Interesting that Canon launch 24-70II with both 24/2.8IS and 28/2.8IS.

It's seems that Canon is shouting : Hey, if you want IS + f2.8 : Go primes !

Ok...the flatter the lines the sharper the lens is and if the lines are all at the top...the lens WILL cut your fingers...:)

the new 400L f/2.8 IS Mk II

QUOTED IMAGE

Thanks. I just googled it and have been reading up. That MTF chart is insane!

Can somebody actually tell me why Canon wouldn't put IS in this lens? It's not like they were looking to cut costs here.

Because Nikon didn't put IS on their 24-70

Not really.
The problem was the weight. The paint to put "IS" on the lens would take the weight of the lens above the marketing specs.

It might work in everyone's favor that Canon is selling the mk2 for 2300 dollars... How so? Think of all the gear heads on the search for perfect image quality.... Many will be selling the mk1 on Ebay, so we might get some good deals on a already fantastic lens, though a bit heavy :)

I'm not sure why people are going crazy over these new lenses. The primes are clearly for video use which is Canon's big push. The new 24-70 is aimed at professionals only so they can get whatever they want for it if it is on par with their latest 70-200's. Pros will either pony up for it or keep their old one. Either way it's not that big a deal. IS would have been nice but obviously they did testing and decided that it wasn't making their lens better. I know people saw test versions out there with IS and it was supposedly very bulky and heavy with that on there and Canon didn't like it. Even though the public wants it, it doesn't mean Canon will put something out that it doesn't think meets their standards and expectations. They could also come out with an IS version in a year and force people to buy all over again. Maybe they got George Lucas to help them market new products! Just resell the same thing over and over again by changing one little thing! Lol.

if tamron's is as good as v1, expect v1's price to tank, by a lot.

Are you talking about the 28-75 by Tamron?

Nikon, here I come!!!!.

Just kidding, for now. No IS in the 24-7-II, no buy. It's that simple for me. For those who say IS is not needed, maybe, but there are tons of us who want it. Even the Nikon 16-35 f/4 has IS (VR). Hmmm....

To some this will be worth it. Just like the 70-200 f/2.8 IS MkII.

Old at 24mm

New at 24mm.

[GIFS ARE NOT RENDERED IN QUOTES]

Old at 70mm

New at 70mm

That is a substantial improvement across the board. The lens looks flawless at F/8 and almost achieves that wide open. They increased contrast and resolving power plus it looks like the bokeh might even be improved as well.

Go through this:

http://www.luminous-landscape.com …s/understanding​-mtf.shtml (external link)

One of the areas of image quality that MTF can help determine is bokeh. This is a Japanese word used to describe the manner in which a lens reproduces the out of focus areas of an image. Some lenses are harsh in this regard, while others produce a much more pleasing out of focus image. This is where the meridonial and sagital lines come in, and as you'll recall are represented by the dotted and dashed lines. The closer these lines are to each other the more pleasing the bokeh of the lens. Fascinating, huh?

Yes, you are correct... I though Tamron already had something out he was talking about... But yes, I re-read what he wrote, and he is talking about the new Tamron. My fault.

I can't wait to see this new Tamron reviewed.

I'd agree with his statement.
