This lense really is all that its cracked up to be!!! Worth every shiny penny it cost. Razor like edges from 28-70 ... 1 word: Incredible... I posted some example shot in the People Forum and Other Forum.

B&H , J&R Musicworld, Adorama etc any place that is an authorized canon dealer has them or can obtain one in usually a few days if they are out of stock.

I guess I'm missing something. Adorama tells me there is no such animal. Canon does not even list it on their web site.:?:

The EF 28-70mm F/2.8 lens was discontinued and replace by the new EF 24-70mm F/2.8 year ago, B&H sold out the last batch as discouted price of $999, several test reports reviews the outstanding performance of this lens. I bought it at B&H along with theEF 16-35mm F/2.8. Cool lens, beautiful made, so balance on the 10D with battery grip attached.

Sometimes KEH has them listed - watch out as thereis also an older version that is a 28-80mm 2.8-4.0L - in fact there are 2 listed on KEH as of today (5/9/04), but no 28-70mm 2.8L's. You never know when they might show up.

I believe there is a review on this lens at: http://www.fredmiranda.com
