I know a 24-70L f/2 would be very heavy (and expensive), so I would settle for a 35-70L f/2 if it existed.

I can't read the text right at the top of the LCD though.
SOMETHING looks fishy. If you look at this site : http://blog.apertureacademy.com/2012/01/canon-200-400mm-and-600mm-prototype.html you will see there are 6 pictures of this fellow shooting with the mystery camera. IN THE THIRD PICTURE from the top there is NO TAPE over the canon logo at the bottom of the screen on the back, yet every other picture has the tape on which leads me to believe that someone has done something to the photograph(s) as I don't think the tape fell off for one only one of the pictures.
Speaking of sensors, there is also another factor at play here that has an even greater impact and that is the crop factor.
For your 5D, you can get a 300 mm f2.8 for $7,300. But, with a 7D you can get an effective 320mm from the 70-200mm f2.8 zoom for $2,100. The 300mm f4 is still a cheaper option for the 5D, but again, on the 7D that's effectively almost a 500 mm f4 (actually 480mm), which is a $6,800 lens.
One novelty is separate switch photo/movie mode on right to viewfinder. I don't think there were any switches like that before in Canon DLSRThe 7D has one.
What's the huge deal with the 200-400? It is a nice range to have ... and Canon has 400mm covered in 4-5 lenses at different price points does it not?It has a built-in 1.4x extender which makes it a 280-560mm f/5.6 lens as well.
.... If I understood neuro's tech posts correctly, the DOF will be more shallow on FF for the same subject distance and framing.I thought for the same subject distance, the Crop has more OOF blur, but for the same framing the FF has more OOF blur...
You do know a new 100-400 is coming out?
I found myself wanting to blow out the back more in some cases, and since moving to the FF 5D MKII I am actually surprised how much I have been shooting the with the 70-200 indoors.
so now, what is a complete change, is I am leaning to the 2.8 IS either MK I or MK II.
Btw, Canon really needs to let us save more than one custom WB. What do most Nikon's allow? 5 or so?The Canon EOS 5D Mk II has 3 personal presets, the EOS-1Ds Mk III and EOS-1D Mk IV have 5.
Will it buy me enough OVER AND BEYOND my current EF 16-36mm f/2.8 L II lens?
What about Sigma 8-16?? I am considering Sigma 8-16 or Canon 10-22 on 450d.
