3 1/2 stars for optical quality

Meanwhile, and, again, not owning it, I can only but find extremely significant that one of the sites whose lenses evaluations I respect most, only gave it 3 1/2 stars out of 5 for its "Optical Quallity".

That 3 1/2 stars is the highest rating that any 24-70/2.8 reviewed there has gotten.  It's also up 1/2 star over the previous EF version.  The limitation is apparently one inherent in the 24-70/2.8 class, one that shouldn't concern you anyway as you've mentioned several times you find the 70mm max too short for your needs.

Big jumps in pricing is the norm for all companies, not just Canon.
