After reading some of the stellar reports of this revamped lens and re-ordering this lens for the second time, when do we expect this baby to be born?

They seem to be updating the 7D firmware a lot compared to other bodies. 7D is great and I like to see it getting the love and attention it deserves. It does make one wonder if this means any direct successor to 7D will be slower than normal in coming, or perhaps not coming at all??Actually, I think this is a firmware update for things the previous firmware update broke more than anything.
In my DSLR, the rectangle covering the AF area turns from red to green when focus is achieved.
I'm not sure about manual focus, but at 10X, your eye is easily as accurate as autofocus, and you can focus on the precise spot you want.
It's a bit pricey, but what solved my problem was the Zaguto Z finder. I was so used to using the viewfinder that I could not focus with live view and this made it really easy to focus. I just leave the base plate attached to the camera and pop on the rest when needed.
Scandinavian Photo, http://www.scandinavianphoto.se/, in Sweden have shipped my 24-70/2.8L II today! So the information that I received from Canon was in error.
Unfortunately, an misunderstanding the 24-70 is not shipped to me
Explain yourself Human!
I received information from the company that my lens was shipped. But they have not received any lenses yet.
If you "just" want to send your JPGs to your iPAD while shooting, Eye-Fi works fine with Shutter Snitch. The Eye-Fi app is useless, but as soon as you remove it again (after having installed the app once) and switch on Shutter Snitch, it works flawlessly. Problem on IOS5: While tring to find the network, the little wheel keeps spinning (expect no check mark - that took me litterally months of frustration) and shoot one or two pictures to activate your card. It takes 20 - 40 sec, until the transfer starts. Works fine with OLY XZ-1 and 5DIII
You're welcome. Every Zeiss I have purchased has been used and its been perfect for my use. I have purchased three Zeiss lenses through Craigslist and one from Ebay. Ebay has fees and you can't try a lens before purchase. CL has its share of risks but I've lucky.
Best of Luck
Have you emailed helen from Adorama? Really bad form to name and shame someone without giving them opportunity to deal with it. Hopefully you've just neglected to say that you have given Helen a chance to deal with it.
You're absolutely right. I did in fact correspond directly with Ms. Oster and she was very helpful in resolving the issue by staying in contact with me. I don't agree with their 'policy' and will take that into consideration next time I need to return something. I have made a purchase since then with good results.
She helped renew my faith in Adorama by simply staying in contact with me.
I own a 5D3 and 24 TSE MK II and Nikon mount Zeiss 21 f/2.8 F2 (that I use on a D800E and the 5D3 via adapter). The 24 TSE MK II and the Zeiss are both extraordinary lenses. Over tho, I prefer the Canon 24 TSE MK II. The image quality stopped down a bit is every bit as wonderful as the Zeiss (microcontrast included) plus you have the movements as a bonus. The 24 TSE MK II is a very large reason why I'm not going all in with Nikon. I highly recommend you consider it of the price doesn't scare you off. Upsides to the Zeiss include wildly sharp corners and the fact it's faster than the Canon as well as a bit better wide open but really, if you don't need f/2.8 or the 21mm, there's little reason to chose the Zeiss over the Canon 24 TSE MK II. Also, once you get used to having tilt-shift, it's hard not have itI totally agree with ak's statement. I have the same 5D3 w/ 24TSE II and Zeiss 35, 50 f1.4, 50 f2.0, 85 and 100
As an aside, I have also owned the Canon 24 TSE MK I and it doesn't come close to either the MK II or Zeiss.
