One thing that I shouldn't have been surprised about (but was) is that the front section moves 1-1/2 inches forward when you zoom from 24mm to 70mm. (I was unconsciously expecting the usual internal mechanism like the 16-35 and 70-200.)

Wow, before spending that much money i would  have at least read one review of it so no surprises like that.

Its breen out for months, ans almost everyone who buys it posts a review. Cant see how you missed that

Mines a week old today, its been off the camera only once. when i had my Tamron 24-70 i hardly used it.

Says something about the Canon, even though they are supposed to be quite close IQ wise.
