I have one. I think it's an excellent lens- two main improvements would make it top-notch:

1) weather sealing (a piece of hair/long dust somehow got behind the rear element of mine while outside on a windy day- kind of aggravating but I can't seem to see it in pictures at least, so that's a relief)

2) slight IQ improvement/less purple fringing at 1.4 (at 1.8 and above it's great- peaking around 2.8 in my opinion)

Weather sealing was one of the main reason I did not get the existing model.  I am anxious to see the new version annouced though!  UNless the new 24-70 II is so good that it will make us forget about prime!

I don't think a f2.8 lens will make you forget about a f1.4 one due to the noticeable difference in dof...

Maybe, but it would make for a nice consolation prize in the mean time  :P :P :P

The current 35L is so good, I'm not sure there is much need of improvement. There are other lenses that need more of an update such as the 50 F1.4 or the 17-40L.

Hello, I am willing to get the 35L 1.4, but i have read that there is one Version 2 is coming soon; how much money do you think it will be on the market? beacause seeing the price of the new 24-70 is almost 1000USD of difference.

Regards,

Miguel
