Shouldn't be more than $899. In fact, I'd probably still buy the Tamron for $1,299 even if the Canon were $899.
It needs IS and thus this one needs to be discontinued.
-1....if I have to do it again, I will buy the Canon II over the Tammy
+1 to Dylan.
Opportunities to buy the 24-70 II for people like me occur once in a while (probably require aligning of stars or something like that)- when the need, the resources and the availability at a discounted price all happen at once.
These opportunities should not be missed.
