I've seen it at a more realistic price of around £960 (GBP) although I think that's far too much IMO. I know the 24-105 f4L IS isn't the best lens Canon has ever produced but I can't see why the 24-70 is almost twice the price for less reach. OK, I know the 24-70 is newer but is it really twice as good IQ wise as the 24-105, I don't think it will be. I've got a Sigma 24-70 f2.8 HSM and I'm really pleased with the results from that, so much so that my 24-105 f4L has been almost redundant since I got it and that was only about half the price of the new 24-70 f4L IS.

Hi the best I saw it for was about £1074 where was it you saw?

Also did you compare the Tamron with the Sigma before buying..

I really need a 24-70 F2.8 ii but the Canon price is too much for what it is, and no IS? :(
I think it with IS should be about £1500 to £1600 .
Or more correctly that's what it needs to be to tempt me out to play!
Oh to be rich enough to say that's great lets get it!

I'm in the same boat with the 24-70mm 2.8 II..... I really want that lens but the lack of IS and it's ridiculous price Will have me sitting on the sidelines with you.

Yeah the idea of a grey 24-105 f4 is USM at £570 from HDE seems to look better as an interim solution - but the problem with those and me is they tend to be permanent.
As its £500 more for the f4 that's almost 2x the price is it 2x the quality especially is you are a crop user my logic is take then24- 105'
Pretend in wont work out side 40 - 70 and how good is it in the middle sector, especially on the 7d.?

Everything new has a higher premium, give it some time and these lenses will come down a bit.
