curious, i hear that it has internal focusing but yet it has a lock for transport?
larger glass but lighter in weight?
IS isn't needed for this range but non L's 24 & 28 are released at the same time with it?
i'm confused...

Internal focusing is not the same as internal zoom. I'd guess it extends while zooming.

How about: i plan to buy it when the price comes down a bit, and IS isn't really necessary for this type of lens.

That is fine, and looking at the polls you will be one of the 6% who don't need IS.

I'm always happy to be the 1%   :D
