If you rotate the poll results counter-clockwise 90 degrees, seems like a pretty clear message is being sent to Canon.

i really like the 24-70 range... and i completely understand that the newest and best technology comes at a price.. but nearly doubling the price from the mk I version.. i really want to see reviews and comparisons.. expecially since tamron announced a simular product the same day. yes tamrons version wont be L class glass.. or have the weather sealing.. but it'll be 1/2 to 1/3 the cost.. and probably 1/2 the weight. I look forward to the reviews and comparisons.

I still haven't maxed out the capabilities of my 24-70 v 1.  Weight might be an issue, as I am not getting any younger, eh?
All theories are wrong, but some are useful, eh?

Neither have I!!

It's such an amazing lens, and I bet II will be better...
Besides weight, I can't Imagine an average person to be able to tell the difference in the final output.
But then, the average person can't tell the difference between DSLR and iPhone photos anymore.

I would have been really tempted to sell and trade up if it had IS (just for handheld video stabilization).
Without it, not a chance.

They add IS to the 24 and 28... but it's only 2.8.
If it's 2.8, it might as well be part of the 24-70 II - since it sports "prime-like" quality through the zoom range.

I don't get it, bad move Canon.

What they really need is a 12-24L IS and 24-70L IS.
Those two lenses on FF, with the added range on a crop - sounds like a no-brainer money machine.
