Lenses / Re: EF 24-70 f/2.8L IS Exists as a Working Prototype [CR2]

IS not needed? It's like the brakes on my car.. Yeah, i drive so fast i don't need them..

Well, what if you don't dragrace but decline a mountain? Do you need them then? Not everybody shoots action. And you shoot everything, like a journalist, having fast aperture and IS is a complete lens that can do pretty much anything...

The same goes for my 85, yes it has the fastest aperture available, but I don't only use it for motion stopping, why would I? So when shooting in dark surroundings i could shoot at 3200 is instead of 51200 with a 4 stop IS, tell me that doesn't matter? I could also shoot much much freely with aperture selection, 1.2 isn't always ideal dof...

"It won't stop action" LOL, that's what the somewhat fast aperture is for, with IS you can do the exact opposite which, believe it or not, can yield some great creative stuff, and if that made you think blurred water, it tells me you're missing out what IS really let's you do..

When I do small trips I carry an Event Messenger from lowepro with a flash plus triggers, 24, 50 and 85. So in your case, the 24-105. I used to bring 30 pounds of gear , but never use any of it. If I'm just going out with one lens, the 35 is my favorite.

Anyone done any tracking tests against the 35 L? I've read that is "as fast" but measured with still subjects, pretty useless. Can it track a kid running here and there?

There's a new patent for upgrading the 50 L, and all people talk about are mirrorless??!!

Perhaps the world IS coming to an end....

If you don't like IS, then turn it off and bring your monopod ! And it is not just for video, you have a much smaller apertures without changing iso's..

And all the cool effects with longer speeds for street photo for example, because I don't like using a tripod, especially when it's almost not need for it. Panning with a fast 50 would be really cool. You would have loads and loads of new options, if you weren't busy thinking that you must hate it because increased the price of a product that's hugely improved... are we also mad that a 2012 car is more expensive and have tracktion control than a 1993 of the same car?

I love that Canon puts IS in all their glass now, well, not all (read: 24-70 mk2) but I have always said I could really use IS in all my lenses. And I can 100% gurantee a new 50 f1,4 will be sharper with better corners than the current 50 L.

And that is great news, I love the 50 L more than any other lens, and I have had a few ;D BUT, I do not love it for the sharpness and being serioouusly soft closer than 1 meter so I could surley use and update, and yes it isn't very old, but a lot has happened, and it should have been better in 2006 also.

But to have 800$ 50 f1,4 lacking only weather sealing over the 2100$ 50 L is going to kill it off anyway. So a new 50 L II within two years isn't THAT crazy...

"Less useful range" depends on the usage. I always liked the 24-70 better on 1.3 than fullframe for general purpose..

Good and great glass is neverever a waste Imo..af speed and weatherseal is also a serious benefit.

IF the 14-24 comes, it will be more in the price range of the 24-70 mk2, not the 16-35 mk2..

True. Which is why I said people may be happy to pay same as 16-35 mk II or a little more :D, but no doubt it would be $2,399 price territory :( (and people will whine a lot about it and Canon Inc., then they'll go and purchase it...then 3 months later they'll rave about it -> even better than the Nikon equivalent...then they'll speculate about what other new lens that Canon ought to have in the new product pipeline so they can complain about how long it takes Canon to update & launch new lenses  ???...then once it is announced they can commence whingeing again...and so on et cetera ad nauseam.....

Amen! LOL

I say if a 20mm is useful or not depends HIGHLY on the aperture it has, if it was as great as the 24 f1,4 LII at 20mm maybe a 1,8, I would buy that today...

14 and 24 are not in between 14 and 24....

Yes, but The 17 TS-E from canon and the two from Zeiss (18mm and 21mm) fit the pedantic bracket focal lengths. I am sure others may exist in sigma land of which I know too little.

Also the 15mm Zeiss..

Thanks for posting ! Canon needs to release the mk2 right now,...

The way Canon has been going, even if they announced it tomorrow, it could be 9+ months before you find it in a store. And i'm sure it will be $1,600+ making the Sigma an even better option. Given that they just released the 35mm f/2 IS, I have a hard time believing they would do another 35 for at least a year.

I don't care all that much about the price, and neithermdoes a lot of people buying the L-primes, I get them for advantage s I don't have right now, like weathersealing and way better corners and even faster .AF.

Yeah, the .af test is pointless, tracking a subject shows it way better than timing on a still subject...
