For $2299, it better be bloody good at everything (focusing accuracy, sharpness, speed of focus, build quality)

For the primes they have updated, it makes sense that they would update 2 of the oldest primes in their line-up, but at the same time they are probably the 2 most unused primes as well..
Maybe they thought adding IS would make them more useful and attractive for video

Just like the 70-200mm 2.8 IS II. ;)

I think you will see many people liking this lens, even with the increased price.

Strange decision from Canon... It would have been better to update the 35mm f/2 for example, many people were waiting a new version of this 35mm (adding rounded blades would have been a good idea!). And the focal lengthes 24mm/28mm are very close so.... very strange. But maybe the Canon marketing dept wants to test the "f/2.8 prime with IS but no special element" concept.

FWIW I spotted a small inconsistency in the published data. Canon lens website says the 24-70 has inner-group focus, while the press release seems to say that all of the new lenses are rear-group.

I totally agree, Ive been wanting a 35mm FL for both crop & FF.... but I cant shell out the $$$ for the "L" and also feel that the f2 just isnt worth it

If indeed those are the prices the Canon is beginning to price themselves out of reach for most of us.

i dont think IS is necessary, but I do want a lighter version of 2470.

I have waited a long time for this lens. The lack of IS is the only reason I won't look at it at this time. Not for that price. This announcement disappointed to me. If it had IS and indeed has the IQ the test charts are showing my 24-105 would have been be up for sale.

I know people say IS is not neccesary and I believe them, but I find it very valuable.

I'll wait for both tested and user reviews. I may change my mind. I am interested in that new 24-70 Tamron but I'm not sure what the IQ will be like. Wait for the tests there as well.

A little, sure - but nothing to get excited about really.

Here's the numbers, 24-70 weight by comparison -

Mark I = 33.6 oz / 2.1 lbs
Mark II = 28.4 oz / 1.78 lbs

Weight savings = 5.2 oz. / .33 lbs

Canon really didn't shave off that much.


so what do we call the new 24 70? Brick ii, smaller brick, lighter brick, baby brick, junior brick?


50D with ef 16-35ii, ef 24-105L f4 IS, my new lover 70-200L f2.8 IS ii, 35L f1.4, EF 85L F1.2 mark ii, 400L F5.6
