OK... according to that, next week some time Canon will announce the 2000D... if so, I suspect we have a 50D situation on our hands....

The 50D was released last year (sort of surprisingly) with little fanfare. People were pretty surprised at this approach. BUT it turned out that Canon was just trying to keep the focus on the BIG thing that was coming (remember examining the MOON?! :rolleyes: ).

I guess something big is coming around the corner. :D Hopefully not just the 60D ;)

You've never heard of the 1000D?!

http://www.dpreview.co​m/reviews/canoneos1000​d/ (external link)

It's like a cheaper 450D!

The 2000D will be the next version.

I have no news on the 24-70. Here in Hong Kong the kindergartens and primary schools had to close earlier because of H1N1 (swine flu) so I need to look after my kids in the morning and work in the evening. :)

Soon as I have time, I'll duck into the Canon showroom and talk to the dudes... see what info I can gleam from them.

Honestly the H1N1 is like nothing... I went through SARS in Hong Kong. That was way worse.


The government is just being overly cautious.

I'll give any information I can find here when I get it. :)

AM i the only one who would liek this lens with IS?
who said is is only good at the tele end,
considering theoretically you could handhold 1/30th or so at 24 mm, 4 stop is would give you 1/3rd.(ish)

personally id love it :D

I have extremely shaky hands ( drink too much caffeine probably) and mainly use wide angles for landscapes and evening shots, so for me a 24-70 f2.8 IS USM L would be magic

I wonder if they are really updating this lens. I just received my copy last week, and I noticed the date code is UX05, meaning it was mfg in May. Why would they continue to mfg. this lens if they intend to update it?

Could be the last batch they made just to fill orders for the next few months

Keep in mind that if they replace it, it will likely be months before its in stock anywhere

Ie, if its announced next month, I doubt we'll see any in stores till xmas, and it will likely have a few hundred dollar price increase..

ok peeps, went to a big filipino event today, had a chance to cover it for a friends newspaper and guess what i saw?

YES its coming 24-70L IS was mounted and was already snapping...didnt get a chance to really talk to the guy, just that he confirmed that what he had was a 24-70L IS

i was stunned when i saw it

it basically looks the same as the current brick, but that it has the IS switch under the AF/MF switch

and i dont know but it also looks a bit slimmer

the zoom is still external meaning the lens still extends out of the lens body

i wish i had more time to look and ask questions, but i ha a feeling it was a hush hush thing and of course i couldnt take pics of it either

i really need to sell my 24-70L non-IS
