Who likes paying
In reply to Greg Lavaty, Jul 18, 2012

I don't like paying. But wishing that up becomes down is pure folly.

The best thing is to not buy either of these lenses. Rent them. This is the advantage of the Canon ecosystem. There are pro shops in many places. Why spend more than $1,500 for a lens when you can rent it for $100?

Cheers!

LOL maybe you like paying a lot for your gear but I don’t. Having the TC built in only holds a slight utility for me so I am not willing to pay a huge premium for it. If the lens did turn out to be $11K I would seriously consider going with the Nikon and a body for less money.

I don’t believe Canon prices reflect actual cost of manufacture as much as they reflect what they think people will pay for the gear.
