When Canon launched the 24-70 II didn't they state that the lens doesn't have IS in order to optimise IQ.

If I'm right and they did state this is there any truth in it ?

Personally I think that is baloney and was marketing aimed at people on the fence to help them justify spending the money for the non-IS version.  The Canon 100mm f/2.8L IS Macro is one of the sharpest lenses Canon makes, and it also has one of the most advanced IS systems!  The 70-200 f/2.8L II IS is also razor sharp and has IS, too.

as good as the Canon 24-70 II is...  a nice lens

the missing I.S.   ...is covered by 'errors and omissions...' clause in their insurance.

I bought and returned the 24-70 II ...almost sharp enough @ 70... not quite... for the price
BUT the missing I.S. just killed it for me.....
it would be used RIGHT WHERE the I.S. needs to kick-in.... so I get that shot....
silly not to have this available..

I will wait..
and that may include a new Sigma 24-70-ish  range too.......the 35 f1.4 wiped my (sold) 35L ....
Sigma knows how to please...

I believe Canon issued the non-I.S. first because it wouldn't sell...later
when the one with I.S. was available

just my thought

I'm really hoping this is the case.  I've been thinking about trading in my fairly new 24-105 5D3 kit lens towards a 24-70 II, but considering the hit I'll take on the trade-in, I feel compelled to keep using it in the hopes that a 24-70 II with IS is in the nearish future.  The "ish" after "near" is a concern though.

I wouldn't worry. It will take less that 10 years... probably  ;D
