Excellent deal for this lens and others. Probably the lowest price point of the year for many of the lenses. Can't hurt to get one more for backup.

I think it's $1,999 after the rebate.

$2,299 with the $300 rebate applied at checkout.

I believe the $300 rebate is mail in after purchase. So like BH has lens at $1999 when added to cart. It's the whole MAP (Minimum Advertised Price) thing. I wonder how many people forget to mail in the rebate. It does require some effort.

I actually bought the lens 2 months ago, used it for a few weddings and sold it.
It sure is a sharp lens, but it's still a 24-70 f2.8 lens, which doesn't excite me. I thought the sharpness might convince me to keep it. It didn't.

Thinking about getting the 35 IS or the Tamron24-70 mainly for some video stuff.

I bought this lens last spring and it hardly ever leaves my camera. I love it. But it will never replace my primes.

We upgraded from the MKI to the MKII and the picture quality is noticeably different, even to the non-photog eye.... Stacy loves it and uses it with a 70-200 for about 95% of what she does. I however love my 35 85 combo more.

Yeah, there's definitely a place for the 24-70. But I would actually use if it had stabilization. It'd be glued on to my camera for video. Wouldn't replace my video monopod, but I would absolutely rather have something like the Tamron 24-70 VC rather than the Canon. I can let the slightly lower IQ and slightly slower AF slide.

There are some rumors over at CR about Canon finally putting out the 24-70 f2.8 with IS...I'd jump on that...for $3000 of course! :lol:

Just reminding everyone about the double rebates. I misunderstand at first, but it's true. Effective till Jan. 4th, 2014.

It looks like Adoroma ended the deal, but B&H is still offering it.

If you can afford it that is.

Me neither. I have the first generation and it suits me just fine, I don't have the soft focus problems many have stated they had. I only take mine off if I'm shooting in very dim light so I can use my 50mm 1.8.

It wasn't the soft focus, but corner sharpness wasn't on par. If my composition had a subject in any of the corners, it took too much time in post to sharpen things up.
