@DrPhotography, +1 I am in the same camp as I crave for a better ISO camera.  I am afraid though I will have to go with the 1DX to get it, or will I?!?!?
I'm in the game for the 1DX yes. But I reckon that Canon will have a second lower MP FF with great ISO, like 5DMkIII or 5Dx, whatever they will call it, which will be a lot more affordable. We just have to be patient  ;)

I´m sorry if things i said was upsetting to some, the thing is that i´m a very realistic person. I´m not a certain brand fanatic, though Canon is my first choice. The Nikon D800 has the same AF and metering system as the D4. 36mp and probably the best video from a dslr today. I have no doubts in my mind that Canon can make a camera just as good. But they need to hurry, they have to give us something to look forward to, not today not tomorrow, but yesterday. The sad part is that i know for a fact that a lot of people selling their canon gear and the reason is "swithing system" that´s what it says in their ads. Many doubt that Canon can match the D800. As we speak more and more are having thoughts of going to the other side. Canon should not take the D800 lightly. It´s just one camera, but it could destroy the Canon sales if Canon fails to reply right now! Show who´s boss. I always think realistic! Right now Canon is in a lot of trouble.
I couldn't care less about the D800. I'll take a lower MP FF with fantastic ISO performance over it any time.

my bets are on 4D.

I'll bet you $20 Canon will not have a 4D in their line up. The number four is considered inauspicious, in Japan, because it is pronounced the same as the word for death.
Why the Nikon D4 then?  ;D

US $2299 ?????  ouch ...  :o
Although I expect it will be expensive, not that expensive though.  Even more expensive than the 70-200 F2.8 IS II?   
The guy who bought my MK I for $1040 must be very happy.
I bought a new one for € 1069 one week ago...

Anyways, the only way this lens would have been worth $2300 is if it had IS, had been a f/2, or had internal zoom.
f/2?  ;D

So this lens will zoom out, not zoom in?  That has always been one of the most touted features on the 24/28-70.
yes it will

"A new Zoom Lock lever also enables photographers to lock the zoom position at the extreme wide end to prevent damage to the lens in transit"


Typo/Misprint???  Isn't the lens fully extended at 24mm, would you not want to keep it at 70mm when carrying it?
That was the old version  ::) this one is the other way around

It looks like the rumors about a Canon Product Announcement on Feb 7. were right, it just wasn't the 5DMkII successor.

The price of the 24-70 is ridiculous. With an IS, it might be justified, but with out one, no way
My thoughts exactly. With IS and internal zoom gladly. In this version, overpriced

OT: so it's internal zoom after all

Ummmm...no.  What gives you that idea?  Why would an internal zoom lens need a zoom lock?
sorry, my mistake. I got confused because I quickly read the inner-focusing vs. front-focusing part. That has nothing to do with the zoom  :-X *facepalm*

Did I miss an availability date?  Or has Canon just given up on promising them, since they've demonstrated they can't meet them (500/4 II and 600/4 II announced August, 2010 and still waiting...)?

My thoughts exactly, where is the date?   ???  I guess we will have to continue rumors on this lens but now it will be regarding its availability date!
The EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM lens is expected to be available in April for an approximate retail price of $2,299.00. Source: http://usa.canon.com/cusa/about_canon/newsroom?pageKeyCode=pressreldetail&docId=0901e0248044cf6e#

Are any of you guys (and girls) actually photographers? Do any of you use photoshop? That is a rubbish PS image there are so many reasons why the is fake it is comical.

First on my list would be when did Canon change their lens coatings to amber paint that spills over onto the barrel? But the list is so long and extensive it really is a joke that anybody, let alone keen photographers, could give this a second look.
yer that amber coating is really fishy, come to think of it  :P

I notice something interesting (maybe it is not new, I don't know).

Contrary to the 24-70 I, the zoom from the II extend -> in the 70mm direction (if no internal zoom). At 24 mm is closed.
oh really?  ::)
