Canon strategy is for jokes.
I do believe Canon died after the 5D2.
I chose Canon then, i wouldn't choose Canon now.
I don't know what Canon is thinking but there is no reason to buy an overpriced lens with shorter tele end than 24-105
no reason at all!
lighter? smaller? how much is it? tiny? i don't think so.
They should make an 24-70 2.8 IS or an 24-105 f/4 IS II
The huge problem with canon users is that they don't demand! they compromise and that sucks. I can't take Canon seriously when third party solutions like magic latern unlocks a ton of features that Canon could blend in with a firmware upgrade, while nikon does that in the first place.
I can't take it seriously when i see no drastic development in sensors.
Did canon ever fixed her dynamic range or the noise in lower ISO levels and banding issues as well? NOPE
I'd like to have a FF camera, i was about to buy 5D3 or 6D but i see both of those cameras aren't worthy of their prices, while D600 is a steal!
24-70 2.8 II is a big disappointment (no IS and over expensive)
24-70 f4 IS too (too expensive and since 24-105 exists and it is a GREAT lens for all around use, no reason to buy this 24-70 f4 is)
So i'll stick with my old rebel 600D which is best value of money, plus the magic latern which makes this toy camera, a real camera, and when i feel the need to change equipment, i'll sell everything and move to nikon unless canon starts thinking of making products instead of toys.
Funny...I do not see that I would say a MUST have lens in the bag, just like 70-200 f2.8 IS II for FF.
Until the 24-70 f/2.8 IS shows up, that is. And don't even think about paying less than $3000 for it.
