    figured the rebate was expiring & that coupon won't last long either. Gonna sell the 17-85mm IS lens if anyone is interested.

    i know, but the price ($984) was just too good. local shop wants over $1100 for it plus tax.

    i was planning on getting some sort of focusing screen/sheet/? to test it out the day I get it, and call B&H back pronto if it's soft. any recommendations on what to do?

    damn you got a great deal on that baby


    that was one of the first lens i bought and it stays on the body the most out of all the lens i have

    the least time on the body probably is the 70-200


    but i did just get the 16-35 so i can't wait for that to arrive:

    Congrats man, just parted ways with mine for the 35mm f/1.4L . It was an excellent piece of glass and the quality control on this lens isn't as bad as it comes across on the net.

    those are really the only reasons i bought it. most of the reviews i read said that they use this lens most of the time, and they love it. and the price was fantastic.

    i think the QC issues (at least in what i read) seemed to be for the lenses that were purchased years ago. :x:

    the 17-85 is great, and the IS is a blast. kinda wish this had IS too, but oh well.

    the 17-85 will be just fine for what you're going to do for a while, promise.
