No, no, no, NOOOO this will be 24-70 2.8L IV not III. You are too optimisticWide open, f/2.8 at 24mm I expect a lens this expensive to have abolutly no vignetting.
The 600mm f/4L IS II costs $13,000 and has about 1.5 stops of vignetting wide open.
The 24L II is $1500 and it has 3 stops of vignette. O_o
This is typical of a board with "Rumors" in its name.
We start by talking about the 24-70mm f/2.8 L II shot at 24mm, jump to the 600mm II and then it somehow turns in to the 24mm f/1.4L II
The New Rumored 24-70 2.8L III will have Zero vignette at all focal lengths and perfect IQ. It will weight in at a reasonable 500 Grams and a MSRP of 1299$ including canons all new 7th generation Image Stablizer providing 8-stops of compensation.
This could be a "rumor" right?
Can I pre-order now?
Sure, If you've got a spare billion dollars for the R&D.
My Favorites My collectionSo you have 3 Canon, 1 Olympus and 1 Nikkon lens. Interesting combination!

Canon 50mm L f/1.2 Olympus OM 50mm f/1.4
Canon 70-200 L f/2.8 II 70-200 L f/4 IS
Canon 600mm L F/4 II Nikkor AIS 600mm f/5.6 ED
code UA0610= June 2012 much easier to decode than the serial number
Thanks for the input. i like the idea of the 24-105, but on a crop it is no longer so wide. the 5dc is an option that i havnt thought of in a while... and getting rid of the 5d2 would be so hard.. its been my best friendI agree with Neuro. Excellent combination or, you just keep the 5D2 and 50mm 1.8 for now and sell the rest.
oh yeah, i forgot i have the 50 1.8, didnt even think of it since its not used too often and wouldnt be worth it to sell. its great for normal, i guess my problem is, i want wide, and tele..
Hasn't anyone noticed the smile icon in my post ?I beg to differ. The 24-70 f/4L IS will go nicely with the 70-200 f/4L IS. Only 24-70 2.8L II goes nicely with the 70-200 f/2.8L IS II. You have to match your lenses or they will feel uncomfortableDoes not make any sense to me. I have various lenses with various f stops and they all go 'nicely together'.
Neither to me - it depends on what you want. If a shallow dof is required f2.8 on a wider lens is more important than on a tele lens. If the lens is required to be "fast" for low-light shooting it's the other way around.
When is this coming out?I beg to differ. The 24-70 f/4L IS will go nicely with the 70-200 f/4L IS. Only 24-70 2.8L II goes nicely with the 70-200 f/2.8L IS II. You have to match your lenses or they will feel uncomfortable
Will go nicely in my kit with 35L, 85 1.4, 100L. When I add a 70-200 f2.8 (mk II or Tamron) it will be complete (for now).
i would love a Canon 500mm f/5.6 L IS II for birdingThat would be ideal but not likely as it would compete with the f/4 version
TS-E 17mm f/4 LTS-E 17mm f/4 L can be a very nice landscape lens. It is not necessary to be used for architecture only.
Canon MP-E 65mm 1-5x
The reason I put them on my "dream" list isn't the price. I could afford them, but I doubt I'll ever be able to justify the price for such specialty lenses. Pretty much all super-high-quality non-AF lenses are on my dream list.
A 5DMkII or a 5DMkIII either with a remote release are not exactly cheaper optionsA chinese wireless adaptor costs a few dollars. I cannot imagine that the solo photographer will be able to change 6D's settings and shoot with his camera at the same time anyway. So a remote shutter release is usually enough. Plus, I do not think that composition can be changed remotely by the camera itself!Just like a 800mm lens is sued for certain purposes and not for wide angle compositions, the WiFi feature too has certain uses and changing composition is not one of them.
You can get a Chinese motorcycle for $400, so why do people spend a lot more for branded motorcycles? ... every product has a customer base, those who can afford will buy the branded stuff and those who are on a budget will buy the cheaper options ... different strokes for different folks.
