It's been a while since I got a new lens, I have been waiting to see what Canon announced this month. I was hoping for a fast wide angle zoom but all we got in that area was the 8-15mm f/4L fisheye. Love the range, not excited about the aperture or the fisheye part. So I decided it was time to bite the bullet and buy a good wide angle zoom. 16-35mm f/2.8L is on it's way to me (literally on the UPS truck right now), cross your fingers I can go pick it up tonight (it is in Harrisburg right now) so I can have it to play with on a little day trip I am taking tomorrow!
