Just had an email through from calumet about the new canon macro lens with inbuilt light

https://www.calphoto.co.uk/product/Canon-EF-S-35mm-f/2.8-Macro-IS-STM-Lens/321-138A

maybe a late April fools?

I thought IS on macro lenses was a waste of time until I got one, going to keep an eye out on this one and see what the reviews are like and maybe pick one up when the price drops a bit, you cant have too many macro lens can you? [angel]

I suppose with the lens being short, the light would have to be fairly weak.
