I am currently looking at lenses for rental/purchase over the coming months. I am quiet fond of the Canon HJ11/HJ21 pair that we often see (or I do anyway), but I am curious about the HJ8x5.5 that they also sell. It's range is entirely covered by the HJ11, and the price seems fairly similar as far as I can tell.
All I can gleam from Canon's official literature is that it doesn't lose it's stop as much when you've zoomed in (drops from T2.1 to T2.2, instead of T2.7). This seems to go against the idea of it being a lower-cost lens, but I'm still confused.
Anyone know the story here?
