Delivery to the CPS merchants in Germany starts definetely next week. This is CR3 and reported a few times in the last two days by Canon Germany (CPS) and Canon Europe (CPS).

But I don´t think that Canon is able to fulfill all preorders. CPS members (platinum) are the first who get the lens.

I read a lot of IS. => You don´t need an IS. I am happy with my prototype of the lens without IS. If you want the best image quality and you shoot architecture, landscapes or available light use a good tripod with a gearhead like the Manfrotto 405. If you want to make videos get a tripod with a good video head. For sports, weddings and travelling you don´t need an IS.

-1........Without tripod, "IS" can be usefull for low light shot - shutter speed 1/40 or slower.
Yup ... mere mortals like me need IS, coz I hate climbing sand dunes in the desert with a tripod in my hand ... the same applies during my family vacations ... most of my vacations are in a tour bus, sightseeing new places and it is convenient to have IS ... that is the reason why I like 24-105 L IS ... but if  24-70 f/2.8 had IS I can do so much more with the DOF.
I know it is wishful thinking but it would be AWESOME if Canon made 24-105 f/2.8 L IS;D

I take 2  ;D

We'll have them both in twenty years when finally sensors won't be flat but spherical like lenses are :)

Hmmm ... 35-85 f2 L IS? if that comes true, Canon will price it so much that I'd have to sell my family jewels ;D
