I had a brief look at this lens yesterday in a camera store. One thing I found surprising is that it's bigger and fatter than the 24/28 f/2.8 IS. I shouldn't have been surprised really, since its front diameter is 67mm vs 58mm. It seems solid and well built though I didn't get my hands on it. Maybe next time I'll ask them if I can play with it!  (I don't speak Japanese all that well so wasn't bold enough that time).

And now this new rumor of a 35L II? 35 must be the new 50!

Sorry folks.. But I don't see myself spending $850 bucks for a 35 f2 IS.. I mean, C'mon.. non sense!
You can find an used Canon 35mm 1.4L on ebay for $900 ... far better lens IMO!

Apples and oranges.

A new compact lens with IS vs an old (used n prob abused) fast prime.

Some people might need the new 35's IS and some don't. I think for night street shots it would be awesome on a canon 7D. You could shoot at crazy low shutter speeds and not have to carry a tripod or a big conspicuous looking lens that makes you look like a stalker! And f/2 is not too slow for stopping motion for action shots. Its a flippin 7D shooters dream lens in my opinion!
