Thanks man, and yes, price is always the issue when its this kind of amount (it is the highest priced 24-70, higher by 17% than all the others including sony's zeiss!). I do realize that when taking stills we can get around the camera shake problem with many techniques, but the problem for me is I also want to take videos of my little bopping son with me running around with him (so no tripods!). it will make a big difference with somekind of IS when taking vids.

I can go for a camcorder, but since i already have the 5dm3, it takes beautiful vids especially when the mark 3 does not use line skipping algorithms anymore (compared to the 5d2). the 5d3 will also kill camcorders on lowlight and dof.
