From time to time the Canon EF 24-70 f/2.8L IS lens gets a mention somewhere. The first time this lens was rumored goes back to 2012. The latest bits suggest “that Canon is actively working on an EF 24-70 f/2.8L IS lens” and “that two or three prototypes exist, but no final design has been decided on“, and finally to “not expect this lens from Canon for 18-24 months at the earliest“.
