    EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM II

    The rumors have landed. The new 70-200 II has been announced. Let's see how this baby stacks up to the original.

    I wish they'd announce an IS version of the 24-70mm, or have they?

    I can't find anything as of yet. That's the next one rumored to drop any time soon. That's the one I won't be able to live without.

    Sure, if you're serious. My copy is amazing, so I'm in no hurry to unload it. I will wait and see how the reviews of the new lens go before I jump on it. But if you're still interested at that time, I'll give you first dibs. :)

    Let me know (no hurry) the camera shop I go to talked me out of the 70-200 due to the new one coming out. So I bought the 50d and 17-40l but I think the original verision would due me just fine! But I am very interested in your lens.

    Me neither. That's one that's going to itch away at me like a festering sore until I lay my hands on one.

    The MTF charts look good. Will be curious to see the what the actual focal length on the long end is at shorter focusing distances. Hope they didn't botch it up like Nikon did with their newest version.

    I know what you mean.

    Heck, even the 70-200 is starting to nag at me already and I really don't need it as my current lens works wonderfully. :) I am starting to despise those crack dealers at Canon. :D

    That's the first thing I thought of two when I read the announcement. I wondered if Canon pooched the new lens like Nikon did with theirs.
