Why? Is there something wrong with the present version? I've been thinking of replacing my 24-105 with the 24-70 since I recently acquired a 100mm Zeiss and don't really need the 71-105 part that much any more.

I recently sold my 24-70/2.8L because I use the 24-105L a lot more. If the rumoured 24-70/2.8L II has IS, I'll be an early adopter; otherwise, I'll be a not'dopter.

I really hope the 24-70 has IS. I just don't see why Canon would release a II version no IS... It's already one of the top lens they offer in the non-IS lineup.

I hope the new version is lighter & smaller. IS would be nice, but not a necessity for me.

I really hope the 24-70mm F2.8L II is lighter and zoom does not extended and litter smaller lens hood.

Not again....

I have both lenses. I can't really see much of an update to the 35L, outside of weather sealing and the new coating used on the 8-15L fisheye.

As for the 24-70, if they added IS it might be useful for some. I've been very happy without IS. I would guess the price would be roughly $2000 with IS - not worth the upgrade for me.

About time, since I just bought a 35L 2 days ago

Check out previous articles in that site and see how many times the v2 of 35L and 24-70L are rumored to be coming out.

were i still a canon shooter (and not owning the 35L), i'd be interested in any possible 35L announcement only inasmuch as i'd snap up a 35LMK1 as soon as a Mk2 were announced. new coatings and a different looking barrel design alone would be enough for canon to charge $1900 for a 35LII.

I just bought a 24-70 in August - that alone should be sufficient to merit CR3

Even without IS it will be $2000 anyway.

Without IS it would be pretty much an ordinary lens, regardless how much of an improvement the optical part would be. If Nikon felt necessary to put in a VR in their 16-35mm lens, it would be a major omission for Canon not to put in IS in a new 24-70mm lens, soon or later. Period.

The 24-70/2.8 has corner issues partly from field curvature, so you need to stop down more than always desirable for subjects such as landscapes. It is a bit better than the 24-105, especially at the wide end so I do prefer it. A new f/2.8 lens should have better performance at larger apertures (especially at the periphery), a little less CA, and improved internal construction for durability.

Yah, that sounds about right, I just bought both.

Btw, notice he's not taking comments? A broken clock is right twice a day

I'll be disappointed if a 24-70 Mk II lacks IS. In available light classrooms and music venues, I can get away with 1/40th on the 16-35/2.8, and sometimes even slower than that with the 70-200/2.8L IS II. But for the invaluable medium range, the 24-70/2.8 is often impossible for me to consistently handhold with acceptable results. The 24-105/4 is not fast enough to use indoors. It's always a crapshoot with subject motion at such slow shutter speeds anyway, but IS at least gets photographer motion out of the equation.

The 17-55/2.8 EF-S lens is a joy by comparison - and the only reason I keep a 7D around. It'd be nice to have a 24-70/2.8 with IS to use on the FF and APS-H camera bodies.

I bought mine in May so I don't understand why the new one isn't already out.
