We shot this for The Photoletariat and think it might be of interest to our viewers here on C5D.
Here is a super boring Quick Take on The Tokina 28-80mm f2.8 Vs. The Canon 24-70 f2.8. We also put the Canon 70-200mm f2.8 L IS up against the Tokina 80-200mm f2.8. The Canons seemed to be a bit sharper than the Tokinas. The Tokina had a cooler/blue looking lens flare to my eye where the Canon was much warmer/yellow.
Canon 70-200mm f2.8L IS II USM Lens
Canon has announced the release of a new 70-200mm L series Lens. The improvements over the old 70-200mm include a four stop IS compensation and a reduced minimum focus distance of 3.9 ft. Â Canon claims “improved optical performance on the new EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM lens by redesigning the internal elements, incorporating a fluorite element and a fifth UD element.”

Canon 70-200mm IS T2.8
Canon is going to announce the new 70-200mm IS lens at the end of November. With the release of the new hybrid IS system, the 70-200mm could potentially have a five stop compensation with the new IS system. The current 70-200 IS is one of the most useful lenses in the Canon line. If this means a price drop in the old 70-200mm. Iâ€™m in. If you are planning on getting rid of your 70-200mm, now would be the time.
