My 17-55mm IS is mighty sharp wide open (for what it is), but the amount of falloff and CA is just staggering. Is this lens just not that good or might I have a bad sample? The bokeh is ugly, too, but what can you expect?

Depends what type of videos you'll be shooting.
My recommendations are:
simply because I film snowboarding/longboarding and I need a good regular telephoto as well as a nice wide lens.
IS helps in certain instances, but really it's not too noticeable in my opinion and I don't always use it.
The Scarlet I would imagine has a stronger performance for preset scenes with the appropriate lighting in mind.
I dont care if it's 1080p if they make some HUGE improvements somehow in terms of quality.
Yeah... I'm signed up for promotional emails from when I registered my 7D, but didn't get this one. Oh well.......looks like they didn't have anything useful in stock anyways. Hopefully next time!
Keep checking back. the 5D MK II is added this morning! Also a few good lenses were added in stock - 17-55mm, 17-40mm l, 85mm f/1.8
