A recent patent publication shows Canon has been looking into adding image stabilization to a 24-70mm f/2.8 lens. Given the recent announcement of the EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM lens (which still isn’t available), however, this doesn’t bode well for an IS version anytime soon.
Of course, there’s a Tamron lens that fills this void though…

B&H has the new Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM Pancake lens in stock and now shipping. Given the size and the $199 price, I expect this to be a very popular little lens.
