p.1 #1 · I was wrong - can't sell my 24L II


Ya, I thought I could sell it, I was wrong. It is awesome and I couldn't have shot tonight's rock show without it. Not enough light to even use my 24-70 II luckily my tax return was much better than expected.

I am keeping it.

Let the "I told ya so" commence!

The 24L Mk2 is one of those lenses which is even better than its reviews suggest. Its images just have that indefinable "quality", its just beautiful!

15-20% down from its original purchase price (no matter if it is like never used), and you can sell it.

I had no problem selling mine. Bought at B+H, sold it on Toronto Craig's List for $50 less then I paid for it 12 months later. A saving of $400 on the best Canadian retail price at the time and it went quickly. You have to be realistic on pricing. Retro is right, 20% off retail should see it sold.

Yea, the 24L II whips the 24-70L II silly in the f1.4~f2 range.

But not at f/2.8?

I want to like this lens very much, but so far my experience with it as a CPS loaner was inconclusive. In wedding test shots, I tried shooting wide open, and wasn't too happy about daytime subdued light shots -- too much falloff/vignetting. Didn't feel I was getting an actual f/1.4, slightly closer to f/2. That was the weekend I fell in love with the 50/1.2L wide open, so perhaps that was not a good pairing to try out for best reaction. I'll give it another try.

the 24LmkII is an amazing lens.. def a ton of vignetting wide open, and if i remember my colleague's observations correctly, the lens' is closer to ~t1.6 as well.. but, it never stopped me from shooting it wide open at f/1.4 & the 24mkII almost never disappointed me on any paid outing. (only disappointment came from me picking up a Zeiss 21mm & seeing true f/8 sharpness for landscape applications, but that's apples & oranges)

still prefer my new 24-70mkII for the flexibility it offers for my style of shooting, but the 24LmkII is an amazing piece of glass - def not a mistake to hold onto it if you need it =) imo it's even better than the classic/revered 35L

Give it to me, for a small fee, I'll sell it for you.

No, I know what you mean, same happened to me with the 85L. Even my wife didn't want me to sell it.
