As was mentioned elsewhere, it's 82mm diameter and lacks a lens description near the red ring.

Surely a coincidence that Tamron have announced theirs today (with their image stabilisation)

It might be one of the prototypes though, but it doesn't seem to be a production-ready version.

No IS at least on this version...sigh...

No IS?

I would like to consider the Tamron 24-70 f2.8 with image stabilization that was announced today. Unless the Canon IQ blows us away...

prototype or fake? it's a little strange that there is no writing by the red ring.

Haha. Right. I came here immediately because I heard about the Tamron. And what do I see?... Canon picture. Only thing... no IS. Lame! I will seriously look to the Tamron. Probably save 800 bucks. I loved my 17-50 on my 40D.

Tamron certainly did a good job in introducing IS (VC) in their new 24-70. The weight is 825g versus Canon 24-70L's 950g. Hope the IQ is good

Thanks! See it all now. 24, 28 and 24-70. Strangest thing a 24 and 28 prime both with IS. And no IS in the 24-70. I don't get it.

What's the second switch?

Canon thinks that IS is important on a new 24mm prime but won't even consider making IS available as an option on the 24-70mm?  Please Canon, give us a choice!  Wouldn't it be better to take our money rather than seeing it go to Tamron???

The new IS on the 70-200 II rocks.  It is very sad that we will not have that option on the new 24-70.  I am very dissappointed.  VERY!!!!!   >:(

The second switch could be a focus limiter (but not necessary on this lens) and therefore most likely and hopefully for IS.
