Screw landscapes! I want this lens for concerts! I love some of the shots I've seen at 14mm.

Who thinks that the benefits of a 14-24mm zoom outweigh the advantages of the prime? Thoughts?

Simple: If you need flexibility, like when shooting weddings or events. 14mm is way to distorted for most uses, but if you have a 24-70 on one ff body and a 14-24 on another, you're covered (just switch to the 70-200 if the situation changes).

Then use a 1dx or wait for the 5d mk4 which might have an actual high iso improvement, and the slower aperture of these zoom won't matter anymore except for carefully staged, thin dof shots or shooting in the dark w/o flash.

My point was that between 14-24mm, you're going to get distortion anyway and that a zoom range of 14-24mm maybe a slight convenience, but an unnecessary feature nonetheless IMO.  When would you really need to walk forward but are unable to walk forward with a 14mm to achieve 15mm-23mm framing?  The 14mm prime has it's uses in weddings but you just need to be mindful of composition in relationship to image skewing (i.e. I like to use it for shooting peripherals such as wedding dress, cake, venue, etc.). I actually like the look of the 14mm a lot more over the 8-15mm fisheye.

This [CR2] rumor said that it will arrive within the next 12 months.

Well, now it's been 15 months.  :'( I couldn't be more annoyed.

I find that inaccurate rumors, especially when they don't turn out or tur out late, really annoy me,unless I don't care about the topic.  I want this lens, and therefore I too am annoyed.  I know it is only  a rumor.

Oh well.

Canon should spend time improving DR before releasing this lens  ::)

"Don't throw rocks if you live in a glass house" - To me, be able to shoot at higher ISO is more important than DR. That's why I jumped from crop to FF.

Also, remember that Canon now announces the "development" of lenses 6 months - 2+ years before you can buy one - think the series II telephotos and the 200-400...

I kinda agree with you.

But still, I want this lens right now! Or a 16-50L, or a 17-40L II.. Just whatever, as long as they finally give us an UWA-zoom with sharp razor sharp sharpness across the frame.

How hard can it be? :P It feels like we've been waiting an eternity for a real "Nikon 14-24-killer", and I do think people would pay solid money for this lens. But still nothing from Canon! .. As CR-guy recently said: "Not even a whisper".

Whay cannot Canon crack this nut? Are they just afraid to hurt the sales of the 14L and 24L?

And what makes the Nikkor lens so great? It's good at shooting lens charts and that's about it. Sharp wide open, sure...but most landscape uses stop down for DOF...and there is lettle difference between it and the 16-35IIL when stopped down. It's a royal PITA to use filters with and it's exessively large and bulky. It's heavily corrected...so it's pretty much useless of shooting people or group shots....which is 80% of professional wide lens use. For architecture, TS-e are a better choice....so I struggle to see where this lens excells...except in the minds of a few lens review sites. As a photographic tool, it doens't seem to master any one genre but detract from most. Landscapes, there are better choices. Group shots, there are far better choices. Architecture, there are far better choices....so what's it good for? Oh yes, shooting lens charts and brick walls....in the mean time a 16-35IIL is generally a far better photographic tool.
