Canon L Series Lenses

G'day all. poped into a camera shop the other day in Perth and bought myself a new 50mm lens and was talking to the assistant about the L series lenses and he told me to hold off buying any of them until May because Canon will be dropping the price of them drastically. Apparently they are dropping them to similar prices offered on the net.

So watch out and get a cheap lens next month.

Ah yes those L series lenses, you wont get better, however the 300 mm F/ 2.8 is still going to cost you nearly 6 grand on the net.
