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
If it is as sharp as the 70-200 f2.8 L IS II, than I think it is worth its money ... but I am greedy I want more sharpness than the 70-200 f2.8 L IS II in 24-70 f2.8 L II ;D

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

Sorry, to break it to you but 7th gen has FX mount.

Ha ha ha ... good one ... but if 7th gen has FX mount, I'll just have to buy D800 MK V ;D

Its way to much money.. Its wont even focus with the lenses cap on for my night shots.  8) Well ok maybe someday if I get a big tax return.

Can someone tell why the lens image on the box has silver ring instead of standard red ring for L type lens?

$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..

I agree. I think the 70-200L IS II came out at $2499. I waited a year, and there were multiple sales, I bought one in a combination promotion, and my price on that lens was around $2000.

I suspect you'll be able to pick the 24-70L II for under $2000 when the sales start. Still pricey though

I think the image on the box is a black and white image - the red ring looks like silver in a B&W image.

I do not think Canon has released a product recently that did not have at least one issue with it. Even the 1D X required a new firmware.

I would wait to see what is wrong with this lens, let them fix it, and then buy that one!

Of course, Canon might surprise us.....
1D X + backup + different L lenses etc.

My EF 24-70 II is very sharp and you can focus very quick with it.

But I don´t know how big are the fabrication tolerances from Canon.

Same here.  5DIII, 70-200 2.8II, 100 2.8L, 16-35II, 600EX, etc, etc.  I didn't mind the pushbacks at all...gave me time to save for the 24-70II.   ;) 8)

You have one already !?!?

Where are you located?  The United States?  If so, which state?  Where did you get the lens from?

Just wonder when I'll get mine from Adorama.
