According to my Getty sources...

I was talking with my Getty colleagues earlier this year at a sporting event and they were told by their Canon rep that a replacement for the 70-200 2.8L IS would be coming out within the year. They were not surprised by this because the 70-200 2.8L IS is generally their least favorite Canon zoom because it's so soft at f/2.8. The other Canon zoom they disliked was the 16-35 2.8L.

I also learned that the Getty photographers were given the option to switch to Nikon or stay with Canon, but that once they switched it would be for good. Many chose to switch, and others chose to continue using their MkIIn's until Canon comes out with a replacement for the MkIII.
