24-70 f/4 IS ?...Seems like majority of FF owners have either the 24-70mk1 or the 24-105. For anyone who already has a zoom in this range, I'm not quite sure what its purpose would be.

4 Stop IS with exceptionally sharp optics?

It seems like a redundant lens, but if they do release it there has to be a valid reason.

I would buy this lens!!... If it was a 14-24L.

Come on Canon, get your priorities straight. We don't need another 24-70.

Do you really need IS in that standard focal length (even if it was available at extra price).. to me shooting from 24 - 70mm is no problem at all handheld even at slow shutter speeds. IS hold only be there for tele lengths where you could have issues hand held.

I guess videographers could benefit from it, but its nothing a rig can't fix.

This!

They have to make a good EF wide angle. The 16-35 and 17-40L are not the best out there.
Really don't know why they are not going for the WA now.

I wish they updated those lenses first:
- 17-40L
- 14-24L
- 35L
- 50L

i used to have the mk1 on FF, sold it because i needed the IS.
bought a 17-50 2.8 VC and crop camera to fill in the focal length between UWA and tele.

but i only use FF's now and am in the market for a stabilized 2.8 midzoom. i was going for the tamron until i saw the lens element that had a possibility of falling off, so i'm waiting for tamron to fix that issue (waiting for current stocks to run out) or now that there's a rumor, waiting for the 2.8 IS.

Agreed.

Would you buy a 70-135mmL F/4 IS zoom lens knowing that the option of a 70-200mm F/4 IS can be had?

At first glance, this just seems like a shortened overlap of the 24-105mm.

Seems...

I had the 24-70 for several years and found the range to be very awkward in live settings. It really only found use from me in the studio.

Limiting the aperture to F/4 does nothing for the event/live shooter, even with IS. I can see this lens' specs being a solid choice for the studio.

If this lens was attractively priced, I would consider the F/4 version just for for the small percentage of studio work I do.
