I know many folks are disappointed at the 24-70 II which does not have IS... but got me thinking.
This is a beast of a lens... and looking at the MTF graphs... looks to be a huge performer.
Does the lens come before the cart so to speak...
Would make sense to me, especially if Canon has a beast of a MP body on the forefront that there will need to be better glass to really take advantage of a more dense sensor.
Something tells me Canon is fine with what is going on and a flanking maneuver may be under foot
When you consider the 24 and 28 that just came out, I think this is sound logic.
Let's think of it a different way--how many of you pros out there are going to make MORE money because you have the mk II of this lens? (This is an honest question, not rhetorical.) I think iff the answer is "not very many" that leads credence to the argument that there is a body coming that can better use the capabilities of the new lens(es).
