Just up for conversation. I look at the 24-105 f4 and see one of the most useful lenses that you can have in your bag yet it is also one the most middle of the road image quality "L" lenses Canon makes. I would happily pay their large upgrade price to get a tack sharp, lower distortion version.

Do they think it would hurt sales of other lenses?

I have taken a lot of great photos with this lens, but I think it can be so much better. Anybody else think this?

I don't know. It seems only barely better at the wide end stopped down for landscapes (from what I can gather) and it's larger and heaver than the 24-70 2.8 II!!!! Oh and it costs more than the 24-105L too.

Let's quantify "barely better":

Sigma 24-105 / 4L OS

Canon 24-105 / 4L IS

Whether the "update" is worth it, is another matter all together.
