Sorry for this stupid question but I was wondering if the Canon 70-200mm f2.8 lens with Image Stabilizer has just been released by Canon. I've just seen it on the net and I can't remember seeing it somewhere else before. I know people like the 70-200mm 2.8 but they were talking about the non IS version. Does anybody have it with IS?

First I hear if that lens on the market. (An IS version of the 70-200 was rumoured to be in planning stages but since then no word yet)!

70-200L ƒ2.8 is a fine lens though - wouldn't mind having one of those puppies myself.

This lens is brand new. OK, it's a development of the famous 70-200 F2.8 that's been around a good while, but I would be surprised if you find anyone with the IS version, as it has only just been released onto the market.

The Non-IS version has probably been around for close to a decade. I have one myself, and it is by far my favorite lens. But with its high speed capability and lack of vignetting even at f/2.8, I really don't see the benefit of IS for aviation photography, unless you shoot at night.

The best thing about the new version is that maybe the price of the non-IS version will drop.

Blackened,

Where did you see this lens on sale? I've checked out Canon's website for more info on this new IS version, but there's absolutely nothing about it.

CFALK,
you took the words directly out of my mouth- for 80-200 you absolutely do not need it (IS), unless you have extra money and feel the urge to spend it.
For the straight 300mm, i would get it- only thing holding me back right now is the $5,000 price tag.

I don't know what you guys are talking about. When did you ever have too much light to play with? Let's say you have the convertor on, I bet you could use the stabilizer? Let's say you are doing a low level air-to-air shoot and there is, as usual, bumpy air. Well, stabilizer on and you might just deliver.

They have the lens at www.canon.de. But it's in German.

price: EUR 2811,59
The non IS costs EUR 1891,26, I don't believe they made it cheaper.
BTW: The 300 2.8 IS costs EUR 6134,98

Jan,
with my 1.4x converter on my 70-200mm 2.8 there is never a problem with stabilization (even at max 280mm @ F3.9). As far as air to air- i've never done it so I dont know but since you have I take your word that the stabilization may be necessary.
