Yes,..the 70-200 f2.8 II IS! Fantastic lens and very sharp. A lot of fun to use!

Well, HAPPY HAPPY about 61/41 AF!! Seems the 5D line is finally getting an appropriate and competitive AF system. I was extremely skeptical it would, glad to be proven wrong on that one!I really hope the same LP-E6 batteries as the 7D & 5D II,..that will be very nice!!
A bit dismayed about the metering though. iFCL 63-zone....rather than the 1D X 100k RGB pixel metering and AF assist system. Guess thats entirely logical...even if we get the full 61pt AF of the 1D X, no way its going to perform as well without the linked in metering and slower FPS. Still, HAPPY it will have a better AF system!!
Also VERY HAPPY that it is still using LP-E6 batteries! I bought a bunch of those for my 7D, and totally expected to have to buy a bunch of a different kind when the 5D III came out. Looks like I can share my batteries amongst both bodies! WOOT!!
I have to say I'm a little disappointed. Canon still don't have a built-in eyepiece cover for the 5D line like the Nikon D700 - making you use that S___ty little rubber eyepiece cover that might be attached to your neck strap, if you use a neck strap.
First chink the armor.
How the heck can someone have both a 1DX and and 5D3 and not work for Canon in some fashion and have worked with them long enough to be given their two most anticipated new products?
Because obviously that someone is this man:
