Canon EF 24-70 f/4L IS Lens “On the Horizon”

Canon 24-70mm f4 IS Rumors

After the rumor about a 24-70mm f/2.8L IS lens from Canon a couple days ago, Canon Rumors is now tweaking that rumor with “reliable” info on a f/4 version of that lens.  Apparently, the f/4 version of the lens is on the horizon and could be arriving soon.

Seems like an odd lens to add to the mix, particularly with the solid 24-105mm f/4L IS that’s been selling like hotcakes since its release.  Of course, if the sharpness improvements are as substantial as the 24-70mm f/2.8L II were over the lens it replaced, a smaller and lighter lens might serve as a replacement and more directly compliment the popular 70-200mm lineup.

What would you think about a stabilized 24-70mm f/4L IS lens?  What would be the right price point for you?
