Just got my 24-70 f/2.8 II--first impressions.

Just shot my first business portrait with this lens.

Just a heads up for anyone who is following this thread. I just shot my first editorial business portrait with this lens. Initial impressions still stand with two surprises:

1. Everyone says how sharp the 24-70 f/2.8 II lens is--they are right. At f/4.5 it was easily as sharp as my wonderful 70-200!

2. Flare control was just awesome! I was shooting into a bank of fluorescent lights on the wall, and the flare was non-existent. My 70-200 had trouble with the same lights.

I would post some images, but I can't until the story runs. Sorry--maybe later.
