right?). Also there is a rebate currently available which gets it down to $699, so I'm good w that.

BTW, I thought briefly about waiting for the 16-35 F4 IS, but I looked at the photos in that thread and then looked at the photos in this thread, and I was more wow'ed with the ones in here :D

I know it's because the 16-35 is young and there are less people shooting with it, but just sayin you guys have some great shots in here! Keep it up.

Enjoy it! This is definitely my "funnest" lens to use.

There are copies gong for $444 in V condition right now at adorama, FYI. From my experience, they rate their used stuff real conservatively.

To late I already bought the new one.

It's only money right? Anyhow when the wife tells me that I should spend more money on camera stuff. It's best not to fight against that :D

Hmm maybe it's a trap? Yeah it's most definitely a trap...

I did the same thing, I bought mine new when there were good rebates, and I kinda just wanted one that was "mine"....and I love it, I use it a lot, sometimes just go out with it and a body, no other lenses.

Looks great.

My lens arrives today, I've unpacked it. Very pleased with the size and weight.

Not sure when I'll be able to take anything worthy of sharing. I mainly wanted to have it before my cruise in May, was just planning to rent this or the 16-35, but I bought one instead.

Looking forward using the lens... BTW anyone use the lens for video? I use to have a sigma 8-16 for my 60D and I used it for time lapses and video, I like wide angle videos.

Well, I just bought one from the FS section! Been wanting to try one for a long time. If I make anything worth a darn I'll be sure to share. In the meantime keep up the awesome shots!

Man you were in the market for this lens for a long time! I was reading some of the older archives posts on this lens from like 2012 and you were talking about getting one eventually :D

I'm glad you finally did, look forward to your photos.

I honestly don't use this lens much, but it helped me create one of my favorite images to date tonight!
