Pros: Where to begin...solidly designed! Super fast autofocus and quiet as well. The IS is great and performs above what you would expect (1/15s handheld at 200mm and razor sharp!). And, cosmetically, it is a beauty!
Cons:
Weakness....weakness...maybe those to weak to hold it...that would be it! It would be ashame to be to weak to use this lens almost all the time!

Well, I read and re-read about 300 reviews over the internet before purchasing this lens. And, as all of you that have written have mentioned the same things consistantly, sharpness! Well, that is an understatement. This lens is incredible. I have done only a few tests with it and let me tell you this, the IS works as advertised! I shot a few with and without it handheld at 200mm 1/15 of a second, and the images are tact sharp! Without it, right in the trash with those shots, if I knew how to upload those two I would. However, if you would like to see them I will email smaller versions of the IS and IS off images for yourself. The focusing is fast (ultra fast) and truly silent. My sigma lens sounds like a jackhammer autofocusing compared it now! It's a dream lens. It's beautiful to look at and so are the images it produces on my 20D. If you are like me, deciding whether or not to buy this...BUY IT! The IS is worth the money (you may grab onto a few keepers to earn that extra money right back!)

Pros: Super silent fast autofocus. The color and contrast is mindblowing. The sharpness, is almost not possible to describe...you truly have to get one for yourself to see! The first few my wife and I through on the laptop to judge, made our mouthes water. The quality you receive from the lens is just impressive. You will sell more work due to its quality than you ever paid for the lens! We purchased both the 24-70 2.8L along with its big brother (or sister) the 70-200 2.8L IS. All we can say..."is we are speechless" well, say...speechless, you get the idea!
Cons:
Absolutely nothing...the only negtive thing is they dare put the blank space here for negative things....how dare they! ;)

Like Nike...Just do it...here, Canon, "Just Get It"
