The big question is how much these will cost, particulary the
70-200 f4L IS.
If it's in the U$1,100 tops, I bet lots will be migrating from
their non-IS version, and we'll have those non-IS at U$400 used.

The 50 f1.2L usm will probably cost a lot, another U$1,000 lens
(wherebabouts). And not everybody is ga-ga over 50mm, though there
are many who do want it. At least, it will

For me, there's another option on the table from the sigma 50-150
f2.8, and tokina 50-135 f2.8. Except for price, that f4 with IS is
worth more to me than the loss of 1 stop.

Of course, these are all unconfrimed. but we only have less than 24
hrs to wait, so we'll know
