As people point out regularly, Canon has never done IS on any EF lens below 100mm . . . nice as it would be, why the intense surprise?
Looking back, the two other rumored lenses have IS? So, we either have to believe that canon suddenly is going to go IS on their normal/wide EF lenses . . . and this one won't have it?
Something doesn't add up. Maybe Iran is behind the photos, they like photochop
idk, IS = more weight, and 2.8 is sufficient in most situations.
having IS would of course be really nice. but the 24-70 (used to?) is really large and heavy.
I would sacrifice IS for less weight and overall size.
I mean, it's still a zoom lens, it already has a lot of flexibility.
having a 24-70 that makes the camera more "normal" is great.
and no name next to the red ring? that doesn't sound like a big deal.there doesn't seem to be space under it anyways?
