Just goes to show that with Canon, ANYTHING is possible if enough people
want it bad enough to pay the price.

The first thing they want is your name and address. I stopped at that

You do realise that this isn't an EOS mount lens, I hope?
It's video camera lens (for something like the Canon XL H1 HD), so it
probably can only cover a 2/3" CCD at best.

Canon should be totally ashamed of this (and some others too) HP got this basic and absolutely essential thing right in their little digicam that's cheap even for a P&S, so why can't Canon?!! Yes, I know, there's more to the Canon 20D, b Mike Henley Digital Photography 43 12-15-2004 05:21 PM
