The 14mm and 85mm are for FF and APS-C. I wonder if there is any vignetting with the 14mm on FF though?

You're right, it does say FF and APS-C. I just saw the APS-C part.

How do you like the filter holder? There isn't a single place here that has it in stock.

I don't understand why a company with such an in-demand product can't ramp up production and keep the product in stock. You can't make money if you aren't selling a product. It may raise the reseller market price, but it doesn't help the OEM producer. I see Lee filter holders for sale on POTN every now and then, but they rarely last more than a few minutes.

Yes, they suck. They make great products, but cannot get their production ramped to keep up with the demand... bastards.

Cool. What GND filter do you use with it?

This is the first used lens I'm buying. So i'm a bit nervous about the real condition; even if the buyer stated it was clean and completely functionnal.

If its in the condition the seller said it was, I think this deal was a STEAL. If not; well somebody's gonna get it back

Good luck, that's supposed to be a wonderful lens. I consider my Canon 70-200mm one of my major and most versatile tools.

Now I will start looking (and saving) for a Nikkor 24-70 to complete my holy trinity. And somewhere after that or in between, I will take delivery of my D800.

This is gonna be an awesome photo season!

Just bought it. Couldnt find any review that says if it works fine in Canada; but I guess there's only one way to know!

Congrats.

Hopefully, photography will be paying the mortgage soon.
