  1. Don – I listened with interest your discussion on the rumored Canon long lenses. Canon has dabbled with the Diffraction Optics lenses in the past. There was a 70-300 f4.5 – 5.6 and a 400mm F4. The zoom was quite expensive and not very sharp – I own one. The non ‘L’ version was sharper in my opinion. The L non DO is a nice lens. The only advantage of the DO version is it’s compact size. The 400mm is well thought of and expensive (Approx $7000). I’m pretty sure that the these new rumored long lenses will be expensive.

    Change of subject – What’s the status of your new book on macro photography? Can I still order a copy?
