I'm looking to purchase a new lens for my Canon 70D. I've been reading a lot about the 24-70mm 2.8L and the 24-105 4L lenses. I really want to purchase the 24-105, but it seems that everyone thinks it's a waste and that I should invest more money and purchase the 24-70mm. Do any of you use the 24-105 or know about it? Would you purchase it?

Right now I have a 60D with a 28-135 kit lens and a nifty fifty that I've been using for a little bit more than a year now. It's clear to me that you should invest in lenses before you worry about the camera body, but if I can get both an L lens and a 5D, is it worth the investment to switch from the 60D that I have? I am talking purely image quality, as I am fully willing to carry around a heavier camera with me wherever I go. I feel that if I just got the 24-70 f/2.8 II, that I wouldn't be...
Is it normal for the zoom ring on my new 24-70 Mkii to have a slight bit of play or wiggle? It zooms in and out just fine, but there's this ever so slight amount of wiggle in the ring that's just enough to be noticeable. I compared it too the stock 18-55 and it had absolutely no play in it. Just wondering if this is normal behavior for an "L" quality lens? -Thanks
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...
