Some £60 cheaper than it has been for the last couple of months... well worth the money for this lovely bit of kit

I have the non IS version of this lens and it is, by far, the very best lens I have ever used .... the crystal clear optics are the finest.

If you take your photography seriously, then this is a must buy - together with the L Glass 50mm f1.8

a tad bit expensive for lens! rubbish deal, can pick out a really good slr with ready made lens for the price of these lens!

Dear Santa.....

No chance of me getting this any time soon, I've had to close my business and now my wife's job is at risk. Perhaps one day. Hopefully.

I got this lens in 2007 and it is by far worth every penny, it is amazing!! The IS version is essential though and worth the extra money.

Don't think I'd give £800 to a french company that has bad CS... Surely worth the £60 for peace of mind elsewhere?

Do you mean this 50mm L (f/1.2)?
EF 50mm f/1.2L USM
Or did you mean the non-L 50m f/1.8

Yes they're expensive... but you get what you pay for with lenses I'm afraid.

£60 is almost 10% cheaper than everywhere else... I highly doubt this is about to significantly cheaper than this, especially with Canon struggling after the Japanese disaster somewhat.

you sir, obviously don't have a clue what this lens does.

I bought this exact lens 3 years ago, and it is my second best lens (after my 135L). It's my best zoom lens, bar none. It really is that good.

Great IS too.

Awesome lens, and possibly the best zoom lens money can buy - of any brand.

It won't fit your Kodak anyway!

I've been waiting for this to drop for weeks after missing it on Amazon for £860 by mere hours. Not sure whether the £60 makes up for a non-UK company though...

Will check out reviews and return policy first.

Okay awesome... if you could post a link to the image stabilised telephoto lens that has better IQ than this and is less money then you will be saving me a few pennies...

I'll be waiting for the link.... probably waiting long enough for you to create yet another new account (_;)
