[Rumor] EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM To Be Released September 6th??

According to Japanese site dcwatch (translated) the EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM II (click here for specs) lens will be released to the general public on September 6th, that’s in three days!! Price will be around $2300.

Lens initially announced on February 7, had been scheduled for release in April. Had postponed the launch in early July and then, I had been postponed again in mid-September the launch as “it takes time to make final adjustments to achieve the target performance high” on July 5. This time, Release date has been confirmed.

To pre-order check the following shops: Adorama (click here) and B&H (click here). If you live somewhere in Asia, DigitalRev could be the right choice for you, they have the lens available for pre-order too (click here, price depends by your location).

    Even though I sold my 24-105mm back in April anticipating the release of this lens…I have decided to wait a while before purchasing…with an delay this long ..one has to wonder about the lens. At that price they will not be flying off the shelves for very long. Think I will wait to read some street reviews and for a price drop which I think will be sooner than later…but I do hope that the lens is a stellar performer!

    No IS. I guess III will be along in a few years.
