Dsnoir: My feeling about the second image is that it works either as is, with the striations of the sand leading you into the curve and then further into the image, settling at the horizon/cloud line. It also makes a very strong image by cropping it so that the curve is coming in from the corner.

I totally agree.

Who bought the camera? Who went on a trip to photograph the monkey? Who let the monkey take hundreds of photos? (he could have shoot the monkey...)
That's right, no other human being had any role on taking those photos besides David Slater. Certainly not Wikimedia.
From a logical point of view, the copyright owner is David Slater, hands down. If the law says otherwise, then I think it's time to change it...

twstriving: I didn’t know Trey Hardee was a Special Olympian (see headline photo). In fact, I have no idea who Trey Hardee is.

You really are overreacting, Mr. Alfred. As someone said, these aren't the only photos taken to those athletes. They are human beings, not Marvel heroes. Don't you think they (and we) deserve some normality? Do you think they deserve to live forever on a pedestal? And don't you think the photographer has the right to express his view to the masses?
If you don't like the photos, don't look at them. I and many more people like them. Get over it. Get a life :P

GeezerBeatz: Sorry KAllen, I have to disagree. The 24-70mm, as with any standard/wide angle zoom lens doesn't really need to have IS. Its the same with the cheaper 18-55mm IS. At the wide end, you won't notice it, and it you need IS at the top end, then you would already have a 70-200mm IS to back you up.
The f2.8 aperture means it is fast enough to take slightly longer exposed images without the use of a tripod or IS controls.
What Canon have done is improved the glass, made it lighter (which they needed to) and made it a little more portable which will be ideal for any possible (sic!) new camera to come out such as the 5D Mk II replacement which is more likely to be a smaller body than its predecessor.
I think this lens will take off if they can promise the quality and reliability of the first generation of this range.
The other new lenses are not only going to be good protrait for APS-C bodies, but handy, cheap video lenses.

You clearly don't take pictures inside churches...
