Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L - When do we get IS?
1

Lens manufacturers have been producing some fantastic lenses recently.

Tamron and Sigma have made great strides in the last couple of years and they are now producing some great professional lenses. Nikon and Canon continue to produce world class lenses.

I predominantly shoot with Canon gear for both stills and video and have been happy with their gear up to now.

But.... Canon hasn't been keeping pace with other manufacturers.

A prime example of this is their current 24-70mm f/2.8 lens. All other manufacturers have an image stabilised version of this lens and most have done for a number of years.

Canon's answer to this was to produce the 24-70mm f/4 lens. It's a great lens but it's also very disappointing they still haven't come up with an f/2.8 stabilised lens.

Canon shooters have been crying out for this lens for years but it's just not come. There are some flimsy rumours that one may arrive in 2018/19 but they are so lacking in detail that I doubt it will be arriving soon.

Are canon falling behind? Thoughts?
