Re: Canon 24-70 I USM f/2.8 Lens

It is a very good lens. Until the version II came out, it was considered one of the best full frame photojournalism lenses available.

That being said, it is heavy (esp on the front of a 500D). For the price range you are getting into with the 24-70, I think you would be better off with the EF-S 17-55/f2.8 IS USM. It is a great lens for APS-C (crop) sensor cameras. My favorite on my 30D and 50D.
