Where do people rank the following:

Canon 24-70
Canon 24-70 II
Tamron 24-70
Sigma 24-70

And (assuming the Canon 24-70 f4 has similar optics to the 24-70 II) where would this new 24-70 f4 sit in your opinion?

I guess I don't understand all the hate on this lens. As a landscape shooter, I'm thinking this might be kind of cool.

Lighter than the f2.8 version for hiking, hybrid IS means the tripod could stay home more often and if the optics are similar to the 2.8 II it could replace a several primes with an AF zoom. Doesn't sound absolutely terrible to me...

I honestly agree. I think the price is terribly high, but I also think it's going to settle down in the near future.

If the 70-200mm f2.8 IS II was the only lens out and the 70-200 f4 IS was released after, there would be a ton of haters out there, nobody seems to mind the line-up of the 4 different 70-200's we currently have. Granted, they are priced better, but we'll have to wait and see what happens with future pricing on this lens.

I'd like to see the optical performance with this lens, if it's much better than the 24-105, then I'll make the switch in a heartbeat.

Hiking 10 miles into the wilderness to get the shot I want, every ounce counts.

But you can buy something like distagon 21 mm or canon ts-e 24mm which are truly vest lenses for landscape.
Or you can get a 24/2 OM from Olympus for $200, which will perform on pair with 24/1.4L and save tons of money.

I think you misunderstood my take on it. What I was trying to say is that no matter what the product or price, people in general will pay for it. Regardless if its bigger/smaller or faster/slower.

who's out there buying the 24/28mm f2.8 IS lenses then...

As a landscape shooter, the tripod NEVER stays home. Ever.

While this is true for serious landscape work, for incedental stuff while out hiking in general when photography is not the main motivation the hybrid IS could be a serious boon.

I have the 21 distagon and although the only type of photography I take seriously is landscape photography, the fact is my young family sees more camera time than landscapes do these days so it would be nice if my most expensive lens were one I used more often while still offering very good IQ edge to edge for when I do get to shoot landscapes.

Video guys, mostly. People that shoot a lot of video are the target market for the wide angle IS lenses.

The biggest complaint with the old 35 f2 is the hexagonal aperture. The new one isn't going to make many people run out and buy it as an upgrade to the old one, but it will be there as an alternative to the L. It's not as fast, but it's more compact and offers IS. That could be worth it to some people.

lol if DPreview is correct, you got only 3 cm working distance for 0.7:1 macro. This is not replacing any macro lens, I am afraid.

I don't know about you, but I spend too much time on these forums and quite frankly I am not seeing much interest at all in the 24IS and 28IS.

I don't do incidental work.
