OK,... :(  add me to the list of photogs that cancelled their pre-order for the 24-70, twice.  Lets see some images from this 'new' lens before we order for the third time. ! 
A few cameras and lenses and a lot of creative energy and imagination.

Scandinavian Photo, http://www.scandinavianphoto.se/, in Sweden have shipped my 24-70/2.8L II today! So the information that I received from Canon was in error.

Unfortunately, an misunderstanding the 24-70 is not shipped to me  :-[

Explain yourself Human!

I received information from the company that my lens was shipped. But they have not received any lenses yet.

They probably meant that the lenses were being shipped from Canon to to them.  My local retailer lets me know when Canon has notified him of a shipment for a product I have on order, so it can just be a misunderstanding of what they were telling you.

Get the EF 24-70 II. With no other lens in this aperture range you can focus so quick.

Thanks what I am thinking too MST...

Done... Pre-ordered the 24-70mk.ii and returned the Tamron. I had a couple of other issues with the Tammy. I already mentioned AF was off compared to MF, even after AFMA, but what was weirder was even after Setting the lens to MF, and setting focus by hand/MF, half pressing the shutter button would activate AF and it would try and focus for a second then shoot... thereby messing up my MF.

I double checked, it was set to MF. This happened regardless of whether VC was on or off. I found this very weird. And if I was apprehensive about non-Canon lenses... this really did it for me.

I just hope Canon releases a sizeable chunk of 24-70 ii's...  :)

I placed a pre-order for mine in May, so hopefully I will be towards the top of the list on getting the lens here in the States.
