Why wouldn't you want IS?  If you don't want to use it, you can always turn it off.

Pricier, potentially bulkier/heavier, battery hog if used, and compromised optical quality... could be disadvantages. In reality it's mostly price.

Haha, love that goats pic, scaleusa...  ;D

Heh, Canon has never been modest about their prices.  I expect to pay an arm and a leg, IS or not ;)

Woops, I think that was in response to dilbert's message.  I guess it was ripe for a "PMFJI", so I'd like to take this time to use my PMFJI retroactively :)

And thanks!

It would be a 24-70mm f/2.8L IS or (or maybe and?) a 24-70mm f/2.8L II, since there's no current/MkI version of that lens with IS.  I, for one, would prefer IS to go along with improved coatings and optics.

the whole world is waiting for 24-70 f2.8L IS. seriously. not 24-70 f2.8L II - what is that? there will zero people going to buy that just to get a little improvement in IQ. 24-70 f2.8L already a fantastic lens.

A reason that I can see why Canon might not build an IS version is that one of the main uses of the 24-70 f/2.8 is event photography - a lot of wedding photographers use it.  To a large degree they need to take into account motion blur from subjects moving around - while not action photography, a lot of the time there is a need to shoot at shutter speeds where IS will not be of benefit on a 70mm lens.  (This is rather different from the 24-105mm f/4 which is more of a general purpose lens.)  The requirement for IS is rather different with the 70-200mm f/2.8, where it is often desirable to shoot at shutter speeds where IS is a necessity - therefor pros are happy to shell out the extra money for the IS version.

I've been holding off for the MK2 version of this lens and the wait is killing me. IS or non-IS I'm getting the lens.
Hopefully they'll release both but I don't think someone would need IS at 70mm. It would just add way more weight to beautiful glass.

Either way it'll be a great lens IS or non

The Mark I of this lens is so good, I don't see why they are releasing a MarkII without IS.  With video being a big focus with DSLR, I think IS is becoming a requirement at this focal length in a zoom...

If they plan to match and beat Nikon's 24-70, they need IS and internal zoom/focus. I'd even prefer having internal zooming and focusing before IS. But that's just me.  ;)
