Pros: Sharpness, Large Aperture, good for low light, fast focus, resistant

Cons: too heavy, at 70 mm a bit soft in the corners. No IS.

Opinion: I have this lens from 5 years now. It is fast, provide good quality of image, sharp. I'm using it as an all around lens. Even if I've dropped it a couples of times , it's still working well and it is a wonderful lens. Maybe it is to heavy comparing with other lenses from its class, but it's an L lens. Wide aperture makes it suitable for many situation that's why I have it all time in my bag.

Pros: Wonderful

Cons: Heavy

Opinion: Buy back used after a few years, thanks to a good opportunity,by a user of this forum, which I already knew, we had already had the opportunity to do business races together on my 5D 2 churns out wonderful photos, an excellent autofocus, unfortunately it is very heavy, it is not a lens suitable for long commutes, at least x me I am not very good at writing reviews, but I am very happy to have regained this lens.

Pros: zoom fluidity, optics and superb mechanics, is the only 24-70 canon that I have never brought in assistance,made in japan, always synonymous with quality for me, subject three-dimensionality, chromatic fidelity, an optics with caxxi in short.

Cons: low-than-six pounds.

Opinion: practically the quintessential canon optics, one of the best ever of the tokyo house, also compared to the latest versions in my possession, the only one that has never gone into assistance in 18 years,when the 24-70 f2.8 II sometimes there has been, every pro always has a 24-70 f 2.8 on the stock exchange, a reason there will be. The autofocus is fast, silent, instant even for moving subjects,compared to an f4 is or stm there is no history, even for subjects not well "illuminated", also because the stabilizer is only for the vibrations not of the subject taken if moving or dark,obviously the salty price compared to an f4 is everything. Never brought home photos out of focus even at full opening. What to say about the bokeh, this is an optics that has a blurry all its own even compared to the 85 1.2, the backgrounds seem to merge almost become plastic and blend with each other also compared to the leica 24-90 2.8 that I have in the other kit. The best of the blurry returns it at 70 mm with subject close. However, being a zoom the distortion at 24mm,28 and 70mm it shows, if you want to find the hair in the egg, but just make us a little eye and almost absent at 35mm and at 50mm, I have to say that it is never too annoying. An interesting thing compared to when I had it on film is that you just set in the peripheral lighting camera and you will not have dark corners, but you just have to close to f 5.6 or 6.3 and already becomes very sharp. I have never noticed images with spherocromatism and the chromatic fidelity is really such. But the best part where you see the quality of the optics is the backlight, always well balanced. The minimum focus distance is 0.38 m. A good used one can be found from 350/400 euros,think about it before you take home a f4 stm or L new,I would go on the 2.8 used,as I said there is no history, it's like comparing a supercar to a top-of-the-range sedan.

Pros: Construction quality, tonal yield, sharpness

Cons: Weight

Opinion: Lens with a great yield. It is on the second-hand market at now reasonable prices, although still high. Nothing to say. excellent focus, excellent color rendering, coming from the 24-105 first version the difference immediately jumps to the eye. Strange the mechanism now abandoned by canon, so at lower focals the body is longer than at high focals. The lampshade is quite cumbersome, but you can always keep it mounted without problems. Like all light zooms it is quite heavy and challenging, although it is well balanced with a body like the 5d mk3, but the photographic quality pays for everything. Very highly recommended. I dare not imagine the quality of the new version.

Pros: Versatility, sharpness, vividness.

Cons: Weight and vignetting at 24 mm.

Opinion: I have this lens since the time of film, after thousands of shots has become almost an extension of my eye. She has her age but she does her duty in full and I have very few criticisms to make. Sure at 24mm vignette, all right, but you can fix it in post I closing the aperture one or two stops. I could only deprive myself for the 24mm USM II. See. I'm keeping it tight for now.
