someone wanna buy my Mark1...lol

i mean i dont think IS is necessary, but if it comes out with it, im pretty sure it would be pretty bada$$

it wouldnt be the "Brick" anymore, esp with a 3stop IS, it can be renamed "Cinder Block"

hahahaha

thanx for the heads up SN!

I wish that a Mark-II version will have:
1. A better (consistent) QA
2. IS

Just want everyone to know... this is a prediction (not set in stone) based on observations.

Don't sell your 24-70Ls right now. ;)

One of these days I'll go chat to the dude at Canon. He's usually good for some "hints" on these things.

My guess is that there are people out there (under Non-disclosure agreements) that know about the up and coming lenses.

How Canon keeps them quiet I don't know?! Must be one heck of a piece of paper!

Do that, SN. I ordered a bunch of stuff from Canon in March. I am still waiting on half of it. My 24-70L arrived within about 4 days.

Since that time, my store mentioned that they've now got about 5 backorders. ATM I am queitly cheering to myself cause it has hardly left the front of my camera, but I will be a teeny tiny trifling bit sad if they all get a new mark II version.

I'm currently saving to get a 70-200 2.8L IS and a 16-35 2.8 mkii

I'm hesitant to get the 70-200 because I have a sneaking suspicion that a replacement for that lens will be announced around August. Though, that lens is pretty easy to get here, so maybe not.

Some time this week I might go to work via TST (that's where the Canon centre is in Hong Kong). I'll see if the nice guy is there and I'll have a little chat with him.

Seems this thread is spreading around a bit:
http://www.northlight-images.co.uk/Canon_new​_lenses.html (external link)

For me, this is a hard time to buy a new lens. I just wish Canon would announce its new lenses sooner... but then, you don't want to have to wait another 6 months for the lens to finally get in stock. ;)

Especially since Canon have sort of out resolved a lot of its current L lenses (with the 5Dmkii) and there are some holes in their lineup in a way.

I think the following lenses will be announced soonish to go with the 1D mk4 release.

14-24 2.8L (Canon's answer to the Nikon 14-24... because Canon can't have people buying a Nikon lens to put on their cameras ;) ).
24-70 2.8L (I suspect the 1Ds4 will well out resolve this lens and it seems like a nice "kit" lens for it).
70-200 2.8L IS (a lot of people say the f/4 IS version is better... which is true in that it's sharper and has better IS)
100-400 IS (though this has improved lately - in terms of QQ - it is due for an update in many people's opinion).

That's it I think.... probably some lower end lenses too, maybe some new EF-S lenses, but I'm not too interested in that. ;)

I wonder if there will ever be another DO lens?

I mean from what i understand, the large disadvantage is poor contrast, which is easily fixed in digital post process
