Has anyone seen the hood design for the new Canon 24-70 II? I have yet to see a picture of it. I hope it's stationary like the old one.

Tom, the press photo of the lens shows it in a 'retracted' position at 24mm...so it must extend to zoom out to 70mm in a conventional design. Hence I don't think it will have the same hood design.

That's disappointing. I love the current hood design.

+1...While I don't own the current 24-70, It does have the perfect hood design for a zoom. All zoom lenses should have that zoom/hood design (IMHO). I guess there are design difficulties in using that type of zoom/hood but I sure wish my 24-105 had that design!

Are there any photos of the new 24-70 II with the hood on it? I can't seem to find one anywhere.

Not as far as I have seen either. But I don't know what your expecting to see. It will look like a slightly bigger 24-105 with hood.
The hood mounts to the front of the lens in the conventional way and the lens extends when zoomed.

Best images I've seen of the lens are on TDP

Seems the front extends when zoom to 70mm.

Let's make a ps simulation :

'cept it still says 24mm when at 70mm

Personally I'd be thrilled to have a fraction of these PS skills. I'd start inventing my own cameras and lenses right away!

I wonder how long it will be before that image is round all the other sites to prove that it still reverse zooms?

Very good ps work .

Good video, but the audio was terrible; it was so garbled that I couldn't understand a word.
He might as well have been speaking Dutch for all I could get out of it.

And they still get reamed on the price. Higher absolute number, plus the exchange rate - may almost be worth it to fly from the Netherlands to NY and buy it here!

Perhaps I'm the only fan of the new hood. I found the old one to be too large.

Thanks for that video Dolina.

Hopefully the the street price will be lower

70-200/2.8 IS II
B&H : $ 2199
Foto Konijnenberg 2099 ( but that still is $ 2780 at the current exchange rate )

From the information we now know it seems to me the old - big - hood just must be better. But maybe the lens is so well corrected optically that this smaller hood will be enough. Only sample full-res pictures would help to decide.

I know; I was making a little joke. A poor attempt at humor, since it didn't seem to come across. If it had been a Russian reviewer I might have said dat is Russisch voor mij.
