Pros: Crystal clear, amazing detail
Cons:

I was worried after reading all these reviews of focusing problems, etc. but figured I'd take a chance since I already had the Tamron 28-75 which was decent. Well, after one day with the 24-70L I noticed things I have never noticed and I am thrilled with my copy. There are no focus problems and the amazing thing about this lens which is hard to describe is the rich deep contrasty colors that just are so much more than the Tamron's or any other lens I've ever had. It beats my 50 1.8, my 85 1.8, and even my 70-200 2.8L hands down. It also is sharper and has better color than my Tamron but I'll probably keep the Tamron when I don't want to lug the beast around. I can tell that I will be taking many more exciting pictures and I don't regret spending what I spent because I have never had a lens that had the colors and resolving power of this lens. I've had this lens for 2 weeks now and it rarely leaves my 20D. Thanks for all the good posts by everyone.
