EF 24-70 2.8 L II Review Up on Lenstip
Dec 1, 2012

Beats version I in most every way, most significantly in resolution, although it doesn't reach the record breaking (for Lenstip) levels of the Nikon 24-70 2.8 ED G.  But it performs very well in the Imatest/MTF 50 segment.

Weaknesses are CA, huge vignetting (more than Nikon, Sigma and Tamron) and work against bright light (flare).

It's a good read, and the sample images at the end look lovely.

Are people here planning to upgrade, or have most here (still and video shooters) decided to get the stabilized Tamron lens or the new f4 zoom or keep what you have?
