Where were you able to find a 24-70 F4 to play with ?

I thought they weren't coming out until later on this month ?

Digital Camera Warehouse in Australia says in the next week or so they will have stock.

I live in Japan, but yeah even I was kinda surprised. The release date was 31st dec.

The store was Top Camera in Sakae district, Nagoya btw. Pretty sure Bic Camera will have it too.

The newer IS system and near-macro capabilty is a big usability plus

no it´s not really imo... the macro functionality is very limited.

if you only have this lens with you then yeah... better then nothing... at least for stationary macro objects.

Yeah I'd agree with that, the macro mode wasn't anything special. the 77mm front end blocks a lot of light too. And something about the macro lock switch I just didnt like. Its not a real switch, you kinda have to push and hold. A dumb two hand job.
