Next time you go to one of those things, don't worry about the show or whatever, just photograph the photographers. :lol:

You need a 400mm lens at least. :lol: Stalk the packs of photos around, secretly spying on their lenses.

Shoot in full RAW too. 21MP means we can get a nice look at the "IS" on top of the lens or the IS switch on the side. ;)

What's happened to Canonrumours.com today? Looks like their site is down.

I am salivating at the very thought of a 24-70 f2.8 IS lens with Canon's latest 4 stop IS system, improved optics, etc.
$1500 sounds about right no? Count me in. See you later 24-105L and its fugly bokeh!!!

I'll take one for sure if it's anywhere under $2000 US
I will say to those who think you don't need IS on a 24-70.......Have you shot with a 17-55IS ? If you have and you've shot static subjects in low light with it, you'd understand....Just makes it WAY more versatile......and as such, worth the extra snap...to me anyways.

I was really surprised Sigma didn't add stabilization to their new 24-70 HSM lens. They missed a golden opportunity and they have a pretty good IS system that should have been easy to add.
