Compare a 1,4 to a f2? Well, the 1,4 let's in twice the light, do you want that and shallow dof as a result? The answer to that question gives the lens you want... add weatherseal too..

Some photographers get the EF 14-24 f/2.8 for testing a few weeks ago.

If it is only a few weeks ago, then we may expect an announcement in Q1 of 2013. But actual availability may be Q3 or Q4. I suspect QC can deliver issues that need to be resolved before the productionproces and final delivery start

Does "some" include yourself? So, how is it? 8)

There is a fly in the ointment ... Great rouse to stem the sigma tide

I'm considering the Sigma in place of the 35mm f/2 - the price of the mk1 L is far too high for me, and the mk2 L would be even more expensive.

No chance. I once asked M.ST about his experience with the 7D MKII. No reply. Which is understandable since he probably - for sure - signed a NDA

Well, made my decision today. Saving account for the 14-24 F/2.8 is set up. Hope I'm not upset about the price tag!!!  :-[ But this is a "once in a lifetime" lens, and worth the wait. Merry Christmas to ya'll. Cheers, Pedro.

    its as if deep down inside you want the canon lens...but why? if the third party lens is just as good but cheaper....


Weather sealing, resale value, compatibility with future Canon bodies, etc...

lol, yes i know. i was being facetious. i like the direction the new canon lens releases are going including edge to edge sharpness, improved chromatic aberration and all the things you mentioned.

im in your boat as i picked up the 35L this year (i did so knowing a replacement was imminent) so will likely be watching the resale market for the most opportune time to sell it and put that money towards the II.

If this rumor is indeed true (which we don't know yet), I think it can only be positive that there will be so many good options at 35mm: the new Sigma, the current 35L (aftermarket once the 35L II goes on sale), the 35L II, and for those that need IS, the 35 IS.

I have to say, though, that I would have been happier with an announcement for a 50L II or a 50/1.4 II. That's where I feel the Canon line-up needs more attention.

Just another no budget talker. I wonder, what kina lenses do you have?

I'm sure you think 1D X is crappy camera too

28/1.8 and a 50/1.4 - mostly carry it with me on the streets in the bag whilst walking about during my commute in the city where i study.. so yeah.. i donĀ“s have the money for a noctilux..

the 1D X is an excellent camera for sport shooters.. why on earth would i say it were crappy?

As a prev. owner of 28mm f1.8 and 50 f1.4, I know both of these lenses well. None of these lenses can be shot at wide open, especially the 28mm. Both lenses need to stop down at least 1stop before you can see the sharpness.

What is the point of buying a prime with f1.ish and shoot at f2ish. Just FYI...both 35L and 50L are sharp at wide open... and yes, I have real life pictures if you want to see.
Body: 1DX -- 5D III
Zoom: 16-35L f4 IS -- 24-70L II -- 70-200L f2.8 IS II
Prime: 40mm -- 85L II -- 135L -- 200L f2 IS -- 400L f2.8 IS II

I've been thinking about that...the front filter capability is what's stopping me.  Oh...that, and the fact that no 14-24/2.8 has actually been announced, and even if one is, it might be many months before it's actually available.   :P
