Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM

Review Date: Jul 24, 2010 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Sharp, versatile, fast focusing and very well built. Great all around lens for full frame sensor cameras.
Cons:
None

I sold my first copy of this lens and had to buy another because I missed it that much. This is a favorite for use on the 5DII. If I take only one lens with me, the 24-70 f/2.8L is that lens. It is wide enough for landscapes and interior shots, and long enough for great single subject portraits. It is very versatile. My own experience has been nothing but positive. I don't consider the lens to be too heavy or too expensive, and I don't feel the need for IS.

Pros: Awesome sharpness Fantastic bokeh Compact & light compared to other telephoto lenses
Cons:
None

Read a lot of great comments about this lens before buying it. All of them are true. No micro-adjustment was necessary with my 5dII, the lens was sharp as a razor right out of the box. I have other L lenses, but so far this one is the sharpest of the bunch.
