It's real, took a year to surface too so they've been working on that sucker a while.
Can't wait to upgrade mine, throw IS into it and I'll be able to off both my 24-105L's

Awesome, but doesn't look like it will add IS at all.

I do hope it has IS. Some people argue that IS is not very useful at such a short focal length but I used to have a 17-55 IS and I could take shots at much lower shutter speed than I can get away with on my 24-70.

I love my 24-70 but if the mkII has IS it will be getting traded in :)

70mm isn't that short on a crop camera. On my 1D4 it's about 95mm and I shoot at 1/60 a sec quite often. It stops me from having a crisis over taking the 24-105L (at 1 stop slower but 3 stop IS) or the 24-70 2.8.

I also hope it has IS. I feel IS or not is more related to the aperture size. Max F/2.8 lens should definitely need IS. Canon also has to fix the sample optical variation issue.

Except for the slight softness wide open at the 55-70mm focal range, there is little to complain about with the current 24-70L. I wouldn't upgrade without IS.

Has -anyone- found the actual patent info?

The number given does fit the US numbering scheme, but comes up as a ceramic hob... :-)

Assuming it's a Japanese patent - has anyone checked?


bye for now

Looks like a price drop for the current generation model is in order.

That is the perfect focal length for I.S.

A lot of people put telephoto lenses, i.e 100-400, 70-200 on tripods, so they are pretty stable. However, the 24-70, 24-105 focal lengths are used primarily hand held, so they actually need I.S. a lot more. JMHO.

Because those people don't know what they are talking about.. Period. IS should be on every lens that is for handheld

I have never once wished my 24-70 had IS and very, very rarely have issues with camera shake. Different strokes, I guess.
