To further lend weight to some of the lens rumors, you may want to post the patents for these lenses.  ;)

For example, in here: http://www.canonrumors.com/2009/12/canon-lens-patents-review/, you'll find patents for 14-24 f/2.8L, 60 f/2.8 IS macro and 70-200 f/2.8 IS Mk2. The last has already been released, so I'm sure we'll see the 14-24 and 60 macro surfacing sooner than later.

Patents for other lenses (e.g. 17-55 f/2 IS) can be found at:

I'm on the road right now so I'll have to do this later, but thanks for the suggestion. I will propably dig out the actual patents, since some have been just unverified rumors.

I want the EF 24-70 f/2.8L IS, but think it will easily be $700 more since it will have IS.

Why is it that so many people want an EF 24-70mm lens with IS ?

There's been reports of QC issues with the current EF 24-70mm (focusing problems, etc.).

Also, an H-IS version of this mid-range zoom would give you more control in low-light situations.

Two more reasons:
1-If it was H-IS, it would be even better for video, and video seems to be big for Canon (and growing for that matter).

2-Some people like to use that nice sharp lens stopped down sometimes (say for landscape), but they don't always have a tripod (happens to me all the time); IS could be really handy in a situation like that.  It is basically taking one of the most used lenses, and giving it one more tool.

So Canon should design a EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L USM II. (I'd buy one, BTW, if it's significantly  better than the current 24-70...)

Also, an H-IS version of this mid-range zoom would give you more control in low-light situations.

As I have pointed out earlier on the CR blog, IS doesn't help you one tiny bit if your subject's moving. Yes, that might happen...

PLEASE tell me why Canon are ignoring the calls for an updated 24-70 2.8 (or new 24-105 2.8)? Surely there must be enough demand for this fabled improved lens to be developed!?!?

mike, I would suspect that it's because people haven't been clamoring for a 24-70 L IS until fairly recently ... and it's still not clear to me if there's actually a lot of people out there clamoring for it, or if it's just on the CR forums.  the 24-70 L is one of the first lenses that anyone who goes full-frame gets, so basically everyone has to decide to upgrade to a 24-70 L IS that costs in the $2K range

I would think that there are three things that determine the timetable for development and release of such a lens:

1. market demand
2. current projects competing for development resources
3. profit goals for original lens to be replaced

unless there is massive and sustained demand for it, canon will probably take its time clearing out the projects it has already planned off its plate before putting a redesign of the 24-70 into the queue.

Actually, a 24-70mm 2.8L IS lens has been on wish lists since before 2008 (possibly 2007). If you do a search, you'll see that there has been speculation about that lens for quite some time. Each year it would seem there's some sort of rumor about a fabled 24-70 2.8L IS lens that is in "development" or "pre-production" and is "ready for public release" usually around big events like Photokina yet there has always been disappointment. I had hoped that this year would be different but alas it seems it's another year for big wishes and bigger disappointments.

I thought the Hybrid IS of the 100mm macro was specifically designed for that situation - where you are rotating the lens, but not moving it up or down, in order to follow a subject.

No, that would be more commonly referred to as "panning".
Canon's Hybrid IS is designed to compensate accidental camera movement and doing so not only for "shift" movements as the "classic" IS does, but also for rotational movements.

So maybe not the Hybrid IS, but have you heard of Mode 2 IS?  It detects panning and shuts down the IS function in the direction of the intended movement.  Some discussion of that here, plus an example image:

Don't really see any reason this wouldn't work for movies.  Image stabilizers are used in some video cameras after all.  Hope I'm not misunderstanding what you mean.
