Back to the point I think.

As Tamron have just released their 24-70 with IS, Canon may be seen as not having the best product. We don’t know about the IQ on the Tamron, but we do know that Tamron are getting better. The Tamron 70-300 has a much better IQ and is cheaper than the Canon (non-L), this in my opinion was what forced Canon to respond with an L version.

Will be interesting to see the IQ of the Tamron and If Canon respond with an IS version of this lens.

If I wanted to trade my good and sharp copy of the 24-105 for a good and sharp copy of the current 24-70 would I be better of to do this now or will the market be swamped once the upgrade (might) be released bringing used prices down? Assuming of course the "upgrade" doesn't turn out to be a complete dud which is always possible.

Quite odd that the primes are the ones with IS...I guess I'll (eventually) take one of them instead, just not sure which.

I'll be watching out for news of the Tamron zoom's performance as well.  It looks markedly bigger though (but less than a kilogram isn't really that much - maybe for a day's shooting).

Maybe not the best Jpeg but no fake, though.
As I said:
I looked to the File information in PS and I saw that this image was modified many times in:
- June 2011
- October 2011
- November 2011
If this image is a fake, then why appeared this fake not earlier in net?!

Anyway ... no IS. Very strange, Canon.

From Canon's release, the differences between version II and I of the Canon EF 24-70 f/2.8L :

- Reduced CA at wide angle edges/corners
- High resolution and contrast in images, crisp clear edges around subjects (may or may not be an upgrade)
- Optimized lens coatings: color balance improvement, less ghosting, less spherical aberration.
- Circular nine-blade diaphragm (instead of 8-blade; probably rounded aperture blades as well)
- Improved build quality (more durable, better weathersealing)
- Smaller / less heavy
- 82mm filter (instead of 77mm)

I looks that the II vers. is much sharper in the corners as the I vers.
I will be interesting how the new Tamron will perform. Is there a MTF Chart from the new Tamron around?

I don't see any price listed in their press release or on their website. Can you link the source?

Honestly it just looks like someone took a photo of that lens and photoshopped it. In fact that's exactaly what happened.

Oops, I believe its time for you to go away now.
