One sales feature of the new lenses, probably both of them, will be autofocus optimized to the 5D III and 1Dx systems. Haven't we heard about that as a feature of the 24 IS and 28 IS—that they, along with the new 24-70 L II, will focus better than all the older stuff?
Given the choice between glass that squeezes out that last bit of sharpness when you hit the focus right, or glass that is almost as sharp, but absolutely nails focus every time, which do you prefer? These lenses could offer a major practical boost to image quality in real world shooting, and thereby justify a high price—a high price which will, fortunately, decline a bit over time.
