there is already a 24-105 IS USM

so why the new lens, is it only IQ upgrade?

- Image Quality

- Weather Sealing

- near-Macro

- Hybrid IS

- One stop more IS

- Weight

- Size

That it ?

So a new 24-105L couldn't have those features. We traded off the extra speed of the 24-70 f/2.8 with the longer FL range, making it a very useful travel lens. While the rumoured macro features are nice, I cannot see why we are back to a 70mm max FL. Very restrictive for f/4. I'd give up some magnification for more FL. Heck Nikon went to 120mm on their version.
