Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM

Review Date: Jul 9, 2004 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,137.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Built like tank, 2.8, fast focus, sharp
Cons:
Big, heavy, little pricey

This is an awesome lens. Having coming from a 16-35 and 50 1.4 combo, I wish I would have gotten this lens first! This lens is SUPER quick to focus(on a 1D) and gives incredible background blur. It is a bit heavier and bulkier than I thought but balances nicely on your camera. The one complaint I might have is that the lens hood is HUGE. But once you put it on the lens itself, its not as bad.

Pros: Great color, sharp, focuses fast, F1.8
Cons:
not a F1.2...

Love this lens. It focuses super fast, even with my D60. I like to use it for portraits but some might find it a tad too long with the D30/D60/10D.
The boken is VERY nice.
