Canon EF-S 35mm f2.8 IS STM Macro coming soon.
Maybe I shouldn't name names but I happened to glance at Petapixel's little demo of the lens being used on a diamond ring with and without using the built in lights.  Well, yeah, we get what the lights are for, but I couldn't believe all of the sarcasm and criticism of the lens.  Now, it may be some time before I get my hands on one, but how can you complain if this lens comes even close to the quality of Canon's other macros, and at this price point? 


I was a little afraid I would be lamb-basted for my unabashed enthusiasm for this lens w/o actually having any experience with it.  My concern is not with the working distance, BTW, I just with manufacturers would give you all of the pertinent specs for their products.  It's nothing unexpected, and I didn't bother to see if the hood comes with the lens or not.  I shouldn't have to!  With a lens like this, I know from experience that you want to have the hood to protect the front of the lens from collisions.  I did see that the sell an optional lens cap that will fit both on the hood, and and the lens.  I know Canon does not normally hand out hoods with their non-L lenses, but this is a special case since the lens is not fully functional with out the hood, so maybe the do include the hood...then make up for it by selling you the special cap!


But that's just a little griping.  I am totally hoping to get my hands on one!
