Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM

Review Date: Dec 10, 2012 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $2,500.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: razor sharp, zeiss like colors & contrast, overall stunning image quality, great investment
Cons:

Just picked up the new 24-70 II. This is a fantastic Canon zoom lens and worth every penny. Image quality is fantastic...beats all my other Canon L series primes except the 200 f2 IS and 300 f2.8L IS II. The colors and contrast rival my Zeiss glass. The lens is lighter than the original and has a very solid feel. I'm really enjoying these new Canon lenses!

Pros: IQ, Weight, New IS, Lightning fast AF on 1D
Cons:

My new Canon 300 f/2.8L IS II arrived this weekend and I'm in LOVE. Improvements I noticed right away were that its lighter than its predecessor, the new hood design is sweet (no more metal screw to chip paint) IQ is absolutely stunning-no other lens can do what these super teles do. I can say this lens improves on every aspect of the original IS model and may be the best Canon lens engineered to date. So excited to get out and shoot!

Pros: bokeh, sharpness, contrast, Image Stabilization
Cons:

The 200 is hands down my favorite lens. AMAZING IQ, sharpness and gorgeous 3D subject separation. The files rival my favorite Zeiss glass and the new 300 II. Thanks to the new IS, I'm able to handhold and get stunning results. I use this lens for portraits, weddings and editorial work. It's an expensive one at $6k but a solid investment that's worth every penny.

Pros: Build Quality Image Quality
Cons:

This is my first Zeiss lens and I am extremely impressed. Build quality is just superb. Very solid feel with silky smooth focus ring. The images I've produced with this lens far exceed the IQ produced with my Canon 85 f/1.2 II. Tack sharp wide open with just the most beautiful colors and contrast. What I love best is the amazing bokeh and subject separation. The images truly have a 3D quality that my clients just love. Being one of the less expensive Zeiss pieces I would recommend this lens to anyone considering it. I loved it so much, I just dropped another $2k on the 100 f/2 Makro Planar. I am now a Zeiss fan for life as I know you will be after shooting with this wonderful glass!
