Canon USA pricing is now official, and it looks like a significant price bump for the Canon EF 24-70 f/2.8L II. It better be the best built, best focusing and have the best optical quality of any Canon zoom lens!

Available April 2012
EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM $2299

Available June 2012
EF 24mm f/2.8 IS USM $849
EF 28mm f/2.8 IS USM $799

I am surprised the 24mm and 28mm are so closely priced. I figured the 24mm would cost a considerable amount more. These primes are NOT priced for the mass market, I’d love to hear the reason for these two lenses and their price point.
