Take note... there is apparently miscommunication here. Not our friend organizing the MO, but the book itself.

I just made a call, the new book is called Lens Work III, 4th Edition. Published Feb 2004. I'm going down to Canon SG to pop a look this afternoon, may be getting up to 3 copies....

So don't blur blur, thinking Lens Work IV is out.. it just isn't. All started with the somewhat inaccurate advertisement i saw on TVMobile... :D

thanks for the info, sehsuan!

btw, a CSer informed me that you can buy the book from funan centre at $20. since there's no confirmation that i can secure a discount, i think to be fair, pls let me know if you wish to get the book yourself? its okie with me. ;)

the timing still remains. MO will close by tomorrow 2200H. cheers!

just looked through the book today. no major revision to it, just added the EFS 18-55, EF 55-200, EF 28-300 L IS, EF 70-300 DO IS... and one more low end lens. not worth getting this book if you already have Lens Work III 1st Edition :)

Are the photos taken by the same lens featured in EF Lens Work III the same as before? Or different pics?

as far as i remember, all are same (maybe 1 different, at most). 1200 still has the sunset pic etc...

the new lenses' photos are seemingly shot in turkey, more like snapshots than a "what this lens can do" kind of photo. 85mm lenses have that same nice portrait of the girl in a green cardigan.

still waiting for confirmation by bobo, Tan Elizabeth and daddy....
:think:

caseytan & madmacs - no problem. hope to meet u guys on some shoot soon! :D

seshuan - thanks for the clarification! i really had not much time to go and browse the book.

CSers, based on wat seshuan has said, pls let me know if u wish to cancel ur orders? if the orders dropped below 5 persons, i think i'll not go ahead with the MO since it won't be worth the effort for me to drive all the way to Keppel. hope u'll understand.

MO closes by tonite 2200H, or once i've received 15 orders, whichever comes first. ;)

:think:

fyi - payment details will be confirmed tonite. as of time of this update, canon singapore hasn't got back to me whether we get a discount or not. so, i dun want to collect $$$ then have to go thru the hassle of refunding the difference.... unless u all dun mind paying my petrol! :devil:
