The IQ will decide if it makes up for not having IS. Surely there is a level of IQ that people would give up IS for.

For sure - the 24-105 has IS, and requiring exactly f/2.8 with IS while being unable to compensate otherwise is a rare case indeed. Class leading IQ on the other hand would do its thing in every single picture.
How many of the customers would actually use it at shutter speeds where IS makes a difference? Subject motion and/or the use of those new RT-flashes oder bigger units come to mind.

Probably video shooters would appreciate the IS.  I'm guessing.

For video I'd consider IS more a liability then a boon - it can't seperate wanted from unwanted motion!
Any sort of rig gives you better results, even for relatively little money, and shooting at f/2.8 asks for that anyway.

I only give you some hints. I don´t describe the technical and optical problems and let out a lot of informations.

I don´t give you any informations what prototype(s) hits the market.

I don´t say anything before Canon announce the introduction of the lens for the first time.

And I don´t post pictures made with the 1D X, 1 Ds Mark III, 5D Mark III and 5D Mark II.

This website lives form hints gives by photographers or the producers.

If they change it to have IS, I don't care if we need to wait another year for it.

24-70 II for over 2 grand with no IS is a joke imo.


If this lens is to much, you can always try out the Tamron with IS for less. Friend of mine did, after 1 week of testing....the lens went back to BH and he asked for full refund.

Good luck

The official release date from Canon, http://www.canon.co.uk/About_Us/Press_Centre/Press_Releases/Consumer_News/Cameras_Accessories/Updated_sales_start_date_EF_24_70mm_lens.aspx, is September 2012. But the lens has so far been delayed twice...

That page is blank now....

Strange, I have included a screen dump.
