Pros: Super sharp wide open - amazing color and contrast, great feel.
Cons:
None.

I just LOVE this lens. The first time I bought one, was about 5 years ago when I first started working with DSLR's. I didn't like the weight, and though I loved the image quality, I sold it and bought the 24-105L instead. For the next 3 1/2 years, I had seller's remorse. I liked the size of the 24-105, and though the image quality was very good, it just lacked the WOW factor of the 24-70. About a year ago, I sold the 24-105 and bought another 24-70. I DEFINITELY have a SUPER SHARP copy and am ABSOLUTELY thrilled with it! Perhaps it's because my cameras are now gripped, I even like the weight and feel of it this time around... it is very well balanced on my 5D w/grip. I also have primes, such as the 35L, 85 1.8 and the 135L... and honestly, there are times where I actually have to check my software to see if it was a prime or, the 24-70 that was used. When I zoom in to 100%, and see perfectly tack sharp images again and again and again, straight out of my camera in RAW mode, I just grin from ear to ear. I am SO happy I got another one of these lenses... THIS one, will NEVER be sold!!! I can honestly say it is of my absolute favorite lenses, as I can always count on it to produce images that make me (my worst critic) say, "WOW."
