I have been waiting for this lens for MONTHS! This is a super wide lens and I cannot wait to put it on my camera and test it out. We receive reward points at work for various contests and performance. I have been saving my points for a YEAR for this freakin lens. Seriously. I did go with a 3rd party lens (Sigma) and not the Canon because I didn't have enough points. I have read a lot of reviews on the camera and for the most part it received really good reviews. I can return the lens if i don't like it, so I thought it was worth it. Stay tuned for pictures with the new lens.
