конечно, "чувак" (<-new word my wife taught me, ха-ха ). It just seemed an odd happenstance that one could either buy a calculator for a discounted lens, or buy a camera, for the same discounted lens. It's almost like airline industry pricing! Wholly inscrutable to the "incognoscenti".

The calculator may be handy as well. And a lot cheaper than the camera.

What a bizarre combo. Not to distract anyone from Adorama's very enticing offer, but I also see at B&H, if you buy that lens with a 6D, you'll get the lens for $298 and the body for $1,749.

Well, if Fred's buying it for his daughter I'd say it must be a good lens, just saying...

The review on this site, pretty good at 8.9 out of 10.

I wondered if this might be a sort of Trojan Horse, but on the other hand, one shouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth should he?

Got it 2 days ago. Nicer lens than I expected even after reading the reviews on it here. Definitely a steal at that price.

It's a keeper. Just put it through a couple of, around the house, real life, tests and I see no issues what so ever....

ps - the calculator isn't too bad either

This one is proving to be a real keeper. I was expecting so-so performance, but so far I'm getting near L performance. Very good sharpness and contrast. Haven't tried for vignetting or distortion yet. A downside is a disturbingly quite audible sound and 'tremoring' during auto focus.

Haven't tried the freebies yet: calculator nor the lens cleaning tissues

I remember paying $400 for a simple 4 function calculator some decades ago. Now they seem to be just about disposable!!.
