Now How Can I Get One, or Two?

Are you in the know, or did you have them pre ordered?

Pre order

I preordered them about 3-weeks ago and received the shipping tracking number last night. I'll post some info as soon as they are in my hands.

Jonas, did you get the new firmware on an SD card with the lens? Or do we dumb "swedes" still need to see the authorised Canon repair center to do the installation? Hope your new lens is fine! /Johan

ironing board Res chart

Here is my first test on a res chart. I had to run home from my office to see the new 6x zoom. So I printed out a a res-chart and I had our ironing board as tripod. As you know the EVF on the XL H1 is not the best, so had a bit on the wall as well... But as you can see, nice resolution at the corners. A little bit of CA (purple fringe), but noticable less then the 20x lens (or what do you say?). When just playing around, I get feel that the lens has a really nice low barrel distortion.

PS. I had to fold the test chart, you may see a slight "bend" at the center. DS.

Jonas, thanks for posting. If it wouldn't be too much trouble, could you do these again with a couple of adjustments:
- verify that a back focus has been done on the lens
- frame using on-screen monitor (eg capture window) so it isn't overscanned
- label the picture with the lens used or put the lens used somewhere in the file name

Again, thanks for taking the time -- lots of people will be very interested in this lens!

It already is (at least in the USA). I received ours with a 6X Monday.
