Hi, This canon lens: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/search?Ntt=Canon+15-85&N=0&InitialSearch=yes is $200 more expensive than this very similar lens: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/545654-GREY/Nikon_2178_16_85mm_f_3_5_5_6G_ED_VR.html But WHY ??? If they are almost, if not the same thing !!! Isn't a bad move from Canon to introduce a lens with a more expensive price than Nikon, (that is already in the market) ?? In advance, thank you for your comments, igmolinav.
