I just paid a fortune for the 24-70 2.8 II as an upgrade to the 24-105, but after testing and testing I'm finding that the 24-105 is sharper. How is this possible? I've attached comparison pictures, both taken on 5DIII at ISO 5000, f4, 1/100th. This is a crop from 100%, dead centre of the frame, straight out of camera. I took them about 30 seconds apart and found that the 24-105 is sharper throughout the zoom range. Have I just got a bad copy?
This is about zooms: 16-35, 24-70, and 70-200. Canon is unique in offering both F2.8 and F4 versions. Nikon only has F2.8. Sony FE (the new A7 models) are only F4. But there are differences: 1) While the 70-200 has IS for both apertures, the F4 has for the 16-35 and the 24-70. For low light stills, IS may provide 2-4 F-stops more light with a slower shutter speed (although with more motion blur of a moving subject) while the F2.8 is just one F-stop faster. For low light stills, F4 IS would...
I will be photographing my first wedding in mid August this year and I have a question about what lenses to use. But first, here is what I plan to use: Primary Camera:Canon 1D Mark II N - Rokinon 14mm T3.1 - Canon 24-70mm F2.8L II Will these lenses work with my 1D? I see that the Rokinon and Canon are both designed for Crop and Full Frame cameras (according to LensRentals) and the Mark II N has a crop sensor of 1.3x. I chose these lenses not only for the price but also the fact that they have...

I wanted to get some other opinions but it seems to me that I would only need 2 lenses to cover the perfect range for wedding photography. I'm looking at the 24-70mm and 70-200mm and this is for my 1.6x crop T4i/650D. I don't plan to get a FF body anytime soon because I want to save up for the lenses first. I also plan to pair this with a 430EX II so I dont have to worry about the f/4 vs f/2.8... So I guess my question is "Is this a sufficient for beginner event/wedding photography? Am I...
I am a fairly new comer in advanced photographing and looking to upgrade my camera equipment. While most my reading points to 6D will be a good choice(IQ, weights, GPS etc..), I was wondering if I should also consider 5D Mark III because of what I found later. I was particularly impressed with images(on Flicker) of 24/70 2.8L II lens and decided to go for it. However, in viewing those amazing images, I found a vast majority(200000) of it are taken with 5D. Very few(30) were taken on 6D. And...
Hi, I'm interested in what lens I should buy next. I'm looking into L glass, but also kind of a budget. I kind of have a more photojournalistic style, and I vary from portraits to landscapes, a good zoom with a constant aperture of at least 4 or 2.8 would be the best. I've been looking at the 24-105, 17-40, 16-35 (pricey), 24-70 or a 70-200 (Debating IS or non IS, since I found myself doing sports photography indoors). I've looked around on Amazon, BHPhotoVideo, and even Craigslist to just...
Hello Everyone, I am so excited that I finally have this lens. Some of my friends are saying I need to get a UV filter mainly protecting this expensive toy. But other friends just tell me to forget the UV protector since the image qualify will be reduced. What do you think? Shall I get one UV filter for this lens? The size is 82mm and so expensive for a few decent brands, like B+W, Hoya... If you recommend one, could you please tell me which brand and model I need to buy? I am pretty new to...
