Canon EF 24-70 f/2.8L II Delayed Again

Canon EF 24-70 f/2.8L II Delayed Again

Not good news
Contrary to what I was told recently by a few retailers, Canon has delayed the release of the EF 24-70 f/2.8L II again. This time until mid September 2012. The reason for the delay is said to be for “final  adjustments in production”.

CR’s Take
This is tough news for a lot of people. I own a lens rental business and not being able to find more new 24-70′s in Canada to add to stock has caused a few moments of stress. We were really hoping for a smooth switchover from version 1 to version 2.

However, if this is for quality control reasons, then the delay is worth it. No matter how much it drives us bonkers.
