I'm blown away by the price of the 24-70 II. Thats crazy. I've been holding off buying the MKI version for about a year now. I'll wait for a comparison, but seriously.
"this has a tilting 12" hd lcd with built in dolby 5:1 surround as well as a red velvet collapsable chair that folds into the battery grip and a small asian who lives behind the sensor and makes you popcorn. it's the same asian who cleans the sensors on all of canon's sensor cleaning bodies so it's not that revolutionary"
