Err, I think canon is losing it. Why not just re-vamp the 24-105L Mk2?
This lens will be DOA.
Agreed. Seems like an odd choice for a fresh lens. A refreshed 24-105 f/4isII would make a whole lot more sense. While I doubt it would be a DOA, it's hard to imagine who would buy it. Unless the IQ totally blows the 24-105 out of the water and comes in at a much lower price. Weird. Anyway, I'm getting a 24-70 f/2.8II.
