Unless this 24-70 is just leaps and bounds better than the 24-105, I just don't get this. Nice to see an update to the 35, though.

I agree with the above -- why would you want to go from 24-105 to 24-70 @ F4? Seems like a step in the wrong direction? Unless maybe they will keep the 24-105 and just want a different kit lens for 5D & 6D bodies?

The 24-70 f4 will likely have better IQ, better IS and perhaps even better AF on the newer bodies in line with the other recent Canon lenses.

Thanks. I have a perfectly good 24-105 so the 24-70 seems redundant. The 35mm sounds interesting but not at that price. More pancake!

I'd be great with an optically redesigned 35 without IS for around $400. Might as well be an L minus lens (DO?) haha

I think a 24-70 f/4is is stupid. But at $1800, it's really stupid.

I was excited about the 35, as I have a non-is version and it is great! But at $900 count me out of upgrading.
