If you want to be orthographically correct, it’s got to read ‘Motorrad’. ;)

samhain: The camera is pretty cool....but Lol @ those lenses! Woah, a slow-ass 18-55mm kit zoom, where do I pre-order?!? :)
Seriously, they should've took a page from the Fuji lens playbook.
And how does 22mm=35mm focal length on aps-c?
Shouldn't that read 33mm?

No. The Canon crop factor is not 1.5×, but 1.6×.

GradyPhilpott: "If is is a DX lens, then using it on a DX-format camera will give 18-300mm, ie no magnification."

Not true. The range is given in 35mm terms and the crop factor must be calculated to gain the proper figures.

It seems crazy, but that's the way it is.

I'm sure someone can explain it more clearly, but that's the fact.

Simple: Focal length × crop factor = field of view equivalent on FX/35mm film. So: 18-300 × 1.5 = 27-450mm you would need to get the same field of view on FX or 35mm film.

The A-Team: What's wrong with using a $599 lens as an everyday lens? I'm sure there are millions of full frame shooters using 50mm 1.4s (less than $500) as their "everyday lens", myself included...

Looks like a great option for any full frame user who wants an affordable walk-around. Not to mention the old 24-85s for both Canon are Nikon are classics. An update with VR is even better.

I’ve even seen the D800 used with a cheapo-plastico AF 28-80mm f/3.3-5.6 G film kit lens that today costs almost nothing. What counts is what you get out of your equipment.

Does this effectively mean that the light source must be within the fram (unless obstructed by an object)?
