The Phoblographer had his first impressions on the Canon EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM (price & specs). All we knew about the lens (i.e. build quality, ergonomics etc) is confirmed. They praise the excellent image stabilization. In the conclusion they write:

[…] first reaction on hearing about this lens was one of confusion, I didn’t get the point of another midrange zoom. Especially since the range fell right within the 24-105mm f4L IS and it was more expensive. Regardless of this initially negative opinion, I thought I’d give it a change and see how well it performed. When it arrived and I put it on my camera for the first time, two specific things stuck out to me that I liked, it was a great size/weight for a professional zoom, and the IS works really, really well. Part of the reason I gave up my zoom lenses, was that I hated the bulk and weight of them after so many years of lugging them around, this new 24-70mm f4L IS is a great size and not too heavy which means it could be a fantastic travel lens. It handles well, focuses fast, and so far, has impressive image quality. I’m going to dive further into the qualities in my full review, but so far, I think it is a nice lens. I will leave you with a few more image samples for now including a couple shots at full macro.
