This looks so cool  :o

There was another build came out since the post. Any comment on IQ ? ???

finally Canon did something right  ::)

Shouldn't be more than $899.  In fact, I'd probably still buy the Tamron for $1,299 even if the Canon were $899.

It needs IS and thus this one needs to be discontinued.
Ignorance is bliss  ::) and you obviously do not own the Canon 24-70 f/2.8 L II lens ... I have owned both the lenses (Canon 24-70 L II & the Tamron 24-70 VC) ... granted that Tamron is great value for money but the Canon is made of superior optics ... anyone who thinks that the Canon 24-70 f/2.8 L II should be no more than $899 is extremely unintelligent.

Let me put it another way.  As when I bought it, I'd rather have the 24-105/4L IS I have now than a brand new 24-70/2.8 II, even if they were the same price.  And I could buy a new 24-105 for under $1,000.

The difference between f/2.8 and f/4 isn't enough for fast-moving subjects.  But the difference between IS and no IS (3-4 stops) is a huge difference in image quality when you are light-limited (ISO 3200 versus ISO 400, for example).  When I need speed, I use my 35/1.4, and often even that isn't fast enough.

I'd guess they eliminated 2/3 of their potential customers when they decided to go without IS on the new 24-70.

one stop sometimes can make a difference for moving subjects

plus you forget the little detail about how the image quality is like 10x better than with the 24-105 (I got a tamron 28-75 for like $300 that had better image quality than the 24-105, so why not say it's the 24-105 that should be discontinued? I wouldn't say that, but you get my point.)

I am sure you got a bad copy

$1800 is NOT a small amount. They couldn't sell it well enough that's why they "drop" the price which is still over priced.

Can someone post a raw samples of dual ISO on and off?
I am curious to see if it is worth it?

Thanks a lot Dr. John,

I would abandon that idea  :P

They don't calibrate anything for free.  Here's what they do (copied from an earlier post of mine):

Bodies: http://www.usa.canon.com/CUSA/assets/app/html/Support/18point.html

Lenses: http://www.usa.canon.com/CUSA/assets/app/html/Support/11point.html

When waiting around at the Jamesburg, NJ service center (I brought my 1D X in for the lubrication recall, which they performed on the spot in <1 hr), I overheard one of the reps telling a customer that the clean/check for lenses basically wasn't worth it.  For bodies, I'd say it's marginally worth it - unless you live close enough to a Canon Service Center to drop off, the cost of shipping+insurance might be higher than just having a local brick-and-mortar camera shop do a sensor/mirror/focus screen cleaning.

Hi there,

I plan on getting CPS Gold and Gold membership let you send in your camera/lens for calibration. I am curious if anyone has sent in your camera/lens for "maintenance" service and your experience with CPS? In my particular case, there is nothing wrong with my camera but I wouldn't mind if they clean it up. Is it worth it?

Thanks in advance

I use 2 seconds time with mirror lock up. No problem of blur so far though I haven't experienced live view photo yet.

Why buying a full frame and goes with this for "travel light"?
Get a G1 X II or a point and shoot 50x zoom. That would be lighter

Honestly, choose whatever.
If you use a product just because you saw someone else is using it.
Then you are living the life of that person. Virtually there is nothing Canon can do and Nikon cannot or vice versa. There maybe slight differences here and there but live your own life and enjoy it

This sounds interesting ... I recently bought the G1X for my vacation and really liked using it ... don't know what they mean by a "real image view finder", but it sounds pretty interesting.

I think it meant electronic VF where you can see live adjustment (you get what you see).
