Is it thinkable to wait for a 24-70 2.8L IS, or maybe a 22-70 2.8L IS, as a replacement for the 24-70 2.8L ?

Sure, it's thinkable.  Lots of things are thinkable, like waiting for pigs to fly or hell to freeze over.  As stated above, a replacement for the 24-70mm has been rumored for a long time.  If you don't need the lens now, you can wait.  If you need it, buy what's available.  Given recent history, even if Canon annonuces the lens tomorrow, you might still have to wait a year to actually get one.

My point is that you can certainly wait, and for some it makes sense to wait.  But be aware that you might have a LONG wait.  Regarding the 22-70mm range, the idea seems plausible given that the predecessor to the current lens was a 28-70mm f/2.8L.  But, a while back Canon patented a 24-70mm f/2.8L design (which would thus be a Mk II version) - it did not include IS.  So, a straight 24-70mm f/2.8L II is most likely.  Lots of folks are hoping for an IS version of the lens, of course.

Real thanks now !
And i could replace my answer in context, i do not wait for this lens so urgently, i actually use a 15-85 IS as trans-standard lens ans i'm quite happy using it. But in order to upgrade this lens, i really think about a 24-70. Especially because i have a 10-22, and a 70-200 2.8L, it could be a great solution to full fill all ranges.

I'd stick with the 15-85mm, most likely.  On APS-C, that lens outperforms the current 24-70mm f/2.8L (with the exception of vignetting).  A new 24-70mm would have to be a significant optical upgrade and add IS for it to be worthwhile switching from the 15-85mm (unless you go FF).

I had the chance to test the actual 24-70 on my 7D, and you're partially right, i wasn't outstand by it. But what a sharpness, the L serie is so impressive on that point.

"The line would include a 'surprise'". So I assume it's a new feature and not a new lens to go with a new body. I hope that "surprise" is not the 3rd use of that awesome 9-pt AF module... ;P

Maybe the surprise will be the elimination of the Direct Print button...   ::)

I am waiting for the UPS man to deliver my 8-15 this morning.  I have always loved fisheye, but this will be my first "circular" fisheye.

What I will spend the weekend doing is seeing if the Full Frame 15mm image produced is better than the Sigma 15mm fisheye I already have.  It does of course have the advantage of the zoom, and also the ability to still be a fisheye on a crop camera (I have a 5DII and a 7D), but to me 95% of the shooting with this lens will be 15mm on a FF camera, and that is where I need image quality. 

To date I have not seen anyone compare it to the existing Canon 15mm or the Sigma 15mm.  You can actually buy Sigmas 15mm and 8mm for less than the 8-15, so the 8-15 had better perform.

I love (mostly) DigitalRev, and would call it something between a review and entertainment.

That combination works excellently. The 24-70 is a fantastic lens on crop or not.

please don't put dirty thoughts into canon's head ...

I know there are those out there who desperately want GPS tagging ... but I really hope that's not a surprise.  I also hope the surprise isn't "in-camera filters" ...

We're starting to see some heavy discounting at Futureshop and Henry's. The 5D2 was $3600 with a 24-105 IS USM L, went down to $3400 last week and is now at $3000:

Same package at Henry's:
