Ken Rockwell: Don't buy a midrange zoom. Carry a fixed 50mm instead, like a pro.

Ken's a moron.

1/2 the time he's telling you the 18-200 is the only lens you'll ever need and the only lens he ever carries, the other half he's spouting this garbage. It gets tiresome.

For the OP:

Of course pros use the 24-70. The damn thing costs $2000...who else do you think is buying it?

Well that's what I believe too... But like I said, want to check if what KR said is true !

Surely you must see that there is no absolute truth in a matter like this. If you think you need one or want one, then go ahead and get one.

KR has his reasons for what he says, and in most cases he tells you what those reasons of his are. If those reasons or circumstances or subjective views do not apply to you, or you have a different subjective view, then you should not worry about what other people say. And you should not worry about that other people may different opinions. Of course thay have.

Enjoy your lens.
