For $2,900, I could fly to Japan and buy it from there, that's just plain ridiculous.

I snagged one the other day without preorder. Just have to scan and watch for any in stock tips. I got mine today. I never thought I would say this, but it is worth the price.

Of course you say that, anyone who just spent $2,300 on a lens will say that. It's in human nature. When you spend a lot of money on something, you are bound to find positives rather than negatives:)

Anyways, what the hell do I know, ignore me:D

Well I have been pretty honest with myself in the past. The last lens that gave me this level of satisfaction was the 70-200 II... I have used some awesome glass in the past such as the 35L, 85L, 135L, 300/400L's etc... And they all have special qualities but lack versatility. The 24-70 has a prime look at any FL and has versatility, much like the 70-200. I was skeptical with lensrentals assessment about resolution but I believe it now. I am not trying to hype it up or anything and I wish I had time to post samples earlier today ... At 100% the detail and contrast is off the hook.

I really want to say it may even have higher resolution than my 70-200 II... If not near identical.

I hope to have some great examples Monday night to post when back home after my evening classes.

Hope not. But the review by photozone gave the lens a ho-hum review and was critical on the pricing when they compared it to the old version as well as the new Tamron.
Onion bokeh and 70mm border performance worse then the mk1. Ouch. Read -- http://www.photozone.d​e …_ff/773-canon2470f28mk2ff (external link)
