Cosina 19-35mm f/3.5-4.5 MC lens for Canon just $100

The Cosina 19-35mm f/3.5-4.5 MC lens for the Canon mount is on special at Amazon, going for $100, and offered at this price by 3rd party seller "47th Street Photo". Additional shipping and handling of $9 applies to the order.

This is a full frame lens, so you can use it on your old 35mm film SLRs without any worries. Needless to say, don't expect a $100 lens to behave on a dSLR the same way as an L-series lens or an advanced lens created especially for digital SLRs with cropped sensors.

And when mounted on such a DSLR, the equivalent focal length will be around 30-54mm (give or take), so it won't be as wide angle as you think

. Needless to say this lens is not exactly an ideal match for the 1Ds Mark III or the 5D Mark I as the 35mm full frame DSLRs are much more demanding of their lenses, than the APS-C (EF-S) dSLRs such as the Digital Rebels.
