Is it worth the wait for the new Canon lenses (specifically the L type) with Canon's new IS system? I know there is a few out now. Does anyone know when they plan to release more?

Not worth the wait if you need to use the lens now. No one really knows when canon's gonna release more lens.

I heard next Tuesday. Check em out!

Seriously, no one here really knows and there really aren't any major new IS lenses coming that have been leaked or anything. I assume you're looking for either a 24-70 2.8 IS or a new version of the 70-200 2.8 IS?

If the recent Version II releases are any indication, a new lens version is hardly affecting the used price of the old ones. The 24L hasn't budged with the new 24 II out -- because the new version is in a completely different price league. The 2.8 zooms, if they are replaced with version IIs, will probably add at least $500 to each one... keeping the old versions relatively stable on the used market.

Indeed...

Unless theres a HUGE reason to upgrade, thus the market being flooded [Ie, a 24-70 f/2.8L IS might actually cause a lot of 24-70 f/2.8L and 24-105 f/4L IS lenses to suddenly go for sale] causing prices to drop, Theres very little reason the lens prices will go down..

In fact, if the economy keeps going the way it is, Buy now and when you resell you'll make some money ;)

maybe I'm crazy, or maybe I just got a really good deal from a local dealer last year. but I have been thinking that some lenses went up in the past year. I've been seeing posts for used 70-200 2.8 IS for 1600 plus and they sell QUICK. I picked up mine last year, brand new at a good local dealer for 1390. Which at the time I thought was decent, but nothing crazy. Now being curious at the prices I have been seeing here, I checked ebay and they are as high as 1850. I have been nervous as well if a "new" version comes out that the price of mine will plumet. Hopefully, as stated here that won't be the case. and hopefully I got a good enough deal that on the used market I would not be out much if anything. however, for what I need, I really don't have a plan on sellin...
