Hi, At the moment I have a Nikon camera. I was looking at a lens like this one: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/300490-GREY/Nikon_2147_17_55mm_f_2_8G_ED_IF_AF_S.html Unavailable and around $400 more expensive than Canon's similar lens: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/425812-USA/Canon_1242B002AA_EF_S_17_55mm_f_2_8_IS.html I had previously seen a similar issue between the brands, being Canon more expensive than Nikon. I just think it is the way it is. Kind regards, igmolinav : ) !!!
