Hey, at least you didn't have to use a hack-saw like the guys who modded the 18-55 kit lens to fit on their 10d's:lol:

and why you go far? instead of using EF-s 17-55 on this camera i can use EF 17-40and not have any vignetting at all, or if i want little wider 1mm then 16-35 all the way, i can use even my sigma 12-24 without vignetting, so there are many choice than using EF-s for 1-series or FF.


do you use the 16-35 with the IS turned on or off? how is the performance of the 17-40 at 2.8?

I say good for you being curious, it's your equipment, do what you want with it and enjoy it.

hahaha, that's why we all have to petition canon to make a 17-105mm f/2.8L IS. :D

So i pray for that Canon will listen to my mind and produce EF 15-70mm f2.0 IS ;-)a

And why i bother myself on using IS on those ultra wide lenses, i even prefer 24-70 over 24-105, i don't need IS in most of the time, and if i want 17-55mm f2.8 IS, then its equivalent on full frame is 27.2-88, so 24-105 is this range except it is f4, will Canon produce that perfect lens you think?

Wish if Canon made a zoom lens for full frame say 10-100mm f2.8 IS.

would be possible, would cost about $25000, and weight about 70kg :)

WOW, one of those old threads i was posting on, i can't remember what i was thinking that time, LOL.

Anyway, i don't really need that big focal length lens, i am sure i can't afford a lens that go from 10-100 or even 20-200 whether it is good enough or not, Sigma has 50-500 and it is like not that very excellent one, and their 200-500 is costing ~$26000, funny that i do have that money, but i will never put it on one lens, in fact i dumped more than that for just one camera, H3DII-39 before i replace it for H4D-60 and it hits about $42k

yeah, it would be nice if canon made a standard zoom EF lens with IS for full frame bodies.

Do I detect the faintest whiff of sarcasm? Must be. I am pretty sure both the 24-105 f/4L IS USM 24-70 f/4L IS USM have IS.
