OK then something on topic: There is a CR3 that 24-70 II will be available by October 2013 (or 2014?)
It should be a CR3 that there'll be a 24-70/2.8 IS before 2014 and 2/3rds of the people buying the non-IS version now will upgrade. People spending $2000+ for a standard zoom will pay $3000+ w/o flinching, too - and there always is the "off" button for IS:
Even if the IS version is a little worse optically in the corners or something (why should it?), on this level 2/3rds of users won't even notice: "Hey look, I just took some snaps of my kids, and see the blurry bokeh in the corner?".
But I admit I'm absolutely curious to see the first real review, af speed will be stellar of course, but will iq really rival the sharpness primes stopped down to f2.8, what about ca/vignetting, is the bokeh like on the 135L? When the lens arrives by xmas for the rest of us we'll know!
