There are many opinions starting to form of this lens and I am so surprised that people expect this to be a wonder lens! yes it's not cheap but it's still a zoom lens and zooms are a compromise.

So if you expect tack sharp images accross the frame at large apertures then you may be disappointed!

This lens is versatile and will give you much sharper images than the kit lens especially in the corners but don't expect it to give you prime performance.

At £1049 it's good value when you compare with Canon and Nikon but just dont expect a new level of performance.

Well said. I can say that the Canon 24-70 2.8 probably outperforms it -  but at 2x the price.

This 24-70 should be compared to the Canon 24-70 f/4 and at that, I personally like it better.

This being said, I'm normally not a zoom guy and this one is no exception. When I already have fairly lightweight primes that beat it, I end up leaving the zoom at home. Not a zoom guy.
