Just posted: Our review of Canon's top-end standard zoom, the EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM. Launched a year ago to replace its 10-year old predecessor, it's designed as a workhorse for professional photographers, and features a completely new optical design and improved, weathersealed build. In the latest of our lens reviews produced in collaboration with DxOMark, we take a look both lab and real-world performance. As usual, you can also compare it to a wide range of similar lenses using our unique lens data widget. Click through below to see what we thought.

Why would you waste this lens on a Pentax? I doubt there's a Pentax K mount that could outresolve this lens so you'd be wasting your money on resolution the camera couldn't capture.
