  2. I doubt it's discontunued. The 50 1.4 has been OOS at B&H as well. Just an inventory fluctuation as I see it.

    When will it back?
     
  4. My magic 8-ball says "Soon".

    That's weird, when I asked mine when it will come back, it says "Maybe"
     
  6. Who knows? The Beast just might come back wearing a "VR" tag. I can't imagine why. But I'm sure some folks would appreciate it.

    Nikon stuff is constantly on back order. its certainly one of the top 3 reasons people switch to canon. its a shame. Nikon seems to be a company of people who really love photography and make what they want when they want it. canon just wants to make money and they make what consumers ask for.

    Does it really even need VR? I wouldn't doubt then doing it though so they can charge $400 more.
     

  9. If this happens, I'm glad I got mine early. I'd never need VR on this lens.

    28-70 2.8VR lens is called the "Beast". Beastly because of it's size with it's cluster of heavy grade elements. It's a beefy lens!

    It's popular among photographers because stopped down it can do so many things very right Portraits, automobile photography, landscapes, so many things. It also has a nice bokeh, which is the blurred background produced with a narrow depth of field. (photog 101)
     
  12. I can't imagine it doing too many things wrong. I've used it for sideline photography at football games. I've never gotten bad results from it. It's by far the sharpest zoom I've ever owned...although I've never owned the 17-55.

    points taken Mark, we could probably go on and on and on what all the Beast performs well at. It's a honey.

    thanks for clarifying.
    we have in stock in GTA at a couple big stores.

    better start diverting my MTB $ towards it.
     
  15. I was at BH in NY on Sunday. They said they were waiting on a container with many items. So...that is probably the answer.

  19. Funny . . . my "Beast" doesn't have VR. But, I'm just an amateur . . . and didn't know it was an option! :biggrin:
