Pros: very sharp even wide open on all focal lengths, high contrasts, solid construction, reliable and fast AF

Cons: expensive, heavy, large 82mm filter thread, vignetting at 24mm (can be easily corrected in postprocessing). Compared to the old design of its predecessor the short lens hood can't provide much protection.

Opinion: The sharpest standard zoom for full frame. Brilliant colors and contrast. Expensive and heavy but the produced images are outstanding. AF hit rate is nearly 100%, fast and reliable. Compared to the old design of its predecessor (with its 'inverse' zooming) the short lens hood can't provide much protection. The 82mm filter thread may introduce additional costs for new larger filters.

Pros: very sharp at all settings, great contrast, accurate AF

Cons: filter size, price

Opinion: I lost most of my interest in primes after getting this lens. In fact I will sell my 50mm f/1.4 after getting the zoom. The zoom is really sharp with great contrast and good rendering. My friend has seen the onion ring bokeh from out-of-focus metallic objects, but I have not encountered this yet. I wanted to buy cheaper lenses but in the long run I decided this was still cheaper, lighter, and more convenient than a few primes. AF is fast and accurate, build is solid, and I like the size of the lens hood... it isn't too obnoxious like the one with the 17-40L. It fits in my bags without having to remove it. This is subjective, but I also like how it feels in my hands. The rings are well-placed and easy to locate by feel. It balances nicely on a 5D3. The downside for me is the filters. I hoped to avoid buying more and carrying more than one set, but in the end I think this lens is worth it.

Pros: f2.8, RELIABILITY and SPEED MAF, silent, Sharpness, three-dimensionality, Weight.. ALL (No flaws!)

Cons: Some complain about the lack of stabilisation, for me it is a pro, as it saves weight; if you buy such a lens you have to have a minimum of machine body worthy of supporting it (not an entry level for sure), so you work with safety times and raise ISOs. So for me nothing, apart from the cost (but even here, it's all worth it in my opinion and there's no complaining)

Opinion: What to say, you mount it on the body and you don't really take it off anymore (try to believe). The pros are a marvel, at 2.8 it is very sharp almost to the corners, at F4 it is a blade on everything. All PRO's are well described by other users and I gladly confirm them without repeating myself! Apart from the BOKEH that does not particularly excite me (I think, however, the subjective thing), the lens is perfect for me!

Pros: Sharpness, construction, reliability, maf

Cons: Excursion, no stabilization

Opinion: Taken as a handyman instead of the 24/105 F4 L, I immediately noticed the extreme sharpness! Now I can hardly get out of the house without this lens. It has a sharpness superior even to the fixed L series, excellent focus with very quiet engine, fast and precise. The bokeh is very sweet and pleasant. The only ones in the are the poor focal excursion and the absence of stabilizer (I felt the need only by shooting indoors in the evening), things known when buying a 24/70 but making themselves felt.

Pros: Exceptional sharpness

Cons: Encumbrance, lack of stabilization

Opinion: I had it for some time, then sold it for the above cons, but then I bought it back because I missed it. Perhaps for specialistic use given the reduced albeit classic focal hike. I'm not so happy with the resistance to flare, although the second (bought recently) seems better than the previous (possible?) but the weight and size would have required the stabilizer. Ultimately a great lens to know how to use to exploit it fully.
