16-35 would be a landscape/architecture lens for many. If I would be shooting any serious such shots I would certainly use a tripod with f11. IS would not be useful.
If I am indoors shooting people at a party or such with available light I would need wider f stop to freeze the subject motion. IS would not be useful.

Unlike the 24-70 where I want IS, I am not sure how important IS is to such a wide lens.

I know there are loop holes in my thinking process here but I would prefer an updated lens with 2.8 aperture and IS. 2.8 will help me freeze the subject motion and I would have the mental peace that if I am ever stuck somewhere without a tripod I could take a slow shutter shot.

IS can be nice for a wide lens. Sometimes you want to enjoy as much as photograph yet still want to take as serious and high quality shot as you can and IS could mean two stops plus lower ISO for better detail and more DR without having to do the tripod dance. Sometimes you are with people and constant tripod use bogs things down and then well they get annoyed and you are no longer with people hah. IS could help that a bit. Sometimes the light is changing fast and being able to quickly hand hold a bunch of shots lets you capture a whole bunch of wild stuff while tripod means you maybe miss half the shots if not more. Sometimes you are on the more city part of a trip and dragging a tripod around is a drag or not allowed and IS is good for those times.

That would be a great place to have IS.

There was another mention of a new Canon 100-400 being priced in the $3000 range also coming.

The high price bit was tacked on to lend legitimacy to this rumor of the unicorn lens.  :P

I laughed long and hard.

Thank you so much for these photos. If I had to buy either of the two lenses I would buy the Sigma as I prefer better contrast.

Absolutely. Canon people may be slow but they are not idiots. If they bringing something on, they must have reasons.

I feel that Canon has enough misses to make a credible challenge to your idiot claim.  :p

Idiot claim? Nice...

the rumor is very vague..

A lot of heat for something that we don't even have a clue of what it is.

Each to his own, but yeah I agree with one poster that too many cameras.

I'm confused, what is the war these weapons are being used for?

Just an expression.

AUTO works just fine until YOU find it NECESSARY to override. Which may be rarely.

Nothing to feel inferior or insecure while using auto.

Menus are something one just gets used to, nothing to worry about.

Here are two of mine. 20 years apart but they do the same job.

Really nice photo.

I that a blow up doll in the background?!!  :o

Hahahhaa. NO! It is a dummy. I was filming a horror movie few months ago and we used this 'doll' to throw out of a window. I brought her home. Sometimes she sits in the front passenger seat of my car. Serious.
