Re: At first I didn't think much for the short zoom range of the 24-70

It seemed very boring. In the early 80's I owned the FD 35-70mm f2.8 (a $900 lens at the time) and my goodness was that a sharp lens! Anyhoo back to today, I quickly got over the short zoom range of the 24-70 once I saw the incredible IQ it consistantly delivers! I still have my 24-105 and currently it is sitting on a shelf sniff sniff.

I hope you atleast try one out if you get a chance.


After first day of shooting with the 24-70II, it was clear the 24-105 was not going to get much camera time anymore.  Sold it on craigslist.  Helped pay down some of the credit card bill, anyway.
