From my experience a lot of low-light landscape require a tripod like water flow (or blur out the foreground where people/car move about) required much slower shutter speed than any IS can handle... I.e 1/25s wouldn't cut it

Any good date on when the IS primes are expected? I want a wider prime to compliment my 50mm.

Nope, but also have to ask, if you are shooting still over video, why you would choose these. I would look at the 28mm f1.8 as you are getting 1 1/3 more stops than the new primes, or if you can afford it then get the 35mm f1.4 (I love mine), if you are on crop go for the Sigma 30mm f1.4.

Hi Mark. Not saying that I'd buy either. Rather, I have a feeling as soon as they are released there will be a number of used wide primes flooding the for sale boards as people scramble to get the newest versions.

I am indeed shooting a crop so wider is better

Canon glass is Canon glass. Better quality color and bookeh! I have the 24-70mm Mark I and I use it mainly for weddings. It is amazing! I always keep it on my camera. A bread winner lens. I will definitely try the Mark II version as soon as I can order it! I am sure it will be awesome!

gps-e1 no, but the gps-e2 yes
gps-e2 is support by the 1dx, 7d, 5d mk-iii and t4i

As for IS, it is just a crutch for the modern lazy snapsshooter, real photographers always use a Zone VI heavy duty tripod.

On the other hand the GPS-E1 only supports the 1Dx which is a bummer as almost all other manufacturers already support geo-tagging with their dSLRs if not built-in already!

Nope. But, it shouldn't be too long, as I've seen a couple of hands on previews of the pre-release versions of the lens (I'm assuming you mean the new Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L II USM).

You may want to get on the lists to notify you when it's in stock if you're interested in it.

For example, you can do that from the B&H listing here:

Same with the Amazon.com listing here, so that they'll send you an e-mail when they have stock:
