| Re: New Canon 35mm F2 IS and 24-70mm f/4L IS! |
Canon Rumors has a very good discussion on the 24-70 versus 24-105 4.0
They see the 24-70 as a kit lens for the 6D, so the $800+- net pricing sounds more realistic to compete with the Nikon D600 at under $3,000 total ($2,700 on the Nikon now.)
That makes more sense, too, as a parallel to the 70-200 2.8, 2.8 IS, 4.0, 4.0 IS market positioning.
I assume that the 35 2.0 will also settle into the $600+ range that we have seen the 24 and 28 at after a few months. That is quite a nice set on wide angle primes.
I remember just 3 years back - or less - that was a complaint that everyone had about Canon wide's. I have to say they stepped up to the plate pretty well on that one.
