Re: Why kid ourselves? We got a bargain at Canon's expense

What I find strange is the pricing of the 11-22 at $399 (Canon Canada MSRP). That is hundreds less than NEX and m43 ultra-wide zooms, and that is a list price on a new product.

I like to shoot wide so I pay attention to UWAs. Good UWAs are not cheap. The only one that's reasonable is the EF 17-40 but IQ is average. At one point I even thought about getting the Nikon 14-24 but it was $2k and I find it hard to swallow. Not to mention needing an adaptor and losing AF.

When I saw that the MSRP of the 11-22 was $400, with IS, I did not hesitate paying full retail and I pre-ordered, which I've never done before. I would consider it reasonable at $600-$700. It is a steal at $400.
