Réponses Photo wows new 24/70 f/2.8
Apr 16, 2009

Just picked up the May issue of "Réponses Photo" and their review test of the new 24-70mm f/2.8 DG EX HSM rates it overall at 91%... a figure I can only ever remember seeing with a couple of Nikkors, one Canon and a Leica M lens in that magazine during the past decade.

Surprisingly, they give it a 19/20 on "Rapport qualité / Prix" which is an astonishingly high figure for a lens costing (in France) 1,200 euros list (but less in boutiques) and is a rating I've never seen them ever give before in the Quality/Price category... despite them saying that the doubling in price over the older version wasn't fully justified.

It also rated 37/40 on "Qualité optique", 17/20 for "Construction" and 18/20 for "Confort d'utilisation". I think this new lens is going to get some serious attention!
