I can see the collective eye rolls about this post already. I post about 2% of the stuff that comes in about this lens, I understand you’re all sick of reading about it.</p>
Methinks you worry too much Craig.
If we wanted fully established facts about Canon equipment
we'd visit Canon's website daily like I do this site.
(Canon's site gets my visit about once a year.)
I read this website to learn about conjecture, fantasy
and faint hope of magical equipment.
I'd rather hear more rumors than less.
This is a respectful request that you increase the rumor reporting
on the 24-70 (and everything else) from 2% to 50 percent.
with my best wishes.
PS Since you probably don't hear it enough -
THANK YOU Craig for your tireless efforts to
keep us informed.
I am grateful -- daily.
