I returned mine because it was soft.

 ;)

I hope you are joking....please tell me that you are. Please.
 New, fast MFT zooms are sharp and fast....Canon...make it happen.
Does anyone know of any recent reviews with the production lens????????

I wonder when the 5DIII kits w/ new 24-70mm start to ship... (Not available in all markets). I can't wait!

Maybe never?  There was never a kit with the Mark I that I know of.  Not from Canon anyways.

I believe it is a kit option in Asia-Pacific markets. It might not come in one box like the 24-105mm kit (it also may, I don't know yet), but retailers are able to buy 5D3s and 24-70mm together as one at reduced prices, the same as if it was a kit. There have been 24-70mm kits advertised from day one in Australia and New Zealand at least.

Edit/update: Definitely exists as a kit in Australia/NZ at the very least. Last page of the launch press-release. http://www.canon.com.au/About-Canon/News-Events/News-Press-Releases/~/media/News/IMR-EOS5DMkIII/Canon-EOS-5D-Mark-III-press-release.ashx

YESSSSSSSSS...............sooner than I thought. PLEASE BE sharp at f2.8 from 24 through 70, just like his big brother 70-200 f2.8 IS II  ;D ;D ;D

According to the charts I saw, (Yes, I know they are only charts, but that's all I have) it should be just as good or better in regards to sharpness at all apertures throughout the zoom range.

I am looking forward to both 5DIII and 1DX images posted to CR using this new long-awaited Mk2 standard zoom, to see how it compares to my rapidly appreciating old 24-70mm f2.8 L USM lens -> not in terms of sharpness, but rather if the colour looks any different to it's predecessor. Unfortunately as a poor student it is beyond my reach, so I shall be relying upon all of you affluent aspiring amateur aficionados to grab one asap and shoot a few samples for us all to peruse.

No word on this lens at all in Japan. Been to every retailer looking for a hint on when it might arrive here. Funny how Canon is a Japanese company and yet Japan is sometimes the last to receive their products.

Canon 1DX, Canon 5D Mark III, EF 85mm F1.2L II USM, EF 100mm F2.8L IS USM Macro, EF 16-35mm F2.8L II USM, EF 24-70mm F2.8L II USM, EF 70-200mm F2.8L IS II USM, 600EX-RT Speedlites, Profoto Studio Strobes, and a whole lot of boat load of light modifiers.

$2300 is still pretty hard to swallow for f/2.8 zoom.  Just like many people, likely will wait a year or so for a little price drop and Canon rebate..

Yes I agree, it is a little on the expensive side ... but when you compare it with the price of $1900 for Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G ED Autofocus Lens (which I belive is 5 year old lens) EF 24-70 L II is not all that expensive (considering it is the latest technology) ... however, if Canon wants $2300 for EF 24-70 f2.8L II, it better be better than the Nikon 24-70 (at least $400 dollars worth better :))
I am hoping Canon will have a rebate for this lens during Christmas, if not I might just bite the bullet in March 2013 and buy it.

I guess that we need to start rumors about the Mark III now. 
It will have 5th generation IS for sure :D

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

=Brian
In that case I'm rooting for the 7th gen ;D
