Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM

Review Date: Aug 1, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,149.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Purchased two weeks ago, this lens has seen four magazine photo assignments and performed better than any other zoom I've used to date. It's an awesome piece of glass.
Cons:
It gets heavy after 10 hours of humping it around, but that's why I have a LowePro photo backpack with padded dividers.

The price put me off a bit but now that's a done deal and I'm already earning back what I spent. Since I don't have any business ties to Canon, I can freely say this is the best lens in my bag.
It's rock solid, albeit somewhat heavy, especially when mounted on my 1d Mk II, but together they are a formidable duo. If you only have enough money for one lens, choose this one.
