Thanks heaps for the replies.

What I decided not to say in the original post is that I already have the 24-105. I use it, but I've never once looked at a photo from it and said "wow" - straight out of the camera.

When I use the 70-200 (I've had the f4L IS but sold it to get the f2.8L ISII) I will often look at pictures and just be so happy. I don't get that feeling from the 24-105. It does everything well, but just not great. The same goes for some of the canon primes - you'll look at a picture and find it captured something more...

I think I'll hold off until the new one comes out. Then I can either pick up a good second hand older one, of save up!

Thanks again
