Surprisingly, I actually ordered one myself - I didnt think I even cared about this announcement at first nor am I usually an early adopter. But, I recently picked up a 7D that Im not exactly "in love" with and since Im not a big fan of uber-thin DOF for family photos etc, Ill no longer need my 85 1.8 when I have this lens. That should soak up the majority of the cost.

Since Im primarily a landscape shooter, having this prime like IQ in a 24-70 zoom (my bread and butter focal lengths) is fantastic. The weight savings over the current one helps for hiking in and out and I dont need IS since most of my shooting is done off a tripod. Seems like a deal made in heaven for a guy like me.

BH wont charge my card until April so Ive got until then to re-consider and review the data/images released in the meantime - at least Im on the list today.

Well it better be for that price. Although I think the 70-200 2.8IS II is already too expensive for my wallet. I can't believe the price on the new 24-70 is so high and it doesn't even offer IS.

Is there a law against price collusion on used stuff?

If you are thinking of selling your MarkI, please list it for at LEAST 1500 dollars. ;-)a

Yaya!

COngrats that you have so much money at your disposal to blow.

I will wait for the Tamron reviews and then make a decision, hopefully when the street price of the II settles around $1900 or so (competitive with Nikon).

Whats your problem?

I preordered one too, you going to call me snobby?
The 24-70L is a workhorse lens that has stayed on my Camera 40% of the my wedding shoots. A new version comes out and you think people won't buy it?

This is "THE" lens that people work with each and every day along with the 70-200L II.

I don't get why People's knickers are in a knot from all this Nikon talk recently either.

Fact is, people should be buying Cameras for their Glass and now with the 24-70 and 70-200L Mark II's, it makes owning Canon even sweeter.

It's funny to me how people can make silly statements about how others spend their money.

Congrats on your new purchase and look forward to the reviews. I'll probably end up upgrading if the mark II is on par with the 70-200II.

That's a steep premium for the mark II to still lack IS.

I remember having the same heart-attack reaction to the price of the 70-200 2.8 mk II and ended up purchasing it for the wonderful IQ anyway. so personally I am not going to say I will not get this lens but I really wish it had IS!!!

I tend to appreciate people looking out for me and say somthing before I spend my money..... Though I can understand why some take it the wrong way... "Like, who are you to tell me how to spend my money?" lol

Cheers,

David

The price of it puzzles me, especially compared to the monster of a lens that the 70-200 II is - both are so close in price, yet one of them has an unbelievable IS system, it is build for war, absolutely indestructible, it has internal focus AND weather seal. How do you charge for a mid ranger as much?

I could be totally wrong here, but I think Canon is in a position to charge pretty much what they want. Thousands of copies of this lens are going to sell quickly at the retail price, and Canon is going to rake in the money. We all have our weaknesses and many are just going to gobble up this new lens... Hell, I would too, but am not willing to go into debt over it. I could take the money out of savings, but have other priorities.... Just be happy for the folks who get the first ones and share the pictures it produces... We are going to have some happy campers around here for some time to come!

now that you put it that way, it makes a lot of sense. I'm thinking that canon has already done it's analysis. To counter: This is what the market is willing to pay for this lens. The focal length is much more desirable to a 70-200mm.

it's a huge money maker for canon, and consumers left with the bill. Thankfully, tamron offers an alternative.
