That and there is a big 3rd party component that at this moment in time are making BETTER lenses than Canon ! (only) for example: Sigma 40mm F/1.4 is equivalent to Zeiss in the optics department {aside from that fact Canon does not make such a lens).

that statement makes me chuckle, Mitch Sigma and canon have a long way to make them comparable to zeiss lenses. i have 2 zeiss lenses, distagon 100mm f2 makro, and distagon 21mm wide angle lenses...and about 12-13 wonderful canon "L" lenses.

Check out the reviews and MTF comparison between the new 40mm F/1.4 Sigma DG ART and the comparable Zeiss. The rest of the Sigma F/1.4s are in the same ball park as the higher end Canons, but the 40 (and I think the 24 new Sigmas') are a step forward for from the earlier ART already really good series primes.

About 40% down the page is a comparison between the Sigma and the Zeiss.
