Re: L lens build

i agree on all but the L lens build. i much prefer the better build

whether its worth the extra money is debatable...but it is worth it
to me.


I've been reading this forum for a couple of years now and I don't recall seeing many "mechanical lens failure" threads. Have you had some bad experiences with non-L lenses in this regard?...or is it a comfort level for just having a more robust lens for bad weather, etc? Do you have evidence that non-L lenses are more likely to go out of calibration?
I can be convinced....LOL..
