The new lens is going to be:
- sharper (it has two UD lenses)
- less distortion
- better IS
- and .7x magnification. It's darn near a macro lens.


According to the MTFs on Canon's web site, sharpness will be excellent - even wide open.
We can only hope, though, that distortion will be well-controlled.

The 24-105L has a quite pronounced barrel distortion at the wide end.
And even the new 24-70/2.8L II has a somewhat high distortion for such an expensive lens.

So, let's hope that the new 24-70/4L will be closer to the 24-70/2.8L II than to the 24-105L.
