Haven't posted in a while, trying to play catch up with closing down 2017 and now working on ramping up my assignments for 2018.

Was supposed to fly down to Houston Hobby for three G-IV jets on Tuesday, but Mother Nature had other plans, so I flew down on Wednesday morning, instead.

Houston was hit with an ice and sleet storm and pretty much shut everything down.

Here is one shot of one of the three Gulfstream jets. Totally different for me this time, I was actually COLD on board the jets, instead of being inside a sauna.

So thankful for God's blessings. Off to Florida this afternoon. I hope everyone is having a great weekend!

I am seeking a wee bit of advice please
My 28 - 300 L just sold on ebay for a reasonable price. That gives this poor old pensioner a few notes in the pocket to buy a general purpose Canon 'L' lens.

I have looked around and got my eye on two possibilities:
a) EF 24 - 105 f/4 L (105mm but f/4)
or
b) EF 24 - 70 f/2.8 L (2.8 but only 70mm)

I will only be doing general holiday & walk-about photos - nothing too serious. But I am looking for a sharp lens.

Advice and opinions welcome - Thanks

Hi Donald,

Here's my two cents, go with the 24-70. I have owned several copies of the 24-105, none were sharp and that seems to be the consensus re: that lens. While you do sacrifice on the long side with the 24-70/2.8, you will never be displeased with the quality and speed of focus. I've owned three copies of that lens and have never had a bad one (dropping them seems to adversely affect overall quality

Have a wonderful week! So glad that you are back with us!

The 24-70 2.8 II is so sharp, it hurts. Much better lens than 24-105. But just my opinion.

I've never used the 24-70, but I always enjoyed my 24-105. It has a very useful range. Seems sharp enough to me, but maybe I lucked out and got a good one.
