But would you be prepared to pay what it would cost to slightly improve on the current 24-105?

Compared to a 24-70mm f/4? Yes! I am much more likely buying a 24-105 II than this 24-70 f/4.

The 24-105mm f/4 has its weakness on the wide side with corner sharpnes and vignetting. That is something that could be imporved as well as upgrading the IS to newer technology.

Maybe it's only me, but I don't see the point in the 24-70 f/4. It is only so slightly shorter and lighter that it would not justify the loss of extra reach for me.

Cheers,
