It is going to be interesting to see the IQ of the new 24-70 2.8 compared to the F/4 version and the old one ...
The 35 was also due for an update, not sure about the IS on such a lens. Most probably video stuff...

But still, Canon give us the 14-24 please :D

24-70 f/4L IS probably much better than 24-105

Well, I'm pretty sure the EF 24-70 f/4L IS will be much better optically than the 24-105. Otherwise Canon wouldn't have a reason to release it. And I agree to what a previous poster already said: f4 with IS will be much more helpful to many of us than f2.8 without IS.

Correct me if i'm wrong but what's the point of IS in such short focal lengths?

Hei!

So how much would te 24-70 be? About 1000 dollars ? translated to europe 1000 euros?....
So canon introduces the 6D  dor 2000 and may add this as a kit lens to sell it for about 2700-2800 dollars and they expect that  "entry level" people would buy it... Imo thats a huge increase in price compared to the APS-C entry and medium levels... sounds more like the 5D mark II when it was released....

well, lets see how things develop and how many they get sold.

At last - the 35mm f/2 I was waiting for, specifically with USM & improved aperture. If the price is right, I'm buying one.

Alas, if the new 24 and 28 2.8 IS lenses are anything to go by, price will be substancially more than the old 35 f2......  ::)

If those specs are true, a 0.7x max mag of the 24-70/4 is pretty darn close to a true 1:1 macro, and much higher than any other non-macro lens in the lineup (the 24-105 is 0.3x, 24-70 is 0.29x, 24-70 II is 0.21x).  It's even higher than the 50mm f/2.5 Compact Macro.  The use of H-IS would be consistent with that high max mag (the only other lens that has it is the 100L Macro, but PowerShots also have H-IS since they have very close MFDs).

So, this lens is a combination general purpose zoom and near-macro lens, something nonexistent in the current lineup. For people who like to shoot close ups (flowers, jewelry, etc.) this is like getting two lenses in one.

I guess I'll stick with my 24-105 f/4 L IS then.

I don't see any point of getting 24-70 f/4 L IS unless you're a new Canon DSLR user who wants to buy the latest gear available.

Finger cross for 24-105 f/2.8 L IS or even better 24-120 f/2.8 L IS in the future.

With the release of 24-70 f/4L IS it will be a tough choice for some to decide with the 2.8 non IS version, what do you think?

I think IS is great to have even on a short focal length. I have wished for IS many times on lenses 100mm and below in low light situations. IS helps me keep the ISO down. But I must admit today's new cameras are changing the scenario somewhat. But I do prefer IS.. You many want to try shooting handheld some shots at 1/15 or somewhere around that with IS off, zooming in a bit and checking the corners and objects in the foreground for blur. Then do the same with IS on and see the difference. :)

Ah, finally an "affordable" 35 that will replace the previous affordable one that's not too great? Nope, Sigma beat them with their 35mm 1.4 which would be coming out this month some time? Or not, maybe these two will be priced around the same seeing how the new IS wide primes are, and how Siggy primes aren't "that" cheap, only in comparison to L.
But it is funny how third party lens manufacturers are beating the big companies to the punch with lenses

Finally, and update to the loud, poor-bokeh poor man's 35.  Still holding my breath on the pricing, I feel like this is liable to be $750 like the 24 and 28 IS versions... if they can make it $650 I think it'll be a permanent walkaround on my 5d mark 2

I think the 35mm IS is really nice! I expect it to have much better IQ and then theres finally a Canon lens available that i can keep on my APS-C body most of the time. Canon recently just released lenses with good IQ so i hope the 35 IS is one of them. And hope its not so damn pricy!

What the point of having a 24-70 4L IS AND 24-105 4L IS in the line-up? Isn't it a no-brainer to just get the 105?

The point is probably to have a more affordable kit lens matched with the 6D.  The 24-105 is too close in price to the 6D itself.

The only feature of this lens which doesn't look like pure marketing is the near macro magnification at the tele end.

Well, I am down for the  EF 24-70 f/4L IS even though I just got the 24-70 II.  I love the smaller and lighter package and IS for outside shooting.  As for the 35mmf2 IS, well I will wait for the 35 1.4L II version if it ever come out.  All the new IS prime (24, 28 and now 35) are really good but they still lack the contrast and color of the "L" series lenses...

Now CR guy, where is that high MP Canon camera so I can get rid of my D800 that barely focus in low light :-)!

The mag ratio of the 24-70 is pretty cool. My girlfriend only have the 100 L for food photography, she's always saying she wants a lens that can do a bit more, maybe this is the lens to swap the 100 L for...
