I did get a little flare in one shot- think I was shooting a building with the sun JUST to the left of the camera.

I recall Canon once stated about another lens, "has a silver ring for a luxury touch."
Maybe Canon should make a Blue Ring or double silver ring for their STM lenses. That would be cool.
IMO, STM lenses at the moment are too under-rated. It's my experience on the M that STM performs better than USM, but that could just be the M.
... a 100% view of that area. Or a user-assignable button - like on nikon dslrs.
Or some Canon dSLRs. I have 100% review of the selected/used AF point assigned to the Set button of my 1D X.
Yes. Which other canon eos models carry that feature at the moment?
5DIII can, perhaps some other recent bodies too, not sure.
Or it could be that the 24-70F4 and the 70-200F4 are targeted towards outdoors shooters who have to carry their gear a long way. Realistically, there is no IQ difference between the F4s and the F2.8s, the trade-off is weight for speed.Well, those 2 lenses are targeted at different markets.
The 24-70 f/4 is targeted at the lower end of the market where IS (shooting at slow shutter speeds or have shaky hands) and wants closeup/short 'macro' operation with fairly good image quality, but not top end.
You may be interested to know that I have a friend and colleague who must be one of the most financially successful photographers in recent times - we're talking $400,000 yachts here, all genuinely from photography - and he now uses a 24-70 f4 IS.
It's inaccurate to say it's not aimed at 'top end'.
I'm tempted to say the 24-70 f2.8 II is aimed as much at very wealthy hobbyists as much as professionals who want the best possible IQ straight off the camera but I don't have any hard evidence for this, so I'd better not
