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

That's what I'm waiting for, as well!

In the meantime, I'll (more than) make do with my 24-105 and fast primes within the 24-70's FL range ...

That's nearly worth buying and selling on eBay... is it?

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).
;D

Yeah... if it were instant, like they have been before, I'd have ordered and shipped to Canada.

Ordered mine last night.  Multi-daily visits to CR certain pays off.

Another $400 off and add IS and I might be interested.  But the 24-70/2 OS rumor has me in a "wait and see" mode.

Since its going for $1999 everywhere...and you arent offering a warranty, you'd have to mark down to what, $1900ish? Take away Ebays fees and congrats, you made maybe $50.

Now, if you can resell on a forum like FM or POTN for $1900, then yeah, there is money to be made

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

TOM
No, it means like every lens Canon has released in the last year (24mm, 28mm, 35mm, 24-70f/4 IS, etc), they realized they overpriced by about 20-25% of what the market will pay. The 24-70 should have been $1999 from the start, and they are adjusting their prices to reflect that.

If you see this lens at <$1600 without rebates, then yeah, maybe they are bringing out an IS version

Likewise, I dislike dealing with MIR. Even though, I did purchase the 135mm under the current Canon lens sale.

This is FOR REAL.  I just hung up with customer support and was credited $300 on my purchase of this lens last week.   

THANKS CANON RUMORS for putting $300 back in my pocket !!!

He still can get Tamron 24-70 VC for 1.3K.  It's sharper than Canon 24-70 MK1 and comes with VC though it's not as sharp as Canon 24-70 MK2.  He also could wait for Sigma 24-70 f/2 OS.  I believe Canon 24-70 IS version will be priced about 2.8K.
