24-70 f/2.8L IS Update

Something not quite as exciting
I was sent an email suggesting what’s actually going to be happening. Canon is going to release an official 5D Mark II/24-70 f/2.8L kit. It won’t be an IS version of the lens.

That’ll make the 24-70 a lot cheaper.

Is this good or bad news? Well it depends how you look at it. Is this a sign Canon is going to be clearing out stock of the 24-70 to prepare for an updated version? That seems logical.

For now, I’d say no 24-70 f/2.8L IS for PMA. I’ll keep looking and asking though.

  1. Not so sure.

    Revised White paper, page 3:

    “Based on this success, it’s only natural that advanced users are looking for manual aperture control in movie mode, and Canon is listening to constructive comments and feature suggestions. ”

    CANON is not deaf, and LOT of people (including me) requested by any way the manual control in Movie mode, that will allow the EOS 5D Mark II to be used Professionally

  2. And they wrote that this kit would be 5dmkII + 24-70f2,8 non-IS. As stated above in the CR note. So the source of the previous information was wrong and now admits it. Sorry guys!

  3. The EAN code 8714574537771 is listed in Germany for the 5Dmk2 with the normal 24-70 L.

    So probably writing error of Canon Netherlands.
