Canon EF 24-70 f/2.8L II Has Made its Way To Retailers
« on: September 02, 2012, 08:19:55 AM »
From Australia
I have received two reports of people buying the new Canon EF 24-70 f/2.8L II from retailers in Australia. The lenses are expected to hit Europe and North America by September 13, 2012.

Initial stock is probably already allocated to preorders, but I’m told to expect quantities to be quite good into October.

I'm excited because I presume the new lens will fit in with Canon's new, more accurate autofocus system as described by Roger Cicala in his article here:

http://www.lensrentals.com/blog/2012/08/autofocus-reality-part-3b-canon-cameras

Short version:
The new lenses incorporate a magnetic rotation detector that creates a true closed loop focus system and greatly enhances focus accuracy when used with cameras that are designed to take advantage of it.  That would be the 5DIII and the 1Dx at this time.
Current bodies:  5D3, 7D, 550D, S100
Favorite lenses: 135 f/2.0 L, 85 f/1.8 200 f/2.8 L, 50 f1.4 Sigma, 40mm pancake, 24-105 L.

Great!  So looking forward to my pre-order being filled and the German rumor proving incorrect.  I am tiring of looking at the world with only a 16-35 mm and a 70-300 mm perspective.

Pff..the 5th gen IS is going to be a total fail.  I'm going to wait for the 6th gen.
