    Why must everything in photography seem to cost £100s rather than £10s -- makes saving so difficult!

    in fact, £1000s are not uncommon either.

    It was always expensive, unfortunately

    yah true its never cheap -- but still........

    I am not earning much at the moment (only a student) so I can only think in £100s currently - budgeting for £1000s is not practical!

    I know, I only wanted to point out that 100s are not the end of the pain scale ;)

    true - but top end lenses don't tend to lower much - and I am one of those who likes new things :)
    so its up for long saving :)
    worst thing will be if canon change their whole lens lineup )knowing my luck they will do it a day after I order the final lens!
