Call Canon and order one. I hope you know what you are doing, and have the right tools. Some front elements are just glass, but some must be adjusted to eliminate decentering.

Haven't there been any rumors of new versions of the EF 200/2.8L (preferably with IS) or 300/4L IS? In my opinion they are the lenses I would find most interesting. New supertele lenses are fun to read about, and maybe interesting for the professional users, but I really can't afford that kind of luxury.

The zoom range of the 24-70 sucks. I hope to see it replaced with a f2.8 version of the 24-105mm f4 to allow some focal length overlap in the f/2.8 series of zooms.
No, this is a bad idea. The 24-105 is a compromise optically and a poor performer compared to either of the 24-70 lenses.

What I'd like to see is a portrait zoom lens. Right now for portrait work the 24-70 and the 70-200 don't quite cover the sensible working distances on their own. Something like a 45-105 f/2.8 would be a super useful lens for those too lazy to swap lenses!

Of course, the 24-70 2.8 on a crop sensor isn't far off this!

The 24-105 F4 is a great all rounder, and I have been using this lens for many years (first the mk1 and more recently the mk2). The 24-70 F2.8 ii is a better lens optically, but even so I find that I use the 24-105 more frequently because its zoom range is better and this makes it a great walkabout lens. Also it has image stabilisation which is useful in certain situations.
When I am looking for the optimum image quality I usually know what I am going to be photographing in advance so I tend to use prime lenses for this type of work. The 24-70 F2.8 ii is a great lens but it was very expensive and I am starting to ask myself whether I really need it.

I am somewhat surprised that the thought of a 24-105 2.8 is never discussed. I 'm no technical expert but I think this would sell plenty of units, especially with video shooters. Keep the 4.0 as part of kits.
If 24 is too short and optically a challenge, even 35-105 would work.

Tamron has a 28-105 2.8 lens since the film days. By the way it still works (at least a friend's 28-105 2.8 Tamron works with his 6D)

Not a chance of replacing the 28 - 300mm IS L, it was only released in 2004 replacing the 35 - 350mm version, and is a good performer. How on earth do you think they could improve it realistically?
IS is 3rd generation, and the amount of glass required and pro spec body means it's going to weigh quite a bit.
There are quite a few lenses I'd like to see replaced before this one, the 24 - 70mm f/2.8 L and a new decent performing wide angle too!
I don't know how they could realistically improve it really. I rented one for 30 days from lensrentals.com for my honeymoon to the Canadian Rockies and loved it, in spite of the weight. I did find myself wishing many times that it was faster.

I am a simi-pro photographer and am looking into purchasing a good tele-zoom.

I currently own the EF 50mm f/1.2L USM, EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM and the EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM. These lenses are mounted on a full frame 5d (mk1) and the 1.6 cropped Xsi. (I'm waiting for the 5D III to be released before I upgrade bodies)

I found the 28-300 L to be a great "all around" lens. I loved the reach of that 300mm (being that I was used to a reach of only 200) and 28mm was wide enough I didn't have to carry additional lenses. I am seriously concidering the new EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM... I just wish it was a little wider to keep from having to swap out lenses mid shoot. I could care less about the yet to be released 70-300 because of the slow speed.

So... I was in "wishfull thinking land" hoping that there might be a faster version of the 28-300 in the works. But I guess that's just a pipe dream. I'll probably end up buying the new 70-200 with an extender... I'll still need something for that mid-range though. I guess I'll worry about that if and when they release a new 24-70.

As for your decent wide angle hopes... I know it's only 16mm, but I really enjoy my EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM.

Keep on clicking...
The EF-S 55-250 STM is phenomenal; cheap and really good.

I am an amateur photographer and recently got very interested in Bird photography.
Right now I have very constrained gear in a 550D, 70-200 F4L IS.

I do not like the 18MP sensor 550D has as it is too noisy above 800 ISO along with horrible noise in shadows.
Since Canon 7D has the same sensor, I do not want to buy 7D. Waiting for 7D mk II with high hopes is the only thing I can do.

On lens part, I thought of buying a 100-400 L but then decided not to seeing rumors about the new 100-400 floating around.

Is it wise to pony up and save for next 100-400 L ?


Thanks,
Have you considered buying a used 400 F5.6? It's very uncommon to fill the frame with birds, so it's generally extra money that you pay for the 100-400.

I'm still waiting for a canon response to the 150-600 lenses from Sigma and Tamron. Rumors were strong last fall, but even those seem to have disappeared. Perhaps at photokina we'll see some hope? Don't need L quality or price and those other two are looking pretty good.
