Lenses / Re: Buy Canon 24-70l II today or wait for Newer version with IS?

The real question is, do I wait for the new 85 1.8 IS, or buy the 85L?

I need the IS for video. That said, I bought the new one a few weeks ago and don't regret it even with this rumour. I'll be able to sell it in a year and buy the new one and take advantage of having the current version for at least a whole year.

Yes! I would totally pay $800 for that. I was about to buy the 85 1.8, this makes my decision harder.

The 85mm f/1.8 is like $300 used, I wouldn't let a lens that's going to cost 3x that (and who knows when it will be released) stop you from picking it up.  Get the 85, it's a stellar lens (one of the highest rated on DxO period) and you'll have no trouble selling it if you want to upgrade in the future.

Yeah I'm probably going to in a couple weeks anyway. But it's the 85L that I really want.

With the new TS-Es, these 2 new lenses, all Canon will be lacking is the ultra-wide zoom. Canon>>>Nikon

"I don't know if any other manufacturer has a faster lens with IS, but I suspect not."

Firstly, 50s are the easiest to make fast. Secondly, this is Canon, is it shocking that they are ahead with lens technology? No. Thirdly, this is 2012, technology is improving fast. Of course this is possible.

Then again, where's my 24-70 IS? ;)

Lenses / Re: 100mm 2.8L vs 135mm 2.0L

"When you are talking about the same framing, focal length and subject distance have equal and opposite effects, and thus they cancel each other out.  When comparing lenses of different focal lengths for the same framing, DoF is determined only by aperture.  So at f/2.8 for the same framing, there's no DoF difference between the 100mm Macro and the 135L, but the 135L can open up to f/2 meaning it can achieve a shallower DoF for the same framing."

Mind blown. So would this work for all lenses? Eg. a 24mm and 200mm?

Interesting. Well I sold my 100 2.0 for the 100L because its hybrid IS makes it one of the best lenses for video.

Everyone here always says the non-L macro is identical in sharpness to the L version. I've never seen any real evidence to this.

I would rather have the Canon 14mm + 24mm 1.4 + 35mm over the 16-35 any day, but I'm not super rich.
