Weight comes down to build in this case, Canon and Nikons are built like bloody tanks, This is not...The Sigma 24-70 HSM is similar in size from the looks..the Sigma is actually a hair lighter, by about 30g...the Canon is 120g or so heavier than it...the Nikon is 70g heavier... So im not convinced its really all that "OMG LIGHT!"

VC doesnt add as much size and weight as most people expect i think, the 17-50 VC isnt much bigger than the 17-50 non-vc, the Sigma 17-50 OS isnt much bigger than the 18-50 f/2.8, and the difference in size and weight in the 70-200 families in Canon isnt significant

VC/IS/OS/VR systems are only a set of small diameter lenses usually near the rear of the lens, they're not very big, nor very heavy..the mechanism for the gyros and the actual motor to move the lenses around would add girth, but not much weight....

That's cool to know :lol: so now where is that Canon 24-70mm IS... ok wait I don't use that, where's that Nikon 24-70mm VR?:lol:

^- Yeah see my last post, i went and compared some specs, I really am not thinking this lens is as small or light..

The Sigma 24-70 i think is the closest lens to it on the market right now...

Probubly were waiting for someone to tip and force their hand...

Canon will probubly be first, around 5D3 time, Nikon will follow probubly later on in the year, I dont expect it with the D800...

I noticed Pentax got left of the list of mounts. This has been happening with almost every new Tamron, Tokina and Sigma lens. Not a good sign for those guys.

Probubly because its just not economical to bother if they're not selling enough units... Sadly, Pentax is dying and the only thing that will change that is a really compelling new camera...

The K-5 is really cool, but.... well why would you buy it when you can have the D7000, A77, 7D or D300s instead? What is its special thing over those bodies? Pentax's lens system is nice, they have some good optics and everything, but... they're also pretty expensive when i last looked... theres no FF grow room on top of it and if you go pro, no pro support network, Also where i live, theres not one store that has anything Pentax, So theres also that...

-edit- of course also this is a Full Frame lens and there isnt much of a reason to offer it to a system with no FF digital bodies

How lovely!!! :cool:The 3rd party manufacturers are really applying the pressure, by designing unique/better-equipped lenses than Nikon and especially-Canon!! This can only be a good thing. :D

Every sale Tamron, Sigma or Tokina gets should be counted as a sale against Canon at the end of the day...

Which means that it will force Canon and Nikon to either innovate, lower prices, or offer even better products to justify the higher price tags..

Which at the end of the day, is good for us

Take that Canon and NIkon! I can't believe it took so long for a stabilized FF standard f2.8 zoom and that Tamron of all companies was the first.

+1. Now the major brands have to play catch-up to the 3rd party manufacturers.

So will Canon even unveil its rumored 24-70L II non-IS? Or send it engineers back to the drawing board to develop an IS version ASAP?

Because they haven't had a better alternative yet. Now they may have one. A fast lens with IS sounds like a great combo for Nikon and Canon shooters.

They are probably too full of themselves to do that...so they will probably release their version II without IS soon unless the rumors are wrong.

Does this apply to FF'ers? Seems like an ideal lens to the 24-70 L. :O
