24-70 f/2.8L II / macro comparison.

There seems to be some interest in this topic, so I shot a non-rigorous test with my new 24-70 f/2.8L II lens against my trusty 100 f/2.8 (non-L) macro this morning. Identical handheld exposures at f/2.8.

24-70 f/2.8L II (70mm zoom).

100 f/2.8 macro (non-L).

The ruler is in there so I could size the image in-camera. These are non-cropped jpegs saved in Photoshop with #9 quality compression.

The 24-70 performed better than expected. Not macro quality, of course, but I would use it in a pinch.
