Call me paranoid but can I still get the same lens ~7 years from now?

Ok I have a 24-105. I think it's perfect for a walk around lens. 24-70 would be too short for me. Say 7 years from now mine is starting to wear out and I want to just get a brand new one, do you think they'll still be available even if Canon plans on replacing it with a 24-70 F4?

Do you think there is any chance they'll come out with a mk 2?

I think Canon made a bonehead move in making a 24-70/4 instead of a 24-105 II. I wouldn't expect to see a 24-105 II either. Hopfully in 7 years another option will be available though. Maybe they are going to bring out a 24-120/4 to compete with Nikon.

I believe it'll be a few more years for a mk2

Bodies come and go, but optics seem to test time, the 135L for example is almost 17 years old and is still one of the sharpest lenses you can get even with the latest and greatest bodies.

The optics are fine I'd like to see newer IS but basically the ability to buy a new one is all I care about. It's like paranoia insurance so I don't have to baby this one.

You should be right. Even if you can't, you'll be able to buy something better :)

Maybe by the time you need to buy another one, there'll be a Sigma Art 24-105 F2.8 with a 4 stop IS :)

If I could buy a mark II I'd be very happy. Or something with a longer reach but same optics and not a compromise lens.

seriously, since you're pretty obsessed with IQ, save yourself some trouble, and go FF. Optics can only go so far.

both 12 megapixel cams viewed at 100%, FF left, Crop camera right.

It's not really about the optics. I have no plans on going FF unless someday in the future I buy one in addition to my crop cameras.

Looks more like a variance in focusing to me.

if you look at the right of the photo, you can see some leaves go in and out of focus. The ones in focus are nowhere near as crisp as the ones on the left image.

Buy a new one - keep the box sealed. Unwrap and enjoy when necessary - years down the road. Some people and businesses practice this concept.

I might do that to be honest in say 3-4 years, hopefully they still sell them? I'd have to take it out and test it. At least it wouldn't lose money.
Saving up for a 100-400 right now to compliment it.

Can this not turn into another FF vs Crop thread. There's a nice big one going on in the camera forums right now for anyone wanting to have at it with that debate

To the OP: I wouldn't worry about 7 years down the road. Hell I have a lens that's 25 years old and it's still going strong.....mind you it's one of the cheapest lenses canon used to make (metal mount 50 f1.8)

There are lots of old zooms that have been around the hock a few times and are still going strong. Plus 7 years from now your needs might be different or canon might have an even better lens out.

I fear that the 24-70 f4 IS might mean no 24-105 f4 IS mark2 but you never know.
