Only $300 more for a 24–105L? My, how the mighty have fallen. Guess Sigma's 24–105 really is cutting into sales for this lens.

I wouldn't go that far. Neuro has never failed me before.
Who would shoot at 3200 ISO a non-moving model during day time?
I would be convinced when they show me 6400 of a dunking player in a school interior basketball field.
But seriously if you look at the past the one thing that Canon does very well is place products in their line. They will not let the 7D II be better than the 1D X or the 5D III especially in IQ.
Ive already had one photographer ask to change back to the version 2 Utility as he believed using Live View on 3.0 was too slow and clunky. So back to v 2.14 for him. Now Ive had another photographer report an issue when capturing images and reviewing in Adobe Bridge. What he's seeing (and I replicated) was capturing CR2's and every "say" 5th image had a generic cr2 icon instead of a preview. If you double clicked and opened the file, it then made a preview. Then a couple would be OK then another one or couple with CR2 generic.
My sole beef with built-in extenders is that they add length to gear. Sometimes space isnt an option especially on handcarry.
My understanding of the wikipedia's description of NFC is that it supports data transfer rates of up to 424 kbit/s. That's ~50KB/sec or <200MB per hour.
That doesn't sound useful beyond a day's worth of jpegs from a P&S.
While its disappointing that this isn't a L-series lens with a fixed f/stop, it appears to be a similar lens to the EF-S 18-135 STM geared for dual pixel video focusing on a future full frame canon camera, like a 6d mark II.
For those who aren't aware, I read that Canon was not able to integrate Wi-Fi because the magnesium alloy chassis (as opposed to plastic on 70D) causes too much interference with the signal. They had to decide between durability and features. Though Wi-Fi would have been nice, there's still IR shooting and tethered USB...which works well enough for me.
I think that was the point right from the first post in this thread. I don't think anybody uses it to post to Facebook.
I wouldn't be surprised if they phase out the 24-105 to push the more expensive 24-70. This would make an ideal kit lens for lots of photographers, especially if they get round to releasing a FF rebel camera.
849 for wireless and it doesn't even support 802.11ac is this a joke?
Shoot with what you have until you are convinced that it is the camera that is holding your photography back.
