| p.4 #4 · Canon 24-70mm f/2.8L II tested by Roger Cicala |
The price shocked my a bit initially, enough so to take it out of my plans for my standard zoom.
Currently I use the 24-105, but have always disliked the excessive distortion at 24mm and for landscape the overall sharpness doesn't knock my socks off. And I tried a couple 24-70s before, but never thought it was great.
But now with this first review, I'm re-evaluating whether or not it would be worth an upgrade.
It could replace my 24-105, Zeiss 35f2, Contax 35-70, Contax N 24-85 and Contax 28f2.8.
If I look at what it replaces it actually seems like a good value!?!?
I'm definitely waiting for the dust to settle and see more reviews, but so far it seems promising.
Hopefully in the meantime, it will come down a bit in price, but I'm not expecting miracles.
The 70-200f2.8v2 was a lens that I never though I'd upgrade to either, but there it is sitting in my bag.
I waited for that one and finally gave in at $1974.
I'm wondering, are all the FMers that are considering one, will you wait?
