I'd much rather use the 7-200 f/2.8 IS II USM plus the 1.4x extender than this lens - so much more flexible.

Sounds good to me... I'll believe the "noticeably lower noise than the current 18MP," when I see the RAW files, and not a moment sooner.
So they will make an overpriced V2 and then have plans for a IS version. Why didn't they just make the V2 have IS?It is quite simple really. Canon will first launch the overpriced 24-70L II, and then they will launch the 24-70L II IS at an ever higher price! (Let's call it "over overpriced").
The pricetag of the IS version will then make the non IS version look like a bargain!
This strategy might seem kinda strange, but do not worry - Canonites will bend over and take it deep. Both versions will sell like hotcakes, regardless of overpricing. Just look at the 5D3 sales!
These are happy days for Canon.
