Review Date: Jul 8, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

Pros: Good build quality, Amazing detail in images captured,
Cons:
Price (1200.00 in Jessops at time of my purchase)

After doing my duty on the smaller basic lens's, I decide to upgrade to the 24-70mm f2.8 lens.

I was amazed at how great this len is for taking landscape shots. I own a 100-400 IS L lens, as well as a 35-135 lens, and find that the 24-70 is the main lens on my camera.

I have been able to get some great shots with this lens, coupled with my 300D body (please see http://www.mrw.smugmug.com) and would not change this for the world.

I can't wait to attach this to my new Canon 1DS MKII coming shortly, as I feel that the increase in mega pixels will make for an even better photo.

Price is a bit of a put off. Was priced at 1200.00 at Jessops at the time of my purchase, but I was lucky enough to find a deal on Ebay for 870.00.

At the end of the day, if you can afford the lens, buy it. You'll get good shots, and great clarity in the photos.
