24-105 all the way. It's a great lens.

14-24L and the high MP body would be sweet!
I do expect the 14-24L to be announced. The world have waited long enough.
Well, perhaps we'll get an "in development announcement", and then a formal announcement at CP+ 2015.
You will have to pry my 24-105L off my cold dead hands
Why? The tamron and 24-70 IS clearly test better, especially at 24mm.
As always, everything is a package deal....lets not discount the added reach the 24-105L offers with IS and decent IQ and contrast.
24-105 has added reach, but also added distortion and a 70-200/300 lens delivers much better 70-105mm quality plus a LOT more reach.
Thing is, 24-105 covers a lot of range as a quality walk around lens. No doubt a pair of lens (like a 24-70 & 70-200) give you more in multiple metrics, namely quality & reach, but one len / one body has it's benefits for casual trips where you don't even take a bag... That's why I like my 24-105.
If you made a camera like the C100 but with 60p and 4:2:2 50Mbps codec, people would be more enthused to buy it and believe me, you want people to be enthused about your products, not thinking about which feature they have to compromise on.
Those stats would effectively bury the c300. This would require somebody admitting a mistake in the pricing of the c300. This doesn't happen in Japanese corporate culture. No, instead they double down with another overpriced cinema camera.
I still think the c300 is the best camera at its price or below, but I don't think the quality jump justifies the huge price premium.
Canon, you will sell tons of these things and lenses if you at least match the video quality of a 5DIII- I will pre-order now if you give us that.Well, if you want moire-less video, they might be able to do that. But, you obviously won't be getting the shallow depth of field or the general look of the 5dIII if its an APS-C or smaller sensor.
As for the G1X...well, I wouldnt get your hopes up video wise
I'm still saying this is 5d3 sensor in a 1dx body with the dual digi5s.
And as far as the price goes, it looks like the Canon video guys Katanna blades were sharper than the Cinemas EOS guys.
Then again, at $10K it will at least make RED scarlet obsolete.
