Well USD50 would currently seem pretty amazing, comparing with what they appear to be going for on ebay:

(Went for 157GBP)

(Currently at USD280)

Sorry about the page width, but there doesn't appear to be a 'link' button in the create/edit post toolbar and I'm to sleepy to remember the html.

Blame it on my other lens. :?

And as a note, I took my beercan with me camping, and being in Alaska, there were all sorts of things I took pictures. Everything turned out well, but the slow auto-focus hurt me when I was trying to take a picture of some black and grizzly bears. I really wish it was faster then...but that's the breaks.

I'm sorry to here that the Beercan's autofocus wasn't fast enough for what you were doing. Were you shooting continuous with continuous AF?

As I've said, I shoot at equestrian events, shooting continuous with continuous AF,and have had good luck with the speed of the autofocus ofmy Beercan.
