Your soap box is burning. he he

It's unfortunate this stuff costs so much, but think about those starving executives at Canon. They need to tip their caddies, and schmooze it up. Where is that money going to come from, if not from the consumer? I would also imagine that running CPS costs them quite a bit. The measly membership fee doesn't cover it. And then there is the world wide camera division. The list goes on.

Sigma and Tamron exist to relieve the pain of expensive Canon AF lenses. I don't think Canon can afford to sell lenses at the price point those little companies can. Just the way it is.

I'm not sure I would rally behind this evil Canon concept even if I was going to buy that lens. I guess in a way I am making a stand, because I sort of decided to forget about it for the time being.

Anywho, enjoy your weekend
