this looks a lot like the 16-35 II, which is also a 82mm front. i don't know enough to say if this picture is real or not, but if it is, i am sure this is an internal zooming lens, which would be reason enough for me to buy. and it they make the image at 2.8 sharp, like it is in the 70-200 II, because i pretty much only shoot wide open aperture, i am convinced. and, if they make this lens parafocal (focus stays as you zoom in and out), i will love you Canon. because i use my lenses for filming mostly, especially now that i added the C300 to my stable.
