Hmm... Perplexing. Not sure why they didn't just update the 24-105. I'm guessing this new lens will be ridiculously sharp and maybe have cutting edge IS, but still. As Danny^ said, I'll take the added reach of the 24-105.

The lens fits in nicely with the 70-200 F4 lenses. I would suspect that Canon has received lots of feed back for the 24-70 F4.

So would a 24-105mm f4 IS II.

I am guessing it will be smaller and lighter? The 24-105 is pretty good but I am going to assume it has the image quality of the 70-300L which IMO is way better than the 24-105.

Maybe the 24-70 range will be like the 70-200 range - that is, with f/4 and f/2.8 versions, in both IS and non-IS versions.

The 24-105 is plenty sharp as it is - the main improvement I'd be looking for in a 24-70 is in bokeh.

I'm not going to have any hair left if I keep scratching my head over Canon's new products. Why give up the reach to 105mm? The 24-105 is such a nice walk-around zoom range.

Maybe to hit the excellent sharpness levels of the new 24-70?

The higher the zoom ratio, generally the lesser IQ.

It's not believable. Who would drop their 24-105L to buy a 24-70 f/4 even if the IQ is better?

People who care about IQ, maybe? Just a hunch...

The 24-105 is quite bad at 24mm compared to the new 24-70 II... It is a HUGE difference, actually. If they make a 24-70 f/4 IS with the sharpness of the 24-70 II it will be a success if priced right.

Weird, but kind of interesting. I wonder if there's a 12-24 coming as well, that would make f4s at 12-24, 24-70, & 70-200

Very possible, actually ^

I would LOVE a 14-24 f/4 lens... I don't need the f/2.8 when that wide. Give me a smaller/lighter f/4 anyday if the optics are amazing.

I'm guessing the f/2.8 IS version is still coming down the road. I wish they did that one first.

Think new Canon lenses are overpriced? Lots (and lots) of data will set you free!
