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.

^^^THIS^^^

I shot a few weddings this season with these lenses paired up with 7D's.

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 think with time, we'll see more interest. I just don't understand the reasoning of producing 2 lenses with focal lengths so close together. Why not release the 24 f/2.8IS as they did and then upgrade the 35 f/2 with a 2.8 IS version.

Basically, the 24-70 f/4 will blow the 24-105 f/4 out of the water. Supposedly. Easy to believe since the focal range is less and the 24-105 is quite old compared to the new lens.

although not at the level of 24-70 II (but then it's a whole $800 cheaper too).

I read this a long time ago. This is what I got out of it...."blah blah blah"

and I especially like:

"Canon's MTF charts are based on theoretical calculations used in the design of the lens"

A bunch of made up, mumbo jumbo......

I am a whole lot more interested in the 35/2 IS then either of the 2.8 primes. At least it gives me an extra stop that I can't get in a zoom. I just wish it was closer to $5-600 instead of $800.

For now, unless I go full frame, my Sigma 30/1.4 is great for my needs. I shoot mostly living objects, so IS is nearly useless for me in that focal length. Any shutter speed slow enough to need IS is going to have too much subject blur anyhow.

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 don't do incidental work.

OK, but for those that do indeed execute "incidental" work, IS for landscape is potentially useful.

At any rate, this lens without the IS would indeed be handicapped IMHO, for it would appeal only to those serious landscapers who always have a tripod, or those really casual shooters that don't mind a bit of handhold-blur in low light (or only shoot in good light and fast shutter speeds).

If the 24-105 f/4 IS didn't exist, this lens would be an obvious, though pricey, choice. And as a kit lens for the 6D, I wouldn't sniff at that combo.

Sounds like we simply have different requirements then. I am lucky enough to live in an area rich with photographic opportunities and when I set out specifically to make images for my website, everything comes with - tripod, filters, lenses, remotes etc.

But, when Im just out taking my dogs for a walk down some forest trail after work, a tripod isn't necessarily welcome every day but my camera still comes with. These are the times when I would think IS could be more useful - even more so than a faster aperture simply because I could handhold with smaller apertures and longer shutter speeds. If you're willing to haul a tripod, filters and cable release around when you're walking your dogs in the evening I will admit you are certainly more dedicated than I.

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

If you are hiking 10 miles through the wilderness, I would imagine that you are in quite good shape. I doubt that 70g would make much of a difference...it's about the same as 1/6 of a bottle of water.

Cheers if you really go that far, you would deserve a great shot for the effort

The 24-70 is a great looking lens.
I'd use it just because it looks good.

Give me a 50 1.4IS, and the 1.2 may be on the selling block. The 35F2 IS is at least on track as a decently fast lens with IS. Need more of these.
