    From CPS/CPN


    <span style="font-family: sans-serif; font-size: x-small;"]Hello Andy,

    <span style="font-family: sans-serif; font-size: x-small;"]I have not heard the rumor about the 70-200 IS. Do not believe anything unless you see it on the official Canon website.

    <span style="font-family: sans-serif; font-size: x-small;"]I am not sure about the labels. You may want to email service or CPS to find out the answer.

    Well, that was useless. :-)


    I think we should all just wait and be surprised by Canon if they decide to develop something.

    I used my 70-200 f/2.8 IS at the zoo as the walk around lens for kids/animals.


    Still love it, even if it may or may not be discontinued :P

    So CR is saying that possibly a newer version is coming in late August and possibly a 24-70 with IS!?





    So... now I'm torn if I should wait and see as I'm looking to purchase at least the 70-200 2.8 IS soon, and possible the 24-70 fairly soon after!?

    We'll I recently bought both of these lenses and they are ridiculously sharp. Except for lens flare on 24-70 I don't really need any improvements in these lenses. I expect the new versions will be substantially more expensive, so I'll be fine if they replace them. Actually I'll probably feel pretty good about it ($$).

    According to Canon's Press Release about a new two-axis IS system, we can suppose that the 70-200 f/2.8 IS will be the first lens to benefit from the upgrade. This would explain all the fuss about it being either delisted or very difficult to obtain.

    You beat me to it I was gonna suggest the same thing based on the info at http://www.the-digital-picture.com/Canon-News/Canon-Hybrid-Image-Stabilizer.aspx. Sounds cool.....and expensive. How about a Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L HIS USM?

    Re: 70-200



    I'm wondering if the 2.8 IS will come down in price if they announce the 2.8 IS II ... decisions.. wait or not to wait.





    Stinks when you have a bunch of cash burning a hole in your pocket at the same time you want the 24-70 and 70-200.. but the 24-70 IS would be sweet!
