Not bad at all. And 1/160 isn't all that fast a shutter speed, at least not for me anymore. :^)

That is very, very good news! Almost crucial IMO.

A few raw files can be downloaded here. As usual, take it or leave it; in a few days I should have a few more interesting shots


Thanks a lot, Stan. And sweet kids. Very nice sharpness wide open and beautiful bokeh, especially for a zoom.

Thanks for sharing Stan. I'm really really liking what I see wide open at 70mm. The old 24-70 had some of the nicest bokeh for a zoom IMO, and from the looks of it the new one carries on that tradition.

Anyway, I'll be back! My 24/70 II is in transit...

My guess is a softbox above and to the left with a touch of fill from the camera. Still, sharp and contrasty, no?


Both lights were hard. I was using a pair of 600 flashes. One on camera and one to the left on a stand. This was an engagement shoot and I find a softbox or umbrella hard to walk around with without an assistant. It's easy to move a flash on a stand. The camera was in manual but the flashes were both shooting ETTL. The on camera flash was dialed down 1.7 stops. I think using two hard lights sometimes almost looks like one larger soft light.

Looks like killer lens right up with my 70-200/2,8IS Mk2 and the 200/2 just as StanJ tells us! Got mine this evening and only had minutes of daylight to play with! So hopefully can do some testing during weekend. Love the sharpness and back ground rendering So far happy as a clam

Managed to shoot the dog though...






and 100% crop:








This is at 57 mm /2,8 and ISO 400

Peter, I didn't know that you would be interested in getting a wide angle to short tele zoom lens...

Joshua, true, I am not much into it, but the 24-70 f/2.8 image I provided a link to is certainly nice.

He's in it for the background, under-the table BIF. Surreptitiously introducing it under wide-angle cover!

Say what you want, but the image is great for more reasons than the lens sharpness alone.

Why are we cluttering this image thread with images taken with other brands or other lenses ?

Hi Mike, no need to apologize to me, i am not the OP but personally, I wouldn't be too thrilled if people would do that to a thread that I started asking for images taken with a specific lens to be posted. You are not the first, BTW.

Cheers!

Joshual, i have no doubt that 24-70LII is the latest best from Canon but it's just the half efforts that canon has been doing last many many moons since the final IQ is just not from the lens itself...but the receiver as well. Who knows that all our older lenses can be twice of their performing if they were used with better improved sensor(s)...as illustrated by above third party samples.

Impressive Peter, unlike Canon, Nikon's gear samples are very good!

Would like to see a 24-70 G vs. 24-70 L II comparison, however might be tricky since (as Michael mentioned) the sensors are different.
