Sounds as if you dont want to invest in 3rd party glass thats to bad your missing out.I see your point, but I am investing in my future lens kit, as you can see, so I am going to go big. Thanks for your opinions, and besides the price, what were your feelings on it.
Not picking on you for your choice. I tend to buy mostly Canon L glass because there is rarely a good copy bad copy issue and if there is they stand behind their product and make it right . I will buy third party when it fills a need that Canon doesn't cover like when I purchased a Tokina 11-16 f/2.8 because I wanted a fast lens and Canon didn't offer what I whas looking for. I wouldn't turn nose up at Sigma either if the need arised.
Canon and Nikon lenses are the gold standard in quality and backed with assurance to deliver expected quality. resale value is the other side of the equation in my book.
