Maybe that's the plan. Overprice the new f/4 lens. Then offer it at half price if you buy the new budget full frame 6D. So their initial sales on the body seem very high. And they actually move a lot of those overpriced f/4 lenses too. And people will buy the kits and break them up and sell the lenses individually cheap, so maybe that is how to go about getting one. Kind of a twisted "win-win" scenario?

Canon 6D; Canon Lenses: EF 70-200 f/2.8L IS II; EF 24-105 f/4 L; EF 85 f/1.8; EF-S 17-55 f/2.8; Canon 1.4x Mk. III T.C.; Sigma Lens: 35mm f/1.4 "Art"
The 24-70 could be a supply and demand trick for the 24-105, they may just not produce a lot of 24-70 f4, because more people would go for the 24-10, and the prices should then even out, people would have to choose.
If the same thing happens with the 6D that did to the 5D3 it'll be $1200 in 6 months.
