24_70EX_med_1_
Review Date: Jul 17, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $350.00 | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Price, Picture Quality Great Alternative to 'L' Lens.
Cons:
Could be a little smaller.

I work in Concert Photography and as a Teenager theres no way I can afford the 'L' Canon version. I was fortunate to meet a very kind photographer at a concert in the past who let me try out his 24-70L as he was using a 70-200. Picture Quality on the Canon is better yes but by no means justifiable by an extra $700. and this is only at F2.8 after that they are basically identical.

In terms to other complaints I have big hands and have found it hard to handle to smallness of my Digital Rebel XT this lens balances it out nicely. And as I deal in Loud Concert photography I cant even hear myself let alone the Autofocus. And if its a quiet concert/theatre chances are they wont be moving around a lot therefore I can just use MF, Which isnt exactly rocket science to switch to.
