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: Construction, paired zoom/hood mechanism, colors, blurred, sharpness, 77 filters, minimum MAF, flare resistance, blurred

Cons: I can not find if not a variable yield of specimens and the cost of overhaul bushings

Opinion: The latest lens made by Canon without having to please wall photographers. Why do I say this? Today, lenses must be full-aperture hypernitide from the center to the edges without varying by one line per millimeter. I do not know why but apparently everything that Ernst Leitz II said about how he must make an optics, the same ideas that made his company famous, no longer apply, or that there must be an excellent contrast and sharpness in the center that must decrease slightly at the edges, this helps to detach the subject. The Canon 24-70 is just like that at full aperture, well sharp on the point of MAF and slightly fades the rest, the blurred is very soft, the classic colors warm and never too saturated Canon, has a little vignetting, made for me sublime. Closed at F8/11 it becomes perfect and sharp from edge to edge, without having an exaggerated contrast, you have to deal with a bit of curvature of the field, so you have to know how to focus on the edges. It holds the flare, 77 filters, very human size, very fast AF and beautiful almost Macro mode. Of course it is built very well, at 24 it is elongated and at 70 retracted, this allows you to have a hood that works at any focal length (the usual canon pro with velvet). It has only one constructive problem to the bushings, they wear out and after a while it begins to lose performance, the revision costs € 350 but is deserved by the yield of the lens. It has not been in production for a while, I found one of the last in impeccable condition, on the 1DX it is his death for the "short" side.

Pros: Exactly what my friend Paul wrote.

Cons: Like above.

Opinion: Let me start: I make portraits and, in the "feminine" portrait, the sharpness as described by Paolo, the detachment of the floors, and the blurry make it an indispensable "piece". I add a "very personal" consideration/opinion (which is then the reason for my comment). As is well known, zooms generally stretch in canvas position, and fall into a wide-angle position. "This" works in reverse (and this would, in itself, be a VALID reason to rub it as a piece of collector's interest!)! that? Canon never explained it, as far as I know. "In my opinion" the reason lies precisely in the blessed paraluce, rightly praised by Paul. In the indented position (canvas) you enjoy a FULLY efficient lampshon; in an extruded position (wide angle) it correctly offers itself for a few millimeters, so as not to vignette. The standard scheme, which theoretically would have allowed better results in terms of resolution, instead obliges a lampshed calculated not to vignette at 24 mm., but thus, in the tele position, there is virtually no protection from the rays of light accidents. With a more "traditional" construction (EF 24-70/2.8 L Mk. II, for example) therefore, it would probably have been possible to obtain MTF (theoretical!!!) a little better BUT, "in the field", having a TRUE AND FUNCTIONAL lampshon would still have led to better images (no less negatively affected by flares). My opinion is that Canon's mathematicians reasoned in these terms! Then, with the Mk. II, to better conform to the wishes of the "ox park" (always insatiable in requesting the "the more there is, the better" -of resolution, in this case-!) they changed course, according to the wishes of the mktg.. My opinion (that I own both), of course.

Pros: High sharpness, very good backlight hold, AF very fast and very precise, minimal distortion, blurry simply splendid... indeed unique given the focal points at stake, excellent construction, absolutely functional lampshed so much that from this point of view only the previous 28-70/2.8 L is on par, circular diaphragm, very efficient tropicalization, excellent handling.

Cons: Practically no one, perhaps the sharpness could have been a little higher but it must be said that twenty years ago his was a very high standard.

Opinion: I use it little because it covers a range of focal points that you still have to have but that I, for what is my photography, do very little. It is a lens that in the field use, always freehand clearly, is appreciated for its extreme handling and for the excellent balance that shows engaged on my EOS 1 V where, among other things, it allows me to easily use laying times up to 1/4 of a second. The blurr that it generates is absolutely unique and this is, in my humble opinion, its highest quality; the huge lampshon also, in addition to performing its function excellently to all focal points (therefore not only at the minimum focal point like those of all competitors who with their configuration, in fact, perform their function only at the shortest focal point), being bound to the body of the lens and not to its extensible part, also ensures excellent protection from both accidental shocks and atmospheric agents. Ultimately it is a lens that despite the design seniority, and a clarity honestly not irreproachable, for all other characteristics is at least even, often even higher (see for example the lampshed, the blurred and the construction), to the current counterparts.

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.
