The unicorn of standard zooms is rumored to be in the pipeline for Canon shooters.
We’ve been begging for a 24-70mm f/2.8L IS lens from Canon for years. Nikon just announced its own version for full frame Nikon shooters, which should start shipping in a couple weeks.
If rumors hold true though, it could be 1.5-2 years before we actually see such a lens released from Canon. There are rumored to be several prototypes in testing now with a new (and smaller) IS system.
The current EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM lens retails for $1899, so expect a version with IS to run a few hundred dollars more.
