True - Nikon have finally bought their A game and I believe they have now surpassed Canons market share, at least in Japan. But this comes after 5 years of trailing a distant second...

Yeah i'd say Canon is still by miles the bigger market here, I sell at least 10 Canon accessories to every 1 nikon accessoy, in fact I sell more for Sony than I do Nikon.

Plus Canon have a huge customer base worldwide that will continue (mostly!) buying thier lenses. It would take Nikon a long time to catch up with the number of camera bodies in the market.

Good to see canon busy upgrading a lot of their lens. Still have the 24-70 and 100-400 to do which a lot of people want.
I would like to see a canon version of the nikon 14-24 F2.8 or F4 version would do me.

Just had a look at the Lifepixel tutorials for converting Nikon's to IR. Damn they look easy by comparison!

Would you pay the approx $4000 they would charge for it?

Either Canon or NIkon could make a good amount of money by releasing a 24-70 F2.8 IS/VR. Many people would upgrade... though I would probably hesitate for a bit given I just paid $3K for the 24-70.

Why rush when people like you are buiying the non IS one!

Actualy since it hasnt been done yet I'm guessing its a bit of a challenge to make or make ecconomicaly viable as yet.

This lens is like Santa Claus. I used to believe it would arrive one day, now I know better!
