Dang, this complicates things! I was set to pull the trigger on the excellent but expensive 35mm f/2 IS, but now I'm stuck... Paralysis by analysis!

Dang indeed, i purchased this great lens a couple months back at 589.00, and thought it to be a great value at that price. It does make me wonder why the 24mm f2.8 IS, and the 35mm f2 IS have not seen similar downward pricing trands. Is 28mm just a bastard focal length no one wants, and Canon is having to blow them out?

Whatever the answer, at this price, i have a feeling a lot of these will get swept up today.

This is probably about what the lens should cost.

Their website says 37 sold in the last hour. Snapsy: I bought this about 6 weeks ago, due to your post then. Love it! Thank you.

Since this is not a L lens, Canon charges extra for the plastic shade, about $50. Instead, buy it here:

That's what I did.

Bought the 28 IS. Thanks for the heads up Snapsy!

As for the hood, the seller in the link above also has an ebay store, where the hood is $9.29 with Free Shipping. Through Amazon, it's $13.57 + about $5 shipping.

That's what the lens should retail for normally and the 35 f/2 IS shouldn't be much dearer either.

Hey Snapsy, thanks! I just picked one up. It will fit well with the 6d I bought this morning on a great deal from Buydig.

That's a killer price, it's quite tempting even tho I picked up the 28 f1.8 late last year. I'll echo the 6D comment, with IS the new 28 would be a nice setup...sure hope the new 24 or 35 come down in price

I'd totally go for a 35/2 IS in this price range, though it reminds me that I need to sell my 24/2.8 IS soon. It just doesn't get enough use on the 6D, but was indispensable on the 60D.

Yup, I find 24mm too wide on FF for other than landscape. For general street use I prefer 28mm+ and 30-35mm would be ideal.
