There have been a few of Canon's Follower's of the light that have let slip that there's one a 24-70 IS L in the works, but weather we'll ever see it in production and on our shop shelves is another story.
It's a bit like the 24-105mm f2.8 lens from about 8 years ago. There were spottings and a few comments about it's development. Then it was never release, apparently it was as big as a 70-200/2.8.

Or maybe you know something we don't......... ;)

Mmm. 35 II. That'd be awesome. :D Then there'd be, what.. only the 135 f/2 left worth updating in the L primes? :D

The 135/2 is probably on Canon's to-do list. So far, all of the recent mkII lenses have been weather sealed. The current optics are rated as one of canon's finest lenses but it lacks weather sealing. It's also an old design and a newer design could easily match the newer Sony 135mm f1.8 with a 72mm front element. It's only 1/3 of a stop faster but hey, if it's being refreshed...
The lens that i'd like to se from Canon is a 100mm f1.4L, it's theoretically possible whilst keeping the 72mm front filter thread.

If they did release it they would get me buying a 5D Mark II.

In not doing so im staying with my 40D and 17-55 thus loosing them £3k from me!

And before anyone says, get it anyway:

The IS is invaluable, as long as there isn't a 24-70mm IS F2.8 lens out, im not moving to FF.

With Canon's current priceing structure, every time they release a newer version of a lens...they seem to double the price. So a new 24-70 IS L would be arounf the £2000 mark and a new 135mm f2 II L would probably be arounf the £1400 mark....not cheap at all.

So is high ISO performance. At whatever ISO you are using on your 40D, you can increase it one stop faster on the 5D Mark II and still get similar performance. ISO 6400 on the 5D Mark II is less noisy than ISO 3200 on the 40D. And 3200 on the 5DII is less noisy than 1600 on 40D.

So if you're shooting ISO 800 or 1600 on your 40D @ f/2.8 with IS, you could be shooting ISO 1600 or 3200 on the 5D Mark II @ f/4 with IS using the 24-105mm f/4L IS.

Do people really need IS for this lens? Sure its nice, but these aren't long focal lengths.

They should make a 24-70 1.8 IS

Then I'd buy it.

Do people really need IS on the 17-55 f2.8?
Yeah why the hell not

No, they don't and for available light shooter (like me) it's a complete waste of money. Adding a 4 stop IS unit will just add bulk. Firstly it'll kill the battery quicker. Secondly, an IS unit will never replace the use of a bright prime. Sure an IS unit can stabilise a photographer's shaky hand but it can't freeze movement in the same way that a bright prime can. Thirdly, the price would likely be double the current model.
The only real gain would be a new and sharper optical design...but then again, my current 24-70L is pretty sharp enough. Not prime sharp....but very very close.

So if you're shooting ISO 800 or 1600 on your 40D @ f/2.8 with IS, you could be shooting ISO 1600 or 3200 on the 5D Mark II @ f/4 with IS using the 24-105mm f/4L IS.

What about ISO3200 @ F2.8 @ 1/5th?

That would be ISO6400/F4 @ 1/5th? for the same shutter speed?

As my ISO3200 shots are very very impressive I still need some more benefit from £3k than its currently offering me. F2.8 + 4/5th Gen IS + L quality + high ISO quality THEN I will be persuaded. Although at these new prices I doubt I will bother as my 17-55 and 10-22 are ridiculously sharp!

If true, I suspect this will finally bring an end to all the 24-70 vs 24-105 threads...
