+ 100
Making the 24-70 2.8 L an IS would imo be the same like offering a 24 105 L IS at F 2.8 both would be as expensive as a 70-200 L II IS USM. The 24-105 would surely cost even more. But a lense is bought for a decade. That is no big investment at least. If it costs $ 1000 more that would make 8-10 bucks a month. One (huge) pizza less. Or 1,5 package of cigarettes (if you are a smoker here in germany)

Ralph

If the 24-105 became a 16-105 f/2.8 then the 16-35, the 17-40, the 17-55 and the 24-70 could be withdrawn - and the extra for the one lens would be more than offset by the savings on a second lens  ;D ;D ;D

It will be an important 1/3 when putting it on a non 1.3  series 1 with a 1.4 converter as you will lose the AF

Exactly. There was a great deal recently on a local used EF 500mm f/4.5L.  For the price, I could live without IS and live with the electro-focus like my 85L II, but the loss of AF with a TC was a deal breaker.

Check this out... http://www.computeruniverse.net/products/e90391547/canon-eos-60d-body-schwarz.asp

Pay attention to this:
"not available
Product is no longer available. Only listed for information purposes."

Can this mean that Canon will release the EOS 70D sooner than later? Maybe during the CES?

**********************

Regarding the EOS 7D, they seem to be selling the last available units. http://www.computeruniverse.net/products/e90346353/canon-eos-7d-body.asp

Pay attention to this:
"Remaining stock
Remaining stock. Ready for shipping within, ready for shipping within 2-3 business days"


This online shop is a reference in Europe.

The 7D body is out as well, now.

Several 60D and 7D kits are listed as In Stock or Ships in 2-3 Days.  I'd say all the above means is that the vendor hasn't sold very many of the body only versions compared to the kits with lens, so they've decided to stop selling the body only version.
