Nice, but its still about $1000 over priced IMO.

You got that right.

because Canon's going to announce 24-70mm f/2.8 IS soon, so they're dumping stock now.

After the way the market(s) have reacted to the 24-70mm f2.8L II this wouldn't surprise me.

It's really just a matter of time, regardless.

IMHO, Canon is still running their camera business with some old fashion product design/marketing strategies. If they still don't response quick, that will cost it's market share and customer loyalty big time.

It won't become any more tempting to me until it hits $1700 or less. Every day I get closer to getting the Tamron and hoping it works well enough to serve me until Canon re-releases the 24-70 with IS.

I have to wonder if Canon updates the 35L as has been rumored for years and charges $2999 for it if the IQ will be claimed to be so superior to the current 35L to jusify the outrageous price increase. There are definitely improvements to the 24-70 II when it comes to weight and design but I don't think the current list price or anything near it is justified. No wonder the resale price of the v1 has remained stable or even gone up a bit, it's not like it turned into a junk lens overnight.

You know, I'm beginning to notice that BuyDig is like a bellwether for the other camera stores. You see BuyDig drop a price on one item, and soon B&H/Adorama/Amazon drop their price more than what BuyDig did. Case in point is this 24-70 II, but there have been others.

Just buy it. Your going to wait ten years before it hits $1,700.

I remember seeing posts like this about how long it would take to buy a 5D3 new for less than $3k. Early adopters always get the shaft. :lol:

Cameras are different. Lenses don't drop like that. The best you will hope to see in the next year or two is a couple hundred dollars off. Maybe in 5 or 6 years it will settle down to 18 or 1900 hundred dollars. If you can wait that long then more power to you....
