Canon actively working on an EF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS lens?

This was murmured in the past, and got a new mention those days.

Rumor has it that Canon is developing an EF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS lens. Apparently, Canon was already working on this lens and produced some prototypes when the company was developing the EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM. The lens was not released so far, according to the rumor, because Canon deemed it to be too large and too heavy. Before releasing this lens, Canon will eventually work on reducing size and weight.

That’s all. No suggested announcement date nor specifications.

  • we need this lens more than anything. also new 50L would be so in time. I tried 24-70/4 with IS and it worked like magic.

    Others have tried to do IS on 24-70 f2.8 and it does not deliver sharp results. Canon are not idiots.
    The current lens is fantastically sharp. The 24-70 f4 with IS is nice and sharp too but has a different formula.
    They may succeed but don’t hold your breath and certainly hold on to your wallet.
