Canon 24-70mm f2.8L IS

Got your attention with the IS, didn’t I! :-)

Rumor has it that this puppy is on the way.  The current Canon 24-70mm f2.8 is back-ordered like nobody’s business so that’s a good indicator the rumors are true.

You can almost bank on it that when a new Canon lens is rumored to be coming out, and then the existing one has huge back-orders, the new one is on it’s way soon.

Will it have IS?

That’s the question, isn’t it.  Certainly it would be a coup for Canon.  Nikon’s new 24-70mm f2.8 is nothing short of STELLAR, but is doesn’t have VR.  If Canon releases their new 24-70mm f2.8L with IS, it’ll be a HUGE leg up for Canon.  Of course, that’s also assuming the new version fixes all the existing problems and massive variation sample that the current Canon 24-70mm f2.8L has.

Come on Canon… give it to us!
