there seems to be an IS switch at the top for the 24-70. The AF-MF switch has already been seen, so what the button at the top that we cant see? IS
It seems to be a zoom lock, otherwise they usually combine two switches together just like the other two

If they could reduce the weight at the same time, I would be very, very happy, but I guess that is too much to ask.

Its hard to say for sure but as I said the impression I get is that its shorter than the Mk1, given that Nikon reduced the size of there 28-70 2.8 while still adding 4mm to the wide end I'd guess there may well be room for a size reduction.

The new one looks really ugly  ::) ! I think I should get an old 24-70mm as soon as possible :)

The IS switches are usually below the AF/MF switch (see the primes), and the zoom lock is usually on the other side like in this picture (also compare e.g. the 70-300 IS).

Current 24-70L:


The new one looks a bit like the 16-35L:

(or it might just be the shade of black in the picture)

Wouldn't the silver rings on the primes indicate EF-s?

New one looks a bit crappy because of the charcole paint colour.  Who cares what is looks like, if it shoots well that's what is important.

No, because it would have been printed on the lens barrel along with the IS & Ultrasonic labels (see: recent EF-S lens designs like 15-85 & 18-135).

I have a funny feeling that the photos were just someone doing it on photoshop. I mean the lenses look ugly as hell. Canon is more beautiful than that. ( I know someone posted aboved said other wise)

I don't think they are Photoshop, looks like they may get announced tomorrow.

On the picture of 24-70 there is no lens description near the red ring. This is in contrast to existing Canon lenses (see the pictures of the
current 24-70 and 16-35 lenses).

but why 2.8? it is a bit slow for a prime,  except if they are very good wide open. IS is still welcome.

This looks suspicious to me.

Say Canon makes a new 24mm prime. Why make it f/2.8 (rather than f/2) & why add IS?

If Canon makes a 24mm f/2 USM with good IQ, I'll buy it immediately. If it's f/2.8, it's not fast enough relative to the 24-105mm f/4 for me to really consider it, and I'd wait for the Samyang 24mm f/1.4 to be reviewed.
