It looks like the "IS" is right around the corner.

 or maybe Canon has high-fever from Sony A7 & A7R ::) ::) ::)

Don't worry Mr. Canon, I still have  itch for 300 f2.8 IS II

Woohoo!  Cancelled my earlier Amazon order that was already delayed 2-4 weeks, and got the same $1699 price (after rebate) and 4% ($80) back in B&H store credit! 

Thanks all!

I just finished a live chat with B&H.
I bought from them the 24-70 II for $2300 with the Canon rebate program on October 7th and delivered on October 11th.
Now, they have the $300 price deal.  So, I contacted B&H over live chat, and they agreed to issue an e-gift card.
Sweet!
No hassle, straight forward.  Fast.  Good service from B&H.

This is a right price for me.  However, I will just wait for 24-70 f/2.8 IS @ 2.5K. :)

Gonna be a long wait (unless you believe M.ST, which would raise the number of believers to two, you plus himself).

A great deal, sorry I can't take advantage of it.  If I had a true need for the lens I would snap one up, no doubt.  Looks like the price is finally getting more reasonable.

lol.  The number of believer is still one.  I am happy with my Tamron 24-70 VC for now.  Without IS feature which I like, I am not going to buy the Canon 24-70 MK2.  However, 24-70 IS version will be on my shopping list.  Of cause that depends on when Canon is going to release the IS version and how good Sigma 24-70 f/2 will be.  Anyway, we will see.

AGHH! considering the price I paid I'd be totally sick if I hadn't at least gotten a ton of use of out it over the past year including on two special trips.

Many but anyone who can afford it should jump on this ASAP!

are you sure about this....?

see attached ....from your link

Add it to your cart then go through the checkout process, and you'll see the $1999 price.

I am assuming then that..... THE - additional (= $1699 total) - REBATE of $300 comes from a later pdf fill-in and send?   after purchase

thanks
if this is the case

NOTE: I suppose this means the I.S. version is getting ready?....
