No, the only thing you are saving is the mirror flapping. The shutter still cycles after every shot.

I am not a big fan of the new Sony Zeissesque design. It somehow looks cheap and plasticy.
Supposedly a new 50mm 1.4 is also coming.

Lenses / Re: A New EF 50 f/1.8 IS? [CR1]

In regards to the price moaning. Consider that you are comparing lenses that are brand new with lenses that are way over 10 years or older. They have already recouped their research and tooling costs and therefore cost has come down over time.

At the time they came out they were the same price as the newly released lenses.

I bet in ten years time the 24-70 II will cost about as much as the 24-70 I and everyone will start moaning about how much its successor is going to cost. I guess most of the forum goers here (me included) have started their interest in photography when the 24-70 was already an old dog and they have no reference points for brand new lenses.
