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.
