High MP body and excellent UWA should go well together for landscape shooters.

It is going to be a fun weekend!
You message makes me smile because truth be told, I didn't really save $1k ... I used the $1k to buy some additional stuff at RRS and Black Rapid. I spent the same amount and just got lots more stuff
+1 for Canon Price Watch - the lens showed up today - easy transaction... Worth every penny (although with CPW it was a lot less pennies!)
This image won a contest here in Alaska which got me represented by a stock agency. It has earned me thousands of dollars since I took it in 2009.
I had 5 version 1 lenses, none were really good. The AF issue is likely due to some 5 cent internal plastic guides that crack, or break. You can replace them yourself. Thher are also internal lens adjustments that seem to need tweaking over the life of the lens which goes out of adjustment due to bumps.
The 24-70mm f/4 is not likely going to be a improvement, its about the same as the 24-105mmL.
I'd recommend having your lens tuned up. It might cost you $300, but you should see a big improvement. The one weak area is the curvature of field, at wide apertures, the edges will be oof, or if you focus at the edges, the center will be soft. This is a lens design issue and can't be fixed. Its only apparent to those who obsess over IQ.
If I could change ONE thing, I would make the body have the integrated grip like the 1D series. Nothing else.
Couple of shots with 7D Canon 70-200 2.8 ISii Canon 2x Extender iii
Emotional mom in a wedding. Shot using my Tamron 70-200 VC.
I hope we get at least a development announcement soon. I've got at least $10k in Canon gear that rarely gets used any more. My Fuji X-T1 is used > 90% of the time now and the two reasons I haven't sold any Canon gear yet are my 400mm 2.8 and hope for something revolutionary in a sensor.
Have had some calibration/AF issues with the 200 f2.0 L lately, after my camera was serviced. So today in the heavy winds, cats&dogs rain, thick fog, I went out to see if I could find some birds to try.
First one here is uncropped (yes they were very close) at f2.0 2500 iso.
Next one also uncropped, f2.0 and 1250 iso.
it seems I have gotten the calibration right this time. Loving this lens again after hating it for a couple of weeks.
Here are some I did this week. I took the Perrier one in portrait, but added the right section seen in the landscape version in Photoshop.
Thank you. I just got into this type of photography. There are some nice shots on this thread. Here is one I did last night.
One more, shot with the EOS 5D Mark II, EF 135mm f/2L, 1/500 s, f/5, ISO 100.
Nice.... I am jealous of your weatherAnyone else get up early? I couldn't get anything very clear here, had to shoot though a veil of thin clouds.
I did...weather was nice in California this early morning
