January 2010

Date: 11/17/2009
Source: CR

Rating: 2.5/5, Votes: 2

CR has received an email stating January 2010 is the date:

“Yes, it has been delayed until January now, this is the second time this has happened although this time not due to a technical issues but more marketing. If everything goes to plan (which hardly happens to be honest), January will be a killer month for announcements:

1Ds Mark IV together with the new duo of high end lenses. The 70-200 2.8 IS II and of course the 24-70 II IS.”

They rate it as CR1 - their lowest rating - click the source link below for their response.

Possible Eye Witness Account

Rating: 1/5, Votes: 1

According to a POTN poster (near the bottom of the page on the link below):

ok peeps, went to a big filipino event today, had a chance to cover it for a friends newspaper and guess what i saw?

YES its coming 24-70L IS was mounted and was already snapping...didnt get a chance to really talk to the guy, just that he confirmed that what he had was a 24-70L IS

i was stunned when i saw it

it basically looks the same as the current brick, but that it has the IS switch under the AF/MF switch

Possibly Confirmed in Poland

Date: 3/2/2009
Source: CR

Rating: 2/5, Votes: 1

CR is reporting that a price list from Canon in Poland shows a 5D Mark II with 24-70 IS kit, and that when someone tried to confirm with Canon, they stated it was correct. Specifically:

He even spoke with Canon representative to be shure that this was not a typo. Canon confirmed that 24-70 IS will be available soon. That's all I know, and I hope you will find it interesting.

This information came from two separate emails to CR, it sounds somewhat unlikely (although would be more than welcome), possibly real, possibly a typo somewhere...

Possibly Not Confirmed in Poland

Date: 3/2/2009
Source: CR

Rating: 3/5, Votes: 1

From CR again:

I was sent an email suggesting what's actually going to be happening. Canon is going to release an official 5D Mark II/24-70 f/2.8L kit. It won't be an IS version of the lens.

So nothing definitive still...

Late 2009 at the earliest

Date: 12/29/2008
Source: CanonRumors

Rating: 3/5, Votes: 1

From a CanonRumors source:

"Canon has no imminent plans for an update to the 24-70. Canon has 5-6 lenses in queue for an update beforehand. There is a small chance you could see the lens at the same time as the 1Ds update in late 2009/early 2010."

Busted Rumor

Rating: 1.5/5, Votes: 4

In light of today's announcement from Canon regarding its new Hybrid Image Stabilization technology, CR has already received a tip about a new 24-70mm due by the end of August, presumably with this new version of IS.

CR comments they have no info from credible sources on this one.

Next Week Or Two

Date: 2/16/2009
Source: POTN

Rating: 2/5, Votes: 4, Comments: 1

According to a POTN forum posting:

"I know this has been discussed before about the possibility of a IS version of this lens.. but today I was in a local camera store talking to the salesman about purchasing the Canon 24-70 and we got to talking and he said they are going to release a 24-70 2.8 IS within the next week or two. He said he just found out about 2 days ago."

It's a forum posting, take it for what it is.

CR PMA Prediction

Date: 2/13/2009
Source: CR

Rating: 2/5, Votes: 1

CR has issued a prediction for PMA 2009, based on the rumors that they have received. PMA starts in about 3 weeks at the beginning of March, although a release of something is expected next week on February 17th/18th.

According to CR, a new Canon EF 24-70 f2.8L II IS Lens is possible:

"Possibly the most sought after lens Canonites are lusting after. Match Nikon's optics and add IS? You’d have a massive sales success. It almost wouldn't matter what it cost.

Again, this is their prediction based on rumors they have received.
