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

I love my 24-70.

It is heavy but the perfect lens for shooting just about anything. I have the 1.4 50 and think it's a killer lens for selective focusing and bokeh like food or anything where I want to isolate. Edge-to-edge the 50 is a lot sharper, but the versatility of the 24-70 is something akin to the 17-55 on a DX.
