Not really. I believe it has stalled people's decision from moving to the Tamron. Just think of the noise we would be hearing if Tamron had their lens available cheaper than the existing Canon 24-70 mk1, having better image quality and with IS...and Canon had nothing new in the pipeline.

I believe Canon got wind of the Tamron lens and had to pre-announce well knowing they could not deliver for another 9 months.

In that case, i look forward to the announcement of a 10-2000mm F1.0L IS that weights 500g. Announced 2012, shipping 2050 when technology catches up. I don't believe announcing a product and then not being able to ship it helps. Lets compare the IQ of the Tamron and the Mk2 - oh wait we can't cos the Mk2 does not exist in a meaningful way.

Those people who are waiting would, on the whole, have waited anyway. Those who were minded to look for the best available lens will buy the Tamron - because it's available!! And what constitutes a reasonable timeframe between announcement and product ship - the 1DX saga (i'm still waiting despite ordering on the 19th Oct 2011) is simply outrageous. The fact is that Canon come across as being amateur and cynical in announcing a product and then continually slipping the date when it can be purchased.

I personally think Canon made two announcements that were in the final stages and were never going to be ready in time. The 1DX was announced early because of the Nikon D4 and the 24-70 was announced early because of the Tamron 24-70 IS.

Thats exactly what I've been saying. Competition has forced their hand.

On dpreview there was a thread saying that a French magazine had tested one already. Does anyone know how much it's going to cost?

While browsing the local CL ad I saw a 24-70 for $1100.... Hmmmm good price wonder if something is wrong with it. So I opened the ad, and the owner claims he's selling it because he just got the mk2. What!

This might mean something, might not... But in Popular Photography where they did the Canon MK3 vs Nikon D800 test, the Canon lens used in at least one of the photos was the 24-70 MK2. So they've obviously got some rolling off a line somewhere.

This is encouraging but my local shop says that as far as they know, nothing coming until at least end of september:cry:

I've just read a comparison between 6 different mid-range zooms including Tamron, Sigma, Nikon and Canon in this weeks Amateur Photographer. Included was the original EF 24-70L and the new mk2. The testing was sketchy to say the least and the conclusions very uncritical, but it did say that although the mk2 is an improvement, its not worth exchanging the original to get it.

I did not like the approach the article took. It seemed to have a preplanned conclusion that the "third-party" lenses were very good and actual test results were not going to sway that. I do hope we see more unbiassed tests before the lens hits the marketplace.
