I own it and use it as part of my regular kit. It’s an amazing lens and most of the hyperbole you’ve read is spot-on.

If I had one issue with it, it’s that it is heavy. Like, really, really heavy. I recently did some event work that paired it with a 600EX and consistently found myself readjusting in downtime to find a more comfortable resting position.

Barring that, I’m in love with it and typically have it mounted on my primary body.

I don't know why but I always find it funny when someone says the 28-70 is heavy, guess it's because I usually handhold my EF 500 f4 lol.

I'm with you, but was at a family shoot the other day and had the RF 70-200mm f/2.8 on one body and the 28-70mm f/2 on the other.  I was surprised how much heavier the 28-70 was.  Very noticeable.
