Bummer about your loss, hope insurance covered it.

I like the 24-105 on the 5dc. If i were in the market for the 24-70, i'd wait a bit for the new one.

the 24-105L focusses faster than the 24-70L in good light.

It does. I believe the 24-105 is a more recent design.

Hearing or reading stories like this always remind me of the time my apartment was broken into and although not much at the time, all my camera gear was taken on top of other things. I can definitely relate. It really is a bummer, sorry.. Well on the bright side, at least you have an excuse to try out canon's mark ii on the 24-70.

Keep a blanket in your back seat(preferably similar to seat color). Throw it over your bag/equipment when you have to leave it in the car..it helps them from seeing it at a glimpse, and if they don't know what's under it.. they might not bother; it's what i do. ;)

Good idea, thanks. I'm going to do my best to never leave it in the car, but when I have to, I'll do this.

After all the great suggestions...I bought a used 24-70. Too in love with it, too impatient to wait for something else. *Sigh*

Just saw this thread again - now I see what you mean about it being a mistake.

Do you own your home? Was the car parked in front? If so, you might check your homeowner's insurance policy. It's possibly covered by that. If you rent and have renter's insurance, you might check that too - worth a shot.

But if the car was on your property, I would start with homeowners insurance rather than car insurance.

I've had great luck with the 28-75 Tamron. Small, light, and pretty good IQ..... and only 300 bux used.

Jason Paul, sadly insurance won't cover it (I don't own the home and don't have renter's insurance, and my car insurer won't cover it).

chardog, thanks for the suggestion. I used to have the 28-75 but found it too long on the short end, plus I never got used to the feel of it. I think I'm destined to have a 24-70 forever :D
