Great news.  It's ok if it takes another 18 months to a cpl of years to be released...I'm still saving for the 24-70II, lol.  I doubt very much it will be cheap, but I don't want it to be either.  If it's going to follow the 70-200 2.8II and the 24-70II, I want it to be superb.  :)

This and that....... So much for comparison between Nikon and Canon UW lenses.  :o It's hard to please people now a days.

The good thing is that Canon is adding a new range in their lens line up, and thats all that matters for now. I'm really looking forward to the release of this lens.  8)

I virtually never use a rectilinear ultra-wide anymore.  I prefer my Sigma 15mm fisheye.

I've thought seriously about selling my 17-40L (which I consider to be a good lens, by the way) and I already gave away a 10-22 in favor of a Tokina 10-17 zoom fisheye.  I've kept the 17-40L mostly because I already have it, and it's useful once in a great while.

Oh man I would love this lens if it's anything like the Nikon version.

Now I have a decision to make.  Get a 10-22mm now have fun with it. When the 14-24 comes out see how it is and sell the 10-22 for it. Or wait for the 14-24 and get the 70-200 mkii and have fun with that.

My vote is for the 70-200 2.8II. ;)

Finally!

I guess this may well be part of the Nikon-Canon patent swapping rumors we read about some time back.

Now, we'll like to see Canon make some headway in the low ISO sensor dynamic range department for non-Exmor sensors.

You forgot to post the obligatory $1900 price tag :(

This sounds like a very good FF lens and a wicked crop-body lens . . . seriously though, if we're super lucky it'll be $1400

I'm afraid that this recipe is something that Nikon / Sony won't share with others. :P

Canon will probably have to find their own solution when it comes to improving their sensor tech.

Until then, I'll be sticking with my 5D2.
