Has it actually been confirmed that there is no IS? I take what I read on CR with a stiff pinch of salt.

Nothing is confirmed, and I agree that taking stuff from CR lightly is a good idea. That said the photo does seem legit and in line with recent Canon lens releases. While there is no way to verify whether or not it has IS, it would be a departure for Canon to add IS to the lens and not mark it somewhere on the barrel.

But it's best to wait until they actually release the lens before the angry mobs start rioting. Might be too late for that though.

This is the "I'll settle for what I can get" mentality.

No. It's not. :rolleyes:

If I was the "I'll settle for what I can get" type, I'd own the current 24-70.

No IS, and 82mm filter?? Unless it's seriously sharper, I see no reason to upgrade

I'm really interested to see how much the IQ of the 24-70 can improve. To me it is a great standard zoom and quite honestly I'm not waiting for miracles.
Then again we have the example of 70-200 2.8 IS II in comparison with the other models so there's always room for improvement..
I'm on the side of those that don't eagerly wait for an IS version. I've 17-55 2.8 IS and I rarely had the need for IS. I know its advantages, but I also know how much it can raise the price.. And if I'm closer to the tele end of a standard zoom lens I always prefer to use my 70-200 anyway..
82 mm is another no go for me for many reasons but especially for filters..
It all will depend for me.. IS by itself is not a reason to upgrade especially if price will be close to 2K..
IS+noticeable increase in IQ well.. It will be another story.. ;)

Could an internal zoom work @ 24-70? It works for 70-200 and even at 200-400.

take this with a grain of salt because it was from canonrumors, but apparently there were several prototypes of the new 24-70, one of which was internal focusing. Apparently that was the biggest of the three and wasn't worth the increase in size and weight.

I'd expect it to be a lot better. When you compare it to Nikon's 24-70, you see where the Canon falls sadly short. Especially in the corners and in wide open contrast.

Corner performance is not an issue for me at all.. Maybe I have a great copy anyway..
Then again I've never used the equivalent Nikkor so that I can compare for myself..

The new FF standard:

Canon 16-35 F2.8 L II USM

Tamron 24-70 F2.8 VC USD

Canon 70-200 F2.8 L IS II USM

Nice job Canon. Epic fail leaving out IS. :D

I think your right----unless the canon has (is). My son has the tammy 17-50 with the iS and its lightyears ahead of the original. If that tammy is anything like the 17-50is,,,,,,look out. Especially if it comes in under 1K.

I dont care if it has 82mm. What I want is sharper more contrast images from the lens wideopen. Hopefully less people are seeing back focus wideopen when at the wide end of the lens (24mm).

Thing is the current 24-70L is good enough for print when shooting wideopen w/ avaialable light. The lens in a studio setting is rock solid.

Even though my 24-70L is now a stellar copy after calibration I find my 16-35Lmk2 to be more pleasing with more contrast. If the "new" brick adds more contrast to the files I'll love it regardless of having an 82mm filter requirment or if theres no IS.

82mm filter size? I'll pass.

So very true. No IS and no reverse-zoom make the original so much more tempting to me...

SchnellerGT wrote in post #13834224 (external link)
$1800-$1900? WTF?

What? That sounds about right. Look at the 70-200 2.8 IS vs the II.

Possibly could, but doesn't look like that to me (the barrel would be longer).

My moan is that it's yet more filters to spend money on, and carry about. Not a major moan, but still a gripe :)
