I believe in free enterprise and I know there is nothing inherently wrong with this pricing but still doesn't stop me from being disappointed. I mean, $2299 is still the going street price right? I've been out of town the past week and I am not fully up on my DPR & Canon Rumors reading.

It is just a lens, I don't see what the big deal is. Do you have to have it right away? Just wait 1-2 more months and don't be like a lot of impulse buyers out there who make companies like beach camera rich. An average customer that a wedding photographer deals with (and I mean 99% of them), won't be able to tell the difference between this zoom lens shot at a FL vs. the old one or vs. one of the prime lenses. And this is relevant only if you actually get paid for photography. I'm sure you have some other lens that you can use in the meantime.

Most adults do not presume to give unsolicited life advice to other adults. But, it's one of the worst characteristics of this forum. Seems to draw the most immature folks on the 'net.
