Pros: compact, 77mm filters

Cons: My copy was not sharp. Overpriced for the speed and features.

Opinion: I must have gotten a lemon. I could not get a sharp image out of mine. I could not even detect precise focus at 10x liveview, which is normally quite easy for the rest of my lenses. I returned it and bought the 24-70 f/2.8L II, which is outstanding. Enough other people are happy that I'm sure I just had a bad copy. In use, I did not find the macro setting useful because it was too close to light the subject.

Pros: Compactness, solidity, sharpness, IS stabilizer, macro possibility. Price not exaggerated.

Cons: Nothing, knowing what you buy.

Opinion: Excellent all-rounder goal, built according to L standards and therefore without weak parts. The focal lengths cover the "classic" ones of the fixed lenses in vogue years ago (24mm, 28mm, 35mm, 50mm, 70mm). They may seem a little small if we compare them to those of much more far-reaching objectives; on the contrary, the limited excursion is just its strong point. In fact it was not necessary to do optical "acrobatics" to design it and the consequence is that the yield is very good and uniform (especially diaphragm to f8) from wide angle to medium. The stabilizer (quiet and effective) adds an additional positive feature. It is between the very expensive 24-70 f 2.8 and the 24-105 f4, resulting in a very valid compromise.

Pros: Size, construction, sharpness, macro, distortion, stabilization

Cons: "Solo" 70mm

Opinion: I also owned 24 70 2.8 first and second series and 24 105 (two copies) then resold. I am not a lover of all-rounder zooms but I have to say that this 24 70 surprised me and is the only one I didn't want to resell. The smallest in the series (and it is a plus not least), impressed me for the little distortion present at 24 mm (unlike the 24 105), for the excellent overall sharpness (to be approached and very much the 24 70 2.8II) and for the excellent Macro function that absurdly makes it the most all-rounder in the series. I didn't experience field curvature issues for the photos I take. I can't find a real minus the f4 iris, when I need open diaphragms I just snap bright lenses. For me, a really good compromise.

Pros: Sharpening, stabilization, macro function

Cons: Nobody

Opinion: I purchased this lens at the end of January 2019 together with the Canon EOS 6D Mark II and it was the first "L" series lens to enter my kit. I chose it to have a good all-rounder and I used it with virtually every focal length and it never disappointed me: the sharpness of the photos has always been great and the macro function has also proved very good. A very good lens that I definitely recommend.

Pros: Sharpness, stabilizer, macro

Cons: Maybe the weight, but it's all in all contained

Opinion: I've been using this lens for a while. The constant opening F4 did not make me regret the 2.8, having now the stabilizer. I use it mainly for street photography and landscape photos (but I have to say that even in portraits it defends well). The stabilizer is a great help especially for landscapes, as far as the street is concerned it is a really comfortable lens as the focal excursion is very exploitable: I think the best of itself is just 35mm and 50mm. (Before I used two fixed, now with only one lens I do everything). Of course you have to forget the blur that can give a greater opening of diaphragm, but for what it is worth you find photos taken at 24mm, or 35mm, or 50mm that seem to come from a fixed. The distortion is quite small, so much so that sometimes I do not even correct it in the raw room. The autofocus is very precise and fast. The macro function is a plus especially for those who hike in the mountains and do not want to load the backpack with more goals. Flanked by a bright fixture, I believe that with this lens you can cover 90% of the photographic needs (reportage, street, portraits, landscapes).
