Lenses / Re: 24-70 II in April? [CR2]

They may get released at the same time (would be nice), but the 24-70 is too expensive, and too specialized to be a kit lens.

I would suspect that most people that would get the kit would be significantly less likely to own any existing L glass, and would need a high quality general purpose lens. The 24-105 f4L IS is a much better (subjective, I know) general purpose lens, and what they would benefit the most from having if it's their only L.

P.S., Congrats on the camera, and that's a beautiful dog you have.

To expand on what kubelik and scalesusa said, hold on to that kit lens for a little bit.  Practice, learn the camera, and the craft as a whole.  On that journey you will also learn what you need in a lens to fulfill your goals.

It's real easy to say the 18-135 is less than the perfect lens, but a lot harder to say what is the perfect lens for you.  Everyone is quick to spit out an opinion; and yes, the guidance you receive can be valuable; but it's ultimately up to you to determine what is best.

...which I kept and disposed of the others.

I'd love to be your garbage man. :)

I still think the logical thing to do (which almost precludes it from happening), is for them to split the line.  Bring out a 24-70/2.8 II with greater resolving power to match modern sensor densities, and a 24-70/2.8 IS version for those that need it.  It's a good strategy for the 70-200/2.8, makes just as much sense on the 24-70.  I also strongly believe the 16-35/2.8 could benefit from this as well.

In the f/4 space though, and I'm primarily thinking of the 24-105/4 IS here, while I think that lens could also use an update, I don't see room in the lineup for a non-IS version.  In fact I'm really hoping to see a MkII released as a kit lens for the 5D3.

Along the same line, I don't see why there's a non-IS version of the 70-200/4, besides historical context.  So maybe I'm just way off base.

what is a TYPO ??

It's short for a typographical error.

In a modern context would generally mean someone typed it in wrong.  In a historical context would often be a typesetting or transcription error when framing the movable metal characters that make up a page of text.

Amazing.  Not even sure what else to say.

If the next generation 1D is FF, then moving the 7DMk2 to APS-H almost makes sense.

If the next 1D isn't APS-H, then it makes even less sense.  A one off sensor is an expensive luxury on a $5k camera,  and a non-starter on a $1300 camera.

If it seems too good to be true, it probably is.

I don't think I've transfered pictures off a card while it's still in the camera but twice, maybe three times.

I'd rather have a good, fast, card reader that I can use for all my cards/cameras.  Why pay extra to integrate it into every camera, if the current USB2 connections are more than adequate for occasional use?

P.S.  Sorry, I meant to add: I've decided I'm going to buy this lens.  I'm waiting until April and if there is nothing definitive about an update, I'm going to buy the current version.

If a new version is released in conjunction with a 5DM3, I will probably buy the kit hoping to save a few bucks on both the camera and the lens.

It would be nice, but I doubt the 5D3 will have this as a kit lens; especially with IS it would just be too expensive of a lens, and would probably put the kit in the $3800-4000 range.  I think an updated 24-105/4L would be much more likely.

"Rumors of it's replacement have been greatly exaggerated" - Mark Twain

But seriously, there have been rumors for at least 3 years that it is being replaced/upgraded with IS, etc.  I honestly think they'll eventually release both a new version, and a version with IS.  When?  No one but Canon knows.

If you need the lens, I would get it now.  If the new version is worth upgrading to, you probably wont lose much (5% ?) when you sell yours since the new version will surely be significantly more expensive.

I especially like the second one (photoshopped in rain and all :) )
