Looks like at last Canon will have a zoom lens that can cope with
full frame digital requirements. The 24-105 f/4 L IS will probably
retail around 1,500 euro.

Man, $5K for a body and lens! I may have to wait on the lens, and may sell
the 28-135, as well. But hey, it could be worth it.

That would make for a heck of a "kit," now wouldn't it?

Why doesn't the 24-70 f2.8L cope with full frame digital requirements?

It does. The 1Ds/1Ds2 users report that it's flipping amazing.

FWIW, check out this guy's lens reviews.

That Canon has been making normal 35mm lenses that covered the "full
frame" for decades is just another one of those hoaxes, like how we
never went to the Moon, right?

I rather thought so. I've been totally blown away by the imagery I've
gotten from that lens and my 20D. I'm going up to the Central Coast for a
week starting Labor Day Weekend, and shooting some film with it. Can't
wait...

The 24-70 f2.8L is an excellent lens but shows a couple of stops of light
fall off in the corners on the D1s2 shown in an in-depth technical review
in The British Journal of Photography. There is also some colour fringing
in the corners.

On the other hand, why do you think the 28-105 f4 L is going to be any more
capable? The 24-70 came out about the same time as the 1Ds, so I'd presume
it was designed with that camera in mind...

The excellent William L Castleman didn't specifically test for light fall-off.
You need specialist equipment to measure it.

As you know Canon use the market to beta test their products. Only after the
24-70 hit the market did it receive the baptism of fire. Also the higher res
the camera so defects become more obvious as shown with the D1s2.

Canon are now well aware of the digital full frame requirements and will
design
for it.

I expect the new 24-105 f/4 L IS to make a super kit lens with the 5D. Will
make a killer combination for wedding large group shots and landscape
photography.
Would be the equal picture quality wise to the D2X with 17-55 f2.8, but much
better in low light.
