Re: Why no APS-C equiv. to EF 24-70/2.8? (same 'dilemma')

Well ... I'm not really sure what you're trying to get at. Of course there are not exact equivalents of all lenses in both directions ...

(And when I wrote equivalent in the thread title I didn't mean it in the exact, spec for spec way.)

Don't you think it is strange there is no f/2.8 standard zoom with IS for full frame?

hmmm... if you work, how difficult can either be, really? and if not, why ask...?

What's with the attitude? I asked because I was curious how other people think about this.
