I bought this zoom at the end of a trip around Japan in March last year, after my wife complained about all the gear I was carrying. This seemed the most natural lens to use for travel, because its range is useful and it is very sharp and has a reasonably fast aperture. On a full frame camera like the 6D or 1Ds3, it also has very nice bokeh. The 24-70 is a heavy lens and it is quite expensive. When I compare it to the Sigma 18-35 it is on a par. Given that the Sigma is about $750 and the ...

Focus speed is probably twice as fast as the Tamron it replaced and certainly more consistent.  A wonderful lens that can only be improved with IS for handheld video.  Pairs up wonderfully with the 70-200 IS II I have - amazing 2 lens 1-2 punch. Of note - it does vignette a tad more than I'd have expected wide open, but the camera can correct that automatically (be sure to grab the lens profile from the EOS utility).  This doesn't matter much for raw stills, but certainly does for video.

This is the sharpest lens I've ever used. Ever (including 70-200 IS II). It has good construction, smooth zoom with no creep, quick and silent focus, sharp wide open to the corners, lust color rendition like a prime L. The only downside is lack of IS but besides that point I'm giving it a 10/10. I am in the process of selling my 24L II after having this 24-70 II because it is sharper and has the same colors. A zoom that is sharper and has better rendition than prime? Yes it can be done. The ...

I'm going to summarize much of what I've written on my blog: http://frontallobbings.blogspot.ca/2012/09/this-one-goes-to-11-new-canon-ef-24.html The lens is a great improvement over the older version. Vignetting is almost completely gone, but the corner and edge performance is fantastic. I replaced three primes of mine for this lens, one of them being what I considered one of the best primes that Canon has produced in recent years, the EF 24mm F/1.4L II USM. Compared to that prime it is only ...
