I have $ allocated if they release a 24-70 II IS!
It's looking like the 24-70mm II won't have IS. I didn't think it would even before seeing this (it's too short a focal length):
Not 'too short' a focal length as such. The EF-S 17-55mm is the closest crop version featuring IS and can shoot as low as 1/2 a second at f/2.8! This could be really beneficial in an 'all rounder' such as this.
