I have received two updates that a major store in Germany expects their first shipments of the new EF 24-70 f/2.8L II by the end of next week. This information was backed up by a CPS rep in another country.
New ship date?
We and others are hearing that the new Canon EF 24-70 f/2.8L II will not begin shipping until October 2012 at the earliest. Nothing has been officially mentioned by Canon as of yet.
You will see in the latest EOS utility the lens correction information has been added for the EF 24-70 f/2.8L II
